Impressive and diversified, nature can be enjoyed a thousand different ways in Québec. On a hiking trail, in an urban park, on the banks of a river... But to appreciate nature even more, regardless of the season or whether you’re venturing out solo, as a family, or amongst friends, opt for the nature-crazed... museum route!
The museum institutions featured in this Itinerary provide ideal conditions in which to approach fauna and flora from Québec and elsewhere in the world. Get right up close beside animals, reach out and touch starfish, listen to nocturnal fauna, appreciate taxidermic specimens in settings that are almost lifelike... Countless secrets are to be discovered about such creatures, through enthusiastic naturalists, captivating exhibitions, and sunny excursions!
Some museums invite you to continue exploring beyond their walls. Travel through magnificent landscapes, touch the stars, or even stride across a glass skywalk!
There’s no time to waste, so start riding, walking, or why not even, paddling towards enjoyment and the unknown.
Have fun discovering nature... and its secrets!
