Mission and Special Features
Conservation, promotion and education
The national parks and marine conservation areas in the maritime regions of Québec are administered by the following bodies:
Although their names and missions differ slightly, these organizations have similar objectives: to protect, conserve and promote our regions’ natural heritage for the education, recreation and appreciation of present and future generations.
One of the main characteristics of national parks is that they offer visitors various interpretive programs as well as guided activities. The purpose of such activities is to enrich visitors’ experience and allow them to learn while having fun.
Don’t miss this opportunity to commune with nature while interacting with friendly interpreters, who will be happy to share their knowledge with you.
Since the purpose of national parks is to protect species and ecosystems, hunting and fishing are forbidden as is most harvesting, except in designated areas where you may pick berries or harvest shellfish.
National parks invite you to prolong your stay by taking advantage of the many lodging options they offer: campsites, cabins, four-star hotels or, for something more unusual, yurts, Huttopia tents or oTENTik tents. Make the most out of your vacation by staying in these remarkable sites!
