What people are saying about Jacques-Cartier National Park

Superb experience! This snowshoe outing lets you discover Jacques-Cartier National Park, which is magnificent, through the trails provided for this purpose. Transportation from Old Quebec is very convenient and fast (about 30-40 minutes to reach the park) and the visit lasts quite a long time. Special mention to our guide who taught us a lot about the park (fauna and flora in particular)! To do

Guides are super knowledgable and gave various explanations on the forest, in addition to showing how to snowshoe. Lunch was good and you get some free time to snowshoe on your own. My only feedback is a logo or something for Quatre Natures on their shuttle bus as it wasn't immediately obvious. Otherwise a fantastic tour and I hope to visit in the summer for canoeing!

Alex was an amazing guide! He was energetic and very informative. And made a great ham and cheese sandwich!!

Very well organized and nice guide. You can even get snowshoes if you only have low shoes.

Very nice experience. Good guide and very nice walks. To recommend.
