Canyon Sainte-Anne

Experience a total forest immersion and enjoy the many benefits associated with hiking!

Enter this dizzying gash dating back to the Ice Age and carved by the powerful Sainte-Anne waterfall (74 m) in rock that is 1,2 billion-year-old. Cross over three suspension bridges, including one hanging 60 m above, and live true “naturally sensational” emotions!

  • Rise to the challenge of the “Stone Stories Treasure Hunt”, challenge the spirits of the forest with games and enchanted legends.
  • Help the Petraminis recover the colours of the rainbow broken by the giants, a virtual experience that will follow you along the trail.

More of a thrill-seeker?
