Frequently asked questions

  • Do I have to buy a daily access to the national parks for my children when I book accommodations?
    • No, children are admitted free of charge to all national parks, whether you're visiting for a day or staying for several days.
  • Do I have to count children when looking at the maximum capacity of an accommodation unit or site?
    • In cabins: no, because it’s possible to add children beyond the cabin's maximum capacity. For example, for a cabin identified as having a maximum capacity of six people, you can add four children free of charge when booking, for a total of ten people. Note that you will need to provide everything necessary for children to sleep comfortably and safely in the accommodation units. Find out more
