Fall in Bonaventure

Early fall is the best time to enjoy the great outdoors in Bonaventure. You can witness first-hand one of the spectacles Canada is famous for: watch as the leaves turn from green to red, to gold, and finally to brown. Head out on a hike in Carleton or Maria and admire the fall colours in the background, or visit the Bioparc wildlife park in Bonaventure and watch the animals prepare for winter. If you’re daring, paddle down the Bonaventure River and take in the breathtaking scenery.
