A real outdoor playground

Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean is like... an inside-out island! It's not a piece of land surrounded by water, it's a gigantic lake that spills into a fabulous wiver and on again into a mythical fjord. All in a sea of plains, boreal forests and mountains. It's an extraordinary place where people and nature live side by side. And where dreams of all kinds of adventure become reality.

There is so much to explore between hiking, biking, sea kayaking, kitesurfing, white water canoeing, zip lining and via ferrata (to name a few). Whatever the activity you choose, you can fill up on oxygen right on the water or at the top of the Kingdom.
