Day 1: Departure from l’Anse-Saint-Jean. We slowly paddle along the shores to gaze at those million-year-old rocks. We pass by the islands and the Baie Sainte-Marguerite delta. Overnight stay at l’Anse à la Barge cottage.

Day 2: Go, go, little boat…. The sea is calling us for dinner at l’Anse Sainte-Étienne. At first glance, you’ll be seduced by its white sand beaches. And when we are out on the water, we may just have to hold our paddles for a moment, and stop to admire a distant school of belugas or minke whales. We stay overnight at the Pointe à Passe-Pierre camp site.

Day 3 : What greater magic than the site where the fjord meets the St-Lawrence estuary ? This is an unforgettable moment, with the two waters intermingling and the lapping waves rocking our sea kayaks. We relax and have fun in Tadoussac and Baie-Sainte-Catherine, returning to L’Anse-Saint-Jean by boat.
