The splendours of Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean

What always impresses me when I come to the region is the fjord and Lake Saint-Jean. These are two truly magical and impressive stretches of water! –Philippe Laprise

Lake Saint-Jean

With its 210 kilometers of shoreline and 42 kilometers of sandy beaches, what's not to love? Lake Saint-Jean no longer needs an introduction, year after year it charms all those who lay eyes on it. Sometimes soothingly calm, giving us time to enjoy the moment and other times, shining with the sun reflecting on its waves. The lake will bring great family moments: it will refresh you on hot days at the beach, it will splash during your fishing and it will always offer you a breathtaking view.

 

The Saguenay Fjord

The Saguenay Fjord was once sculpted by the force of glaciers, leaving behind them 105 kilometers of waterway where today cruise liners, small boats and underwater fauna coexist. The fjord offers an effortless spectacle to all visitors to Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean and is ready to accompany you on all your adventures near the Route du Fjord. Whether you want to navigate it or observe it from land, you can count on an exceptional panoramic view at all times!

 

The many ways to enjoy aquatic experiences

 


Navigate the water

Once on the water, whether on Lake Saint-Jean or on the fjord, we promise you a great feeling of freedom. The immensity of the lake and the grandeur of the cliffs around the fjord will make you feel very small in a world of giants and believe us, there are many options to make the most of it.

Let yourself be splashed during your canoe trip, let yourself be carried by the wind on a sailboat, try the maritime shuttles and cross on one side or the other of the shores.


 


Adrenaline boost

Do you love adventure and aren't afraid to get wet? The territory is full of spaces that are worth the detour. In Lac-Saint-Jean, several large natural and wild rivers are worth the detour. Dare to raft on the white waters of the Mistassibi and the Métabetchouane River and let yourself go with the wind in Kite Surf. On the Saguenay Fjord, it's time to try sea kayaking and discover canyoning.

The options are numerous and the fun is 100% guaranteed!



Rejuvenate and reconnect with yourself

Have you ever tried to close your eyes and let yourself be carried away by the simple sound of waves and water near you? The natural water sources will act leaving a soothing effect on your body and mind. We let ourselves float in the water and we take the opportunity to recharge our batteries. Take advantage of the calm water to take a paddleboard outing and try a little meditation on your board. You can also relax in a health center offering the experience of Nordic baths.


 

 


Take advantage of natural resources

Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean has a lot to offer with its national parks, natural sites, zecs, reserves and wildlife refuges and there is no shortage of choices to enjoy these natural resources. This summer, we become aware of the beauty of the region and what it has to offer. We take advantage of its abundance and generosity.

We relax on the beach, and we throw our rod in the water to catch the most beautiful and good fish in the area.


 


Lots of laughter in the water games

We can't talk about aquatic experiences without talking about water games. Always there to cool us off on hot days and loved by the little ones as well as the older ones.

Family wading pools, inflatable games on the water and indoor water games, there's no shortage of fun in swimsuits!


 

Have the space to let loose, as you wish!
