This Fairy-Tale Bridge Is Hidden In The Middle Of A Quebec Wildlife Reserve

There's a Quebec wildlife reserve in Port-Cartier that you have to see to believe because it's so picture-perfect that it doesn't look real. Seriously, it feels like something out of a fantasy novel or fairytale

One of the most magical parts of the park, Réserve faunique de Port‑Cartier–Sept‑Îles, is the iconic footbridge that almost appears to be propped up by a rock and a tree.

As visitors walk across the mystical bridge, they're met with the breathtaking and peaceful landscape.

In addition to going for walks and hikes, fishing is a popular activity because the reserve has more than 100 lakes and 15 rivers. Visitors can also hunt, canoe, and pick berries — basically anything you'd picture a super outdoorsy Canadian doing.

To get there, it's about a 10-hour road trip from Montreal, but it's definitely worth the drive.
