We went during off season and it was a little cold and a little rainy, but still enjoyed our road trip with multiple stops along the way offering beautiful views of the fjord. In the summer time the hikes are open and the views would be better. The cruises offered in the summer that come up the fjord are probably... More

When I found out that Canada had a fjord, I became quite interested. I thought this was only in Scandinavia. Not so! In fact, it is the most southerly fjord in the world! A fjord where boats can navigate on and a fjord where people live nearby it. Our fjord is unique! After my excitement, I realized that I didn’t... More

We sailed down the fjord on a cruise liner as sunset approached. It was stunningly beautiful much like Norway if less dramatic with less snow in summer. The statue of the Virgin Mary seems to hover over the waters and is most impressive. A good cruise to enjoy champagne as the sun sets slowly in summer.

The title says it all. Long and short hiking trails in summer and fall. Great snowshoe trails in winter. Snow gets in very early and stays late. Go !

From our Chalet in L'Anse St. Jean, we drove to the Discovery Center which took about 15 minutes after we entered the park itself. We had previously seen this view from a cruise that we had done a few days prior. There were several hiking paths that so bring good hikers or boots with you. Some of the fjords were... More

Starting from the pretty town and harbour, it just gets better. The scenery is wonderful, especially if you get off the more used tracks and explore. Water features, cliffs, scenery. It has it all.

We cruised up the Saguenay Fjord from the St Lawrence a beautiful day and spectaclar scenery, with bonus of plenty of Beluga whales to see. When we berthed and disembarked we received a very friendly greeting from the locals. A very clean group of 3 cities with plenty to see and do. I visited the Bagotville Air museum. RAF pilots...
