What are the Kouchibouguac red chairs?

Looking for that special place where all your worries melt away? At 9 enchanting locations throughout Kouchibouguac National Park, you can find our big red Adirondack chairs waiting to be discovered. Some are easy to find, while others require more of an adventure!

They have been placed in quiet, scenic locations carefully selected by Parks Canada staff because these places inspire the truest sense of "awe." How many of them will you find on your next visit?

Where did the red chair idea come from?

In 2014, our colleagues at Gros Morne National Park installed 18 sets of chairs around their park. Visitors have been seeking them out and sharing their chair adventures ever since! The program is now growing to include a number of other national parks, and Kouchibouguac is one of them!
