During the 15km car trail, it is prohibited to exit the vehicle even just to take photos. You are allowed to get out of your car in the dedicated walking trail zones, in the Land of the Pioneers and on the First Nations’ Trail.
We do not advise driving through the park in a convertible car (Jeep, Tyrex, etc.), because the animals’ head can enter the vehicle and you do not have much protection. It is forbidden under any circumstances to drive through the park in a Jeep or convertible without doors or a roof. Omega Park is not responsible for accidents. At the admission, we will ask you to close the top of your convertible or to put the doors and roof back on your Jeep.
You can buy food at our snack bar – La Cookerie (in summer only). There is also a drive through restaurant serving takeaway sandwiches and snacks situated at the beginning of the car trail, at the Park House.
For the moment there are no car charging stations in the park. However, you will find a car charging station at the Montebello Train Station, situated at 502-A, Rue Notre-Dame, Montebello (Québec), Canada.
There are always risks involved in driving amongst wild animals. The safety instructions that are given to you upon your arrival must be followed at all times. This will greatly reduce the risk of accidents involving animals. Be careful, you are driving at your own risk.
Yes, you may do the visit with your caravan or trailer. If you would like to park your trailer before the visit you can do so in the accommodations zone. Please note that the park is not responsible for theft or vandalism.
You may take photographs of the animals. However, during the car trail you may not exit your vehicle. You must take photos from inside your vehicle. We suggest that you take care not to scare the animals by using the ‘flash’ on your camera. Windows should be opened half way.
Some of our walking trails are unsuitable for people with reduced mobility or for strollers. The paths that are the most accessible are those in zones 4 and 11. The paths in the accommodations zone include some steps.
