NOTE: The Jardin des Glaciers unfortunately is now closed. This major Baie-Comeau tourist attraction brought a ton of visitors to the city to see the it’s natural beauty, but unfortunately was simply too expensive to keep operating. Baie-Comeau residents and supporters of this wonderful attraction have come together to put this website online as a tribute of sorts to Jardin des Glaciers. While you may not be able to experience the beauty in person anymore, it will live on through photos and video! If you have any comments or photos you would like to add, please contact us and we will put them up on the site.
