Zoo Sauvage Adventure, St-Felicien Wildlife Reserve, Quebec 'The Land of the Caribou' Overnight Trip
Zoo Sauvage de St-Felicien is on the shores of Lac Saint-Jean, at the western end of the Saguenay Fjord, and is one of the biggest wildlife parks in Quebec, boasting over 1000 animals in wide, open spaces.
This trip is a 2 day adventure called 'The Land of the Caribou' where you and your family can explore the animals and their environment in the boreal forest. Take a behind the scenes tour of the park's veterinary hospital, nursery, animal feed kitchen and polar bear night quarters and spend the night in a prospector's tent at the zoo itself. This is an unusual, but fun trip for all the family and a perfect add on to a holiday in Quebec Province.
Here's a day-by-day guide to your itinerary. Feel free to ask us to add other days or ideas and excursions by adding them to your wishlist, so we can give you the best price.View full itinerary
