Get lost in the dense woodland of Gatineau Park, a nature reserve boasting lakes, hiking trails, and scenic views.

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.

  • I loved walking on the Pink Lake Trail. I go there often during the summer before the sunset.

  • Beware of two things! a) sites are described as "secluded" and "private? but are neither; despite being isolated in terms of their distance from the main gate, facilities, etc, the sites are still packed in very tightly - little space or privacy between them. 2) Firewood is $10/bag and the bags are quite small! This was a bit of a shock being used to the larger bags in most Ontario provincial parks that are usually ~ $7/bag. It's a beautiful location, and quiet if your neighbours are quiet, but I think I'll look elsewhere next time.
  • Gatineau Park, what can I say that has not been said before. The place gets packed during the fall season, so if you want to go, go early but make sure you stop by the Mackenzie King Estate for some afternoon tea and a stroll around the premises. A nature enthusiast paradise, just be careful not to wonder too far off the beaten path as people have been known to get lost for a few days.
  • We did a 4 hour Hike at Luskville Falls. Amazing and challenging experience. I recommend this to any adventurer. Make sure you are well prepared for the hike up. Lots of rocks.
  • Beautiful park. I high recommend Wolf Trail. 8km (ish) with a great climb and beautiful views.
  • Absolutely beautiful. Check out Pink Lake and the Champlain lookout if just visiting on a nice afternoon. Be very careful of cyclists when driving down the windy roads!
