#2 of 18 in Things to do in Rimouski
Known for showcasing wildlife and landscape typical of the region, Parc National du Bic is a national park offering dozens of hiking and bicycle paths for visitors. In addition to rivers, salt marshes, and rocky hills, nearly half of the park is a coastal marine environment that plays home to hordes of harbor seals and gray seals. Take your coastal trek around midday to view the animals sunbathing lazily on the rocks. If you prefer to enjoy the scenery a little longer, several campsites around the park offer places to stay, but with only basic amenities in most cases. Using our international travel planner, Rimouski attractions like Parc National du Bic can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

    I loved the two days spent in this small park. It is a concentrate of nature. Beautiful bays, beautiful walks on foot or by bicycle, observation of the seals. I've seen a few meters from me, a DOE and her Fawn, little WinCE, and it was adorable. The campsite of the Rioux is the best site of the Park. Place not to be missed.

    On the plus side: The views are spectacular. There are several amazing hikes for beginners to advanced hikers. The bike path is nice, but be aware that it is not paved. On the down side: This place is very windy so if you are camping, be sure to have enough material to hook everything in place. The camping spots in the 2 services area have lots of gravel: very hard to plant your tent. Also, there are few or no trees on most camping spots in the two service area, so no shade and strong wind.

    The Grand Tour hike was spectacular and rugged. The terrain was challenging in some places. It would've been great to have gloves to protect our hands from the sharp shale roxks. We loved camping at the La Coulée campground.

    Small park yet it has a lot, and there is a lot to discover. Great place to bike, hike and relax. Great mountain and picturesque areas right next to the Saint Laurent River.

    Lovely park. Pay attention when booking a camping spot. Ours did not have a fire place.
