Some Parks Canada places have begun a safe, gradual reopening of some outdoor areas and services, including camping. Visitors are encouraged to plan ahead and be well-prepared for their visit. Details here.

Built between 1865 and 1872, the Lévis Forts were designed to protect Quebec City against an American invasion. The last in a series of three detached forts, Fort No. 1 attests to the remarkable technological innovations of the time. Stroll through dark, vaulted tunnels, discovering underground firing ranges, a powder magazine and casemates. Learn about the history of the fort and military strategies and on a clear day, enjoy the superb panoramic views atop the fort.
