About the park

Located 20 minutes from Quebec City, Valcartier Vacation Village is one of the most appreciated recreation destinations in North America. Known as the largest winter playground in North America, it offers various activities enjoyed by its family clientele, which grows every year.

Valcartier Vacation Village opened in 1963 and has never stopped developing and diversifying. Since the summer of 1998, two major divisions have been added to this family attraction: Rafting Valcartier, which offers excursions on the Jacques-Cartier River (whitewater rafting, family river tour, hydrospeed, raft and canoe rental) and an ultramodern 600 site campground next to the waterpark.

Valcartier Vacation Village annonced on July 7th the construction of a major recreation and tourism complex featuring an indoor waterpark and 4-star hotel with 153 suites, the first of its kind in Quebec! This major tourism industry initiative, representing a private investment of $65 million, will complement the group’s entertainment offerings with year-round accommodations and annual activities that will be sure to please the entire family. The complex is scheduled to open in December 2016.

Today, with its 60 year-round employees, 500 seasonal jobs and more than 10 millions visitors, Valcartier Vacation Village is a major economic generator in the Quebec tourism sector.

It seeks, first and foremost, to remain a must-visit destination for families looking for pleasure and wonder in summer and winter.
