Being active is good for your health! In fact, there’s nothing better than an outing in the most beautiful nature of Québec to enjoy all its benefits. That’s why the Gouvernement du Québec is launching an initiative that will offer free access to Québec’s national parks two days a week between December 28, 2022 and March 14, 2023.

Check the calendar for specific dates when access will be free of charge.

Limited quantity  |  Online booking required

Québec’s national parks are huge open-air playgrounds where you can enjoy a vast array of activities. To frisk about these magnificent territories without breaking the bank, why not consider booking for one of the days when access will be offered absolutely free of charge.

Access to the cross-country ski trails in Mont-Mégantic, Mont-Orford, Mont-Saint-Bruno, Mont-Tremblant, and Oka national parks, as well as to the dedicated fatbike trails in Mont-Orford and Oka national parks, will remain subject to a fee. Don’t forget to purchase your ticket before every visit.

Here are the specific dates when you can take advantage of free access to Québec’s national parks.

Note that you can book your daily access right up to 30 days before a visit.
