Wander through Ruisseau Bois-Joli Garden, the world's northern-most botanical garden, and discover an enchanting, metal universe of outdoor sculptures.


It’s just a short ride to the Ruisseau Bois-Joli Garden for your small-group visit to this most-northerly botanical garden. Created by the local community over 35 years ago, this stunning garden won the prestigious environmental Phoenix Award.


Your guided walk will take you along some of the garden’s three miles of delightful pathways. You’ll encounter 13 themed gardens, including a Japanese garden, a sensory garden, and a medicinal plant garden. Featuring over 14,000 plants, you’ll be astonished by the biodiversity in such a boreal location.


Just down the road, you’ll also visit a mysterious forest where you’ll find hundreds of sculptures made entirely of recycled metal. Wandering along the pathways of this surreal setting, you’ll see the magical works of artist-welder Jean-Pier Synnott. Watch his metal universe come alive with animals, planes, amazing creatures, and much more.
