Gatineau Park, Gatineau

(4.8/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
Get lost in the dense woodland of Gatineau Park, a nature reserve boasting lakes, hiking trails, and scenic views. Keep an eye out for a range of bird species, including the pileated woodpecker, turkey vulture, and common loon. The 361 sq km (139 sq mi) park, one of the biggest in the country, is particularly well known for the Pink Lake hike. Trek the path to enjoy incredible views of the lake and the park's ever changing colorful trees. Other activities include renting a canoe, taking the Skyline trail, mountain biking, and skiing. Gatineau Park is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Gatineau Edition.
