Parc Omega is a sight to see for anyone visiting Quebec. Located between Ottawa and Montreal, just north of Montebello, it is a Canadian Safari- a wildlife park.
The main attraction is a ten-kilometre nature route during which deer, buffaloes, bears, and many other animals can often be seen. Visitors to the park can drive the route and see these wild animals close at hand. there are also opportunities to get up close and personal with some of them. Obviously bears and wolves are off-limits, but you can feed and touch reindeer, an amazing experience. During the summer months, there is a Birds of Prey show that is certainly worth a watch.
Watch out for traffic jams caused by hungry deer!
A new attraction in 2010 is the Maple Sugar Shack, where you can see how the trees make Maple and how it is collected to make the Canadian staple of maple syrup and other sweets such as taffy.
The rates at Parc Omega are very reasonable compared to similiar attractions, currently at $17 per adult and $12 per child. If you are in the area, be sure to add this to your road trip- imagine perusing bears and buffaloes from the comfort of your motorhome!
