A True Gem

One word that springs to mind upon visiting La Mauricie National Park of Canada is… immense. Located in the heart of the impressive Laurentian mountain chain, this park’s 536 square-kilometres of protected land offer countless ways for nature lovers to explore the wilderness, in any season. Here you will discover nature at its purest, whether touring on foot, road or mountain bike, cross-country skis or snowshoes, or by canoe or kayak. The Parc also offers 600 camping sites from rustic to more functional. Those who enjoy a challenge can test their mettle on the Laurentian Trail, a 75-kilometre circuit with nine wilderness campsites along the way. Accompanied only by birdsong and unexpected visits from gentle woodland creatures, this approximately five-day trip guarantees its share of thrills. No matter how one chooses to glimpse its many wonders, La Mauricie National Park of Canada promises a true communion with nature.
