7 Quebec National Parks Where You Can Get Wild With Your Doggo

When it comes to our furry friends, we know that we want to bring them everywhere with us. But, as we also know, that isn't always allowed. Now that summer is here, it's time for your four-legged bestie to come join you on an adventure throughout one of the many national parks in Quebec

For anyone who has a dog, you know how special these four-legged creatures really are. These furry companions prance their way into not only our hearts but our families as well.

Whether you're climbing a mountain, taking in the views, or just absorbing the beauty of the province's natural beauty, it's nice to know that you can experience it all with your dog by your side. 

Since May 2019, dogs are welcome in all Sépaq national parks with the exception of two of them: Parc national d'Anticosti and de 'Île-Bonaventure-et-du-Rocher-Percé.

The following national parks all allow dogs, and there are even more of them where you can explore with your pet.
