Photos of PARC NATIONAL DES HAUTES-GORGES-DE-LA-RIVIÈRE-MALBAIE

This park, with an area of nearly 224.7 km², was so named because of its valleys located between high mountains whose summits can reach over 1000 m. Malbaie River winds through the territory covered almost all forested areas of Quebec, maple-alpine tundra through deciduous forests, boreal and mixed. The Acropolis Draveurs leads to the highest peak in the Park, at an altitude of 1048 m. The trail Érablière, true to its name, crosses a sugar elms and ash trees of America, unusual stands in the boreal. Marten is the emblem of the park. We can spot caribou and mink and two rare species, the bald eagle and the golden eagle

Amazing place. 2K/5K/10K trek available. Place turns into a colour palette in Falls.

Stunning park with amazing views - we arrived on a Sunday at the end of September and the crowds were huge. Only those camping within the park are permitted to drive in (on weekends in the autumn, not sure about summer) all others must take the shuttle buses. We chose to do some smaller trails and return the following day to tackle the Acropole des Draveurs, and were glad to hike with a smaller crowd. We took our time and visited all three peaks, the whole thing took 6 hours and totally worth it. Highly recommended!

Stunning tract of land in the Laurentian Mountains, covering vast stretches of forests, lakes and rivers. There are countless trails and the sheer remoteness of the park make this a must see location. One of the best parks in Quebec.

Worth the hike. Start before noon and in the summer or early fall. Did not know something this amazing was tucked away in the Quebec wilderness.
