The Parc national des Hautes-Gorges-de-la-Rivière-Malbaie is one of the most beautiful natural landmarks in Quebec. Its name comes from the presence of a network of valleys deeply cut into a setting of tall mountains. The significant differences in levels, the beauty of the landscapes and the particular layout of the Malbaie River make this site unique and exceptional.
