Field Trip 7: Jacques-Cartier National Park Hiking

For students looking for an outdoor adventure and a true change of pace from the typical Olympiad events, we’ll provide an opportunity to visit Jacques Cartier National Park, and hike about 5 miles (8 kilometers) on a scenic and not particularly difficult trail. Students may elect to just do the hike, and return to Université Laval for the afternoon events there or in Quebec City, or have lunch in the park and then go river tubing in the afternoon. This trip may have a field cap, but that will be determined after consultation with the National Park authorities.
