Join us for a moonlight walk around the Mackenzie King Estate, located deep inside Gatineau Park.

Our tour routes have been redesigned to take place entirely outdoors. We will have many great locations to see and explore but indoor spaces are not currently accessible due to safety restrictions. As of Sept 1, 2021, proof of vaccination will need to be shown by all participants before starting the tour as per Quebec’s COVID-19 vaccination passport requirements.
