Fall in the Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean region truly is magical, and there’s an abundance of ways to make the most of it. It’s the perfect season to slow down and stay in cozy accommodations overlooking larger-than-life landscapes, go for an invigorating hike, taste the comforting flavours of fall and get pampered at the spa. Escaping to the Saguenay region is all that, and so much more!

Stay on the shores of the majestic fjord

With its breathtaking view of the Saguenay Fjord, attentive service and comfortable accommodations, the Auberge des 21 is the ideal place to stay if you want to discover the beautiful village of La Baie, offering easy access to the region’s treasures. This inn’s location close to the cruise terminal means you’ll get to contemplate the impressive ships that stop there. You’ll also have the opportunity to marvel at the vibrant fall hues on a nature hike and immerse yourself in culture by exploring captivating museums.

Feast on local food and regional specialties

Local gardening business Les Jardins d’Alex et Jennie have set up their stands at the gateway to the Saguenay region, where they offer a wide array of fresh, seasonal vegetables and berries as well as rustic bread. Make sure you try out their specialty – sweet corn! You can also pick your own pumpkins, carrots and potatoes directly from the field. Families will love the cute farm animals, the mini-train and the fun corn maze. After working up an appetite, stop at the pataterie to snack on fries, poutines and chips. There’s also a nice picnic area where you can have a bite while sipping homemade lemonade to round off your country experience on a gourmet note.
