Walk, explore !

With more than 20 km of trails that connect the different sectors of the park, our network of walking paths is ideal for hikers of all skill levels. While crossing a rock formation or a footbridge, the nature will surprise you with its beauty. Stunning landscapes, falls, rapids and forests follow each other, even on the shortest sections. If you pay attention, maybe you will notice the most unseen wildlife specimens who live in the park... Picnic areas are available along the different hiking paths.

Three unique concepts: relaxation guaranteed

Along the Batiscan River, our shelters (lodging, cabins) have everything to please both lovers and families in search of tranquility and great outdoors experiences. The Pod will surprise you with its fun rounded shape and with its beautiful brightness. Le Perché (the Perched), high up, offers upstairs beds on mezzanines accessible by ladders. L'Islandais (The Icelandic), partially buried underground, has intimate access to large rocks on the shore. Without water or electricity, but comfortable and well equipped, a stay in one of our shelters is always a good pretext for laziness... or taking a walk in the forest.

Rental offered all year round.

Tree-to-tree trail (c)PRB

Brave the rock wall, the tree climbing adventure and the zipline over the waterfalls !

Fall back into childhood : climb trees, face the rock wall, jump into the void above water. Anyone can enjoy this challenge. The Via Ferrata takes place on a rock wall. The activity may look like rock climbing, but instead of climbing you are most of the time moving horizontally. The Via Ferrata Route is distinguished by its breathtaking landscapes along the river and its white rapids.
