Parc national du Saguenay
Our team's favourites
Over 100 km in length, this inlet etched in stone and invaded by the sea, is the longest fjord in the world at this low latitude. For over 35 years, the park has protected and showcased both of the fjord’s banks that stretch over 326.7 km2 of protected territory. Whether you’re on the ground, over the sea or in the air, discover a succession of coves and bays with landscapes that are ever changing with the rise and fall of the tides.
Beluga whale watching
The Halte du Béluga (stopover) is a favourite spot for observing this extraordinary mammal. Scan the marine park waters in search of white figures... Who knows? You may even get the chance to see them for yourself!
A visit to l’Anse-de-Tabatière
One of the most beautiful areas accessible by car! No matter the time of day, you’ll be amazed by this unique location. It’s a picture perfect place so don’t forget your camera!
Montagne Blanche is the highest accessible peak in the park. This barren summit, where fragile arctic-alpine vegetation grows, offers a spectacular 360˚ panorama. Please be sure to stay on the trail!
One of the best kept secrets is found in the Baie Éternité sector. Walk to the Géant Lookout through a forest of mature trees along an intimate trail. At the top, you’re in for a breathtaking view!
Defy the via ferrata
Adrenaline enthusiasts - the Via Ferrata des Géants is the perfect challenge just for you! Clinging to the rock walls is an unforgettable adventure along one of the best aerial ropes courses in North America. Not a fan of heights? Settle in at the picnic area where you can observe the course and an 85 meter long footbridge from below.
This remote trail, located in L’Anse-Saint-Étienne near the village of Petit-Saguenay, is worth the detour! Following the coastline to the whim of coves and tides, it takes you through an exceptional pine forest with mangificent views of the fjord! And who knows? You may even see some belugas...
