The Jardin des glaciers, situated by the St. Lawrence River and in the heart of a World Biosphere Reserve, is an integrated site for interpretation, exploration and education, whose values rely on scientific content, and is set in an unusual and exceptional environment. It deals with the Ice Age, climactic changes and the migration of first peoples. It does this by proposing three distinct experiences: the MULTIMEDIA ZONE, the NATURE ZONE, and the ADRENALIN ZONE.

Being that I was on a cruise, there weren't many choices of what to do here. After this visit, we went to a logger village.

I was on a cruise tour. I would skip this site. We also went to a loggers village on the tour. This was good for historical perspective of the region.

The technical and photo-technics are just fantastic and you feel every bit that you are there whether you are listening in French or English. BUT, that only scratches the service. Imagine that you are facing the ice pack that reaches 4 kilometers (2 and a half miles) into the air. It certainly puts man's importance in perspective. The pictures and... More

We were told about this place by the tourist bureau. We did the interior tour and the sea shell midden and thoroughly enjoyed both. The multi-media tour was excellent. They permit overnight camping for RVs in their parking lot. This has a great view of the St. Lawrence.

Another great place to visit while in the Baie Comeau area. Although some have said that they were not bilingual, we had no problem as long as we attempted to speak french, they were more than hospitable and warm toward a group of obviously non quebecers.
