At Parc National du Bic there are 19 Huttopia tents on the Rioux campground, in a peaceful area close to a rapidly growing area of forest, and five tents at Cormoran à Aigrettes loop of the Rivière-du-Sud-Ouest campground.
The comfortable, ecologically designed, high-quality accommodation blends perfectly with nature. Made from canvas and wood, Huttopia tents have been set up in most of Quebec’s national parks, however there other options too: a cabin, called a Cahutte, as well as standard campsites. Each Huttopia tent contains: two queen-sized beds, lighting and back-up heating, a propane camping stove and a small refrigerator, plus everything you need to prepare meals – except food.
A Huttopia experience is a family holiday that’s all about simplicity, authenticity, nature and wide open spaces. Each Huttopia village is a tranquil natural setting in a forest or preserved area with a view of a mountain, body of water or majestic trees – offering a chance for families to get back to nature. You can explore on foot or bicycle, or sometimes even on horseback, and participate in original nature discovery activities.
What you won’t find – or even miss – is just as important: at Huttopia there are no spas or air conditioning, TV or Wi-Fi access, no large-scale planned activities, and no manicured lawns or trimmed hedges – just untouched nature and a friendly atmosphere.
