Jacques-Cartier National Park | Places We Visit in Quebec
This national park encompasses traditional lands of the Montagnais and Huron people, who were also the area’s first Expedition Leaders. They guided Jesuit missionaries through the region beginning in the 17th century.
The high plateaus are dominated by black spruce and other conifers, while the valleys are characterized by deciduous sugar maple and yellow birch. Wildlife abounds in the park, including more than 130 bird species, moose white-tailed deer, beaver, river otter, red fox, lynx, wolves and porcupine.
