Parc Omega is an absolute gem less than an hour drive from Ottawa and such a fun wildlife park! The park is open year round. Sometimes they have Groupon tickets available for a steal but it’s absolutely worth the full price ticket.
The park consists of 12 km of outdoor driving trails to enjoy Canadian wildlife in their natural habitat. The park has elk, bison, wolves, bears, foxes, birds of prey, deer and more! The park recently welcome three orphan moose. If you have a DSLR or Mirrorless camera, I recommend renting a telephoto lens (if you don’t have one).
Fee: Prices range from $30 to $35 per person at the gate. If you can get a groupon, buy your ticket online, or go in the off-season, you can get a discount! You can also get a season pass for about $100 so if you plan on going three or more times in a year, it’s worth it!
Time: Changes per season. There are day passes and night passes, as well as the opportunity to stay in the Wolf Cabin.
Bring: Carrots to feed the wildlife (you can buy them at the visitors centre).
Parking: There is parking at the visitor centre and the Land of Pioneer’s Attraction but you’ll need to drive your vehicle around the park (or you can rent a golf cart in the summer).
Location: Montebello, Quebec (about one hour from Ottawa)
BONUS: Stop at the Chutes de Plaisances for a wonderful walking trail and waterfall.
Upon entering the gate, you’ll receive a safety pamphlet and map of the park. The park itself is well signed with the route and animals but the map is fun to have.
There is a Birds of Prey demonstration as well as Feeding the Wolves at scheduled times of the day. Check out their website and arrive early – it gets busy!
Without further ado, here are some of the wildlife photos I’ve taken at the park!
