Right now, our priority is to make sure you have a pleasant and safe experience the next time you visit tourism businesses in Centre-du-Québec. Given the constant evolution of the situation, we’re asking that you communicate with these businesses directly to plan your trip. They can tell you their opening hours, the activities they’re offering and any sanitary guidelines they’ve implemented based on Public health instructions. We look forward to seeing you again very soon.

New on June 2020: discover our immersive night tour!

Some very strange things are happening in the forest behind Centre de la biodiversité de Bécancour. People are coming together and walking the trails holding a “luminous branch” ... as if they were walking in a parallel universe where the past, the present and the future are juxtaposed to the present.

Echoes of Origins is a new immersive outdoor circuit presented by the Centre de Biodiversité du Québec to make you travel through all the eras of the Bécancour forest and make you discover the hidden nature's powers. It's a collaborative interactive game where union is strength! 

To complete your exploration, you will be equipped with an "interactive branch", which will be both your guide and your tool, since it interacts with multimedia installations hidden along the trail as well as  with those of the other participants. On your adventure, manipulate the waters to help filtration, play like a bee by pollinating giant flowers, make it rain and more! Discover the natural phenomena of your environment with a new approach, as well as the threats to our biodiversity. Will you be able to save the forest?

Very soon, you will see that this is the most exciting and fun night trip ever!
