Wildlife Area Nature / Park
At L'Ile aux Papillons, 100 different species of butterfly flit about inside a greenhouse built to mimic the colorful creatures’ natural environment. The brilliant colors of the butterflies give moving magic to the greenhouse’s lush flora and fauna. When that first flyer mistakes your shirt for a flower, you’ll be overcome with wonder. The butterflies' controlled environment provides them with the safety they need to multiply, so you can observe their life cycle in all its stages.

  • It's a nice place to see butterflies and moths. Nicely laid and with good planting. It is very expensive though for a family visiting and not really sure it's worth the money.
  • Great place to see or take photos of butterflies, be warned that it's hot inside!
  • Cool place loads of butterflies
  • Great time spent with your family. For the little ones is that of wonder! the only negative point, the time of the visit. And the amount for a child of three is a little expensive... after must certainly maintain the structure and it must have a cost which probably affects the price of the inputs. To do!

  • Very nice place. Ideal for children. Friendly staff. I recommend. Price a bit excessive but worth a look.
