Welcome to our Guide to Parc Îles-de-Boucherville

Last modified on 2023-05-09. This page is dedicated to nature lovers and wildlife photographers who are looking to plan their visit to Parc Îles-de-Boucherville. Our aim is to provide you with comprehensive information about the park's wildlife and help you make the most out of your trip.

Two islands connected with a bridge, declared as national park, located in the middle of St. Lawrence River, accessible by car or on boat from either Island of Montreal or Longueuil. National park charges entrance fee.

How to Get Here

A pity that there is no public bus transportation available to this park. To get there, you either take a car or, in summer, you take one of the ferries from either Island Montreal, Bellerive, or Longueuil. We recommend by bike as it allows you then to explore the islands on the large network of bike roads.

What to See Here

Huge area with prairies, ponds, creeks and rivers. With this variety of ecosystems available, you may spot any of the systems common in the Montreal area. Consider though that the park is large and without transportation means like a bike you may spend a lot of time walking around. Cars are not permitted in the park.
