Attraction

Explore five incredible ecosystems of the Americas all under one roof: a tropical rainforest, Laurentian Maple forest, the Gulf of St. Lawrence, Labrador coast and Sub-Antarctic Islands.

The indoor reproduction of a tropical rainforest features a humid climate, thick vegetation, waterfalls and plenty of wildlife native to rainforest areas. In the Laurentian Maple forest, you'll see deciduous and coniferous trees growing in harmony, along with birds, amphibians, reptiles and mammals such as otters and beavers. If you visit in the spring, you'll also see hundreds of beautiful flowers in bloom.

The Gulf of St. Lawrence area has a massive 2.5 million litre cold salt-water tank filled with popular fish like salmon and bass, along with starfish, sea urchins, crabs and more. Meanwhile, the cool Labrador coast ecosystem is home to 60 Atlantic puffins, common murres and black guillemots - a distinguished group of birds who inhabit the Labrador coastline. The fifth and final ecosystem is the Sub-Antarctic. Penguins play freely here, waddling around and sliding across snow-covered hills.

Plan to spend at least half a day at this popular attraction.
