Indoor Water Park in Quebec
Our day visit to the Valcartier Bora Parc was a great success.
We have almost come to the end of our 5 day trip across the eastern side of Quebec and I will share everything with you in the next couple of days.
The full trip cost us just under $800 for a 5-day road trip across Quebec.
I can tell you the best part of the trip was the indoor water park in Quebec which my 2-year old daughter fully enjoyed.
If you are thinking of visiting Canada, and you happen to be in Quebec City, be sure to go to the Valcartier Bora Parc.
Village Vacances Valcartier in Quebec
After a 4 hour drive from Orleans (Ottawa, Ontario) to Quebec City, we did a quick stop and checked into our hotel room.
Although tired, we decided that we were going to take our daughter out to have some fun before going to bed.
She did just endure a 4-hour drive (with a few breaks in between) and so we decided some fun was well deserved.
We already had the Valcartier Bora parc on our list of things to do in Quebec City, but because it was already late in the afternoon, we did not know if it was worth the drive to the park.
After doing a quick google search, we found that the evening price was actually cheaper than the day pass at the Bora Parc.
This was a good thing as we were on a plan to travel as cheaply as we could (as we were planning another trip in a few months to Mauritius).
Cheap worked for us at this point.

About Bora Parc
Bora Parc is located about a 30-minute drive north of Quebec City.
It offers a lot of fun activities available on site should you wish to explore more.
We were most attracted to the indoor kid-friendly water park and the accommodation they had at this resort.
However, we had already made plans to stay at an alternative hotel close to the airport as it gave us quick access to leave Quebec City faster the following day.
The next time we return to the Valcartier Village, we will definitely stay at the Village Valcartier Hotel!
We got to the park just on time for the evening water park session!

Our Review of The Valcartier Bora Parc
We arrived for our evening session at around 6:30 pm. The resort offers free parking for hotel and non-hotel guests visiting the water park.
Ideally, if you can get to the Valcartier Bora Parc for 5 pm or even for 4 pm, the better for you.
You will get your money’s worth of activities.
By the time we paid, changed, showed and got into the indoor water park, it was close to 7 pm.
When you enter the Bora Parc, you will be led straight into the communal changing area which has lockers.
Mistake number one we made was not to get ourselves a locker.
They did have a spot for you to put your towel indoors, but it was pretty open, and someone stole our towels, including my daughter’s towel that we brought with us.
This still has me very upset, but we are over it.
You will also have showers and plenty of changing rooms right there. As with every water park, you need to take a shower first before going in.
The Indoor waterpark – Bora Parc
The park is a medium-sized park compared to a few indoor parks have been to.
But I fell in love with the tropical theme of the park and how everything was set up!
The place was literally the colors you see below:
It does go around the pool for about 10 minutes while you get sprayed by water jets, or have water splash you from above.

Kids Zone At The Indoor Valcartier Bora Parc
The water park had a section for kids. My daughter really enjoyed The Enchanted Forest area:
The Reef is where we spent the majority of our time which is also in the kids’ zone area.
The Plunge and Magma was also a popular spot, although I thought my daughter was too young for it.
They are a few other spots you might enjoy such as the Oceania which is similar to a beach feel. And if anything, you might want to purchase the day pass and take a look at the outdoor space.
I will do a review on that next.
Bora Parc For Couples
If you are wondering if this water park is ideal for couples or adults, then the answer is yes.
The resort includes a hotel – Hôtel Valcartier which is a four-star hotel accommodation.
It has several restaurants and a bar for you to enjoy, as well as a gift shop and Spa Valcartier which you can fully enjoy.
As I mentioned, we did not stay at the hotel, but I am looking forward to my next trip there to enjoy the full experience as well as all the amenities that the resort has.
When is Bora Parc Valcatier Open?
As one of the most popular recreational destinations in North AmericaThe Bora Parc Valcatiers is typically open all year round.
Open every day all year round from 10 am to 4 pm and 5 to 9 pm.
You can enjoy it even during winter.

We highly recommend Valcartier Bora Parc, one of the best indoor water parks in Quebec. They have so much to offer, and you are guaranteed to have a great time.
We also highly recommend staying at the Valcartier Hotel which we will be doing at our next visit!
Driving back the extra 30 minutes back to our hotel could have been better spent going directly upstairs to a room right at the resort.
