As the sun sets on the immense cliffs of the fjord, embark on an adventure aboard our 60-passenger Zodiac and admire this grandiose site where nature deployed colossal forces to create majestic cliffs, unique in the world. Savour a glass of bubbles and macaroons during our stop in L’Anse-à-la-Boule while admiring the sunset on the fjord!<br>Who knows, you might even encounter belugas, seals or migratory birds during this ultimate experience in the heart of the marine park?

Well worth the trip. Understanding French is helpful but don't let it stop you from coming. The facility and actors are so genuine you'll enjoy it immensely. The food in their cafeteria was delicious. Saguenay tortière was homemade. Yummy!

My wife and I visited here in August 2018. The site is a re-creation of Samuel de Champlain's original Quebec City settlement. Various actors portray roles in the village - cook, merchant, Huron woman, etc. A shuttle bus takes visitors from the main building to the (upper) village. One can walk down to the lower village and hop on the shuttle bus to get back to the start. As a group visits their locations, the actors launch into a speech describing themselves and life in the village. This is all in French, of course. My wife translated for me as they spoke as best she could. However, not speaking French, you will lose out on almost everything that is said. We did approach several to ask questions in English about the village and they were happy and able to respond in English. Through the speeches and direct discussions, we were able to learn a lot about the hard life settlers faced in New France. Luckily, we were the first to get to the Huron longhouse so we were able to get a long time with the Huron woman in English. That was very enlightening. We got to see and handle all sorts of tools and weapons. We had lunch at the on-site cafeteria, which was delicious.

The actors were fantastic! The guide, Mr. Dan, led our group in English. The actors (one in the long house, one in the kitchen, and the priest) each played their roles well and entertained our children with stories and humor. The site is beautiful. If you have seen the film Black Robe, you will recognize the sites on tour. A production on Samuel de Champlain is in the works during summer 2017. A great site that makes history come alive.

This is a really interesting place for the history enthusiast. It is a recreation of the original site that Camplain founded in Québec in 1609. If you're interested in the history of Québec since it was first settled by the French then this place is perfect for you. We really enjoyed our personal tour with our guide and found that we were able to understand a great deal more about the local area and the proud french traditions that have carried through to today. Good value but not a great deal for kids.
