We took the Sentier easy walk on a June sunny and clear skies afternoon! Brightness and Spectacular Panoramic views of St-Lawrence river, Tadoussac Bay and Saguenay Fjord. Relaxing sound of waves breaking on the rocks! A must do in Tadoussac!

A quick walk in Tadoussac but one which offers a scenic view over the bay and the fjord. Its quite an easy hike suitable for all ages.

You have not been in Tadoussac if you have not walked along this 'sentier'. Ideal spot for photos : perfect for whale spotting and fantastic views over the St Laurent, the bay and the fjord to Saguenay.

Great family oriented trail which gives you access to amazing views. Not too long, a bit busy but still worth it. Saw many belugas, 1 whale and 1 seal. Would recommend. Bring your binoculars to spot whales further out (if you spot a tour boat,...More
