La Mauricie National Park features many inspiring places for visitors and Waber Falls is one of them. At 27 metres in height, the falls have a water flow that varies with the seasons, offering spectacular panoramas.

How to prepare

This one-day excursion combines canoeing and hiking. So plan to leave early in the morning, bring your lunch and plenty of water.

It is recommended to enter the park through the Saint-Mathieu entrance. The starting point for this excursion is the Wapizagonke picnic area.

Before putting your boat in the water, be sure to wash, empty and dry it. Following these simple guidelines will help protect the lakes in La Mauricie National Park from invasive alien species.

You can also rent a boat at the boat rental kiosk. We suggest that you reserve in advance to avoid disappointment.
