Hikes at Parc national du Bic

The Parc national du Bic is situated on the St. Lawrence estuary. Its exceptional headlands, bays, coves, islands and mountains create an inimitable ambience. Imagine the sound of the waves, the smell of the sea and the caress of the sea breeze. Picture the sunsets, among the most beautiful in the world. Seabirds nest along the cliffs, rare plants bloom on the rocky headlands, and seals bask in the sun near shore. Beauty, tranquillity and peace...

The Parc national du Bic is located in the Bas-Saint-Laurent tourist region and can be reached via Route 132, between Saint-Fabien and Rimouski (Bic sector).

The Rivière-du-Sud-Ouest entrance is the main gateway to the park and the only entrance open during the winter.
