You can't visit Saguenay-Lac-St-Jean region without spending at least half a day at this Zoo! Start with the train where you are in cage-wagons. You're in and animals are free ranging outside! Wow! The one hour tour will give you plenty of chance to watch bears, elk, deer, moose, caribou, wolves, prairie dogs and many more. Moreover, you will pass thru a typical Québec settler's farm and a logging camp.
After this first experience, let's visit on foot the very large and modern enclosures that are dispersed in the gigantic area. So big that you will have to cross two rivers on you way.
Do not expect lions, giraffe or hippo! This is for Northern beast! That's why you will see the four Siberian Tiger, Polar bears (I had the chance to feed them!)and other North Asia animals.
The two kids we travelled with ( 7 and 3 year old) also greatly enjoyed the farm area!
Overall, a great day that well worth the expense!
