Meet the wildlife of Québec
The animals of Québec are a sight to behold! To get to see a moose, a caribou, an Arctic fox or a black bear at least once in your life is a dream that many people would love to have come true.
And to make this dream a reality, we have created a new video to let you know about accessible sites in Québec. Great experiences await people of all ages, including those with restricted mobility or special needs.
In this video, Marie-Claude and Arnaud have fun on new adventures with their friends, and take you with them to exceptional sites across Québec.
There’s nothing like being around these small and large animals! Fall, with its beautiful colours, is the best time for these experiences: It’s not as hot as in summer, which makes it the perfect chance to observe Québec wildlife, and you also have the opportunity to take gorgeous pictures of the sumptuous landscapes when it’s an unseasonably warm fall season.
Check out three beautiful, accessible spots in this new video, shot in three different Québec regions:
- La Terre des bisons in Rawdon: Come escape to the world of the mighty bison at this ranch. You can take a stroll along the trails made of compacted rock dust all around the pastures to observe the bison and elk. You can continue your visit by heading to the interpretation centre to discover some of the smaller animals.
- The Zoo Ecomuseum in Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue: As you take in an incomparable and natural experience, see some of Québec’s smaller wild residents at this shelter that cares for injured animals, including foxes, otters, raccoons and porcupines.
- The Parc Oméga in Montebello: Remain comfortably seated in your vehicle, and drive across this safari park to meet the iconic large animals of Québec. One species after the next is waiting for you, each more amazing than the other.
