Sea-kayak excursions including nights on the Saguenay National Park

It’s the stuff dreams are made of... and this is one that can come true !

Set off on an expedition from L’Anse-Saint-Jean, one of Quebec’s most picturesque villages (it’s actually a member of the Association des Plus Beaux Villages du Québec). Follow the waterways of adventure down the legendary Saguenay Fjord, renowned as one of the world’s most awesome. All in an area where two large parks, the Parc National du Fjord-du-Saguenay and the Saguenay-St. Lawrence Marine Park, join to protect the pristine natural setting.

You’ll fall in love with the world of the Fjord before you know it- a world of natural wonder and historic legend. A haven of peace surrounded by nature in its wildest, most mesmerizing forms. Where you can watch the grey seals play and wait for the white Beluga to appear.
