Just 30 minutes from Québec City, you’ll fall under the spell of a vast mountainous plateau cut by deep valleys. Parc national de la Jacques-Cartier is host to one of the most beautiful glacial valleys in Québec, the spectacular Vallée de la Jacques-Cartier. The Jacques Cartier River, calm in some places and turbulent in others, has sliced a 550-meter-deep channel into the plateau. A coniferous forest dominates the high plateaus, and deciduous trees people the deep valleys. Here, nature is both inspiring and serene.
With a light breakfast at the hotel before departure, you'll be in awe at just how gorgeous this Canadian National Park can be in late autumn. Prepare to dress warmly (think layers) and get ready for a 3-4 hour round-trip hike, where we'll plan to have lunch before hiking down and returning back to Quebec City. We'll hit a market and will pay for your lunches etc. We'll clean up and regroup after we're back at the hotel in Quebec City for another group dinner (included in the tour) and night out and additional optional activities, such as a craft brew tour and more.
