Find your bliss around the lake and fjord of the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean region

Explore a picturesque, Zen region full of opportunities for outdoor activities and sense-heightening scenery from the lake to the fjord. Admire the majestic Saguenay Fjord and its breathtaking landscapes from a via ferrata trail, on a road trip or on a hike. Glide over crystal water on a kayak trip, a naval shuttle or cruise or a whale-watching expedition or rest a while on the beaches of fine sand around the lake. Cyclists on the Véloroute des Bleuets and travellers in cars can see the Lac-Saint-Jean area and its cities, villages and charming farms. Visitors will appreciate the region’s history, while the boreal cuisine will appeal to foodies. At the end of the day, relax at the place of your choice, whether a hotel room, cottage, inn or a tent on a campsite.
