We were fortunate to have a break in the horrendous weather, rain and cold, for just one day when in Saint-Felicien, Quebec. We spent it at this Zoo. This is a spectacular facility! June seems to be off season for travelling in Quebec and so the Zoo was not crowded at all. I could walk up to every observation spot... More

This is the best zoo I've visited! Try and get here early and see the 4D projection that lasts about 15 minutes, it actually rains in the theater at one point during the film! Then take the train ride around the compound and see tons of animals in their habitat. Go and see the polar bear feeding, try and get... More

Maybe more interesting - although it was midday, all the animals were out and about, perhaps because it was cool and there were no bugs. Got to see bears, bison, and water buffalo up close and personal, not to mention dozens of other animals. And we practically had the park to ourselves. It wasn't cheap but we got our money's...

First, thank you for your visit and your comment. We read them all. The visit to the Nature trail Park allows for a different tour each time. The animals are free to move around and you never know what you’ll see. That’s the beauty of it. But you always see many animals. You’re right, sometimes animals are more easily seen... More

I must say I'm not a fan of zoos because I don't like to see animals in cages, however I read so many good things about this one that I had to go. The zoo is basically divided into 2 parts, one where you walk and another one where you take a train. The walking part of the zoo is... More

Thank you for your comment. Just like us, you like to see animals in large habitat. I assume that you don’t visit zoos very often, because I can assure you that we exceed largely other zoos with regards to space for the animals. For example, Japanese macaques have 6 times what they had where they were before. Macaques and tigers... More

This zoo is a great family activity. All animals are from boreal forests, which means that they are all adapted to the local climate (no sad tropical animals). The train is highly recommended for all ages.

You are right to point out that it makes sense to have species adapted to the cold climate that we have. This is why our niche is composed of animals from the north part of the planet only. Thank you for your comments. More

That´s the place I never expected to find. A wild zoo, where rare and exquisite animals can be seen free in the nature. The total area were the zoo is located is kept as natural as possible, giving you the feeling you are in an expedition. Fantastic.

We loved the ride on the train where you can see the animals in the wild, lots of bears and bison, the buildings gave a sense of life in a bygone era.
