Day 1 : Departure from L’Anse-Saint-Jean. With Saint-Louis Island, the Fjord looks awesome. We have three days to get acquainted with the otter, the common seal and, with some luck, the beluga (distance of 400 meters). We spend the night at the camping site L’Anse au Cheval.

Day 2 : We cross the Fjord at L’Anse de Brise-Culotte to havelunch on the warm sand at Baie-Sainte-Marguerite. A meditative and dreamy spot with beautiful beaches and a delta that offers a unique view of the Fjord. At sunset, we settle in for the night at L’Anse des Ilets Rouges.

Day 3 : Have lunch at La Petite-île and L’Anse Gagnon, a paradise for those of us who love the Saguenay. After three days at the waters edge in the ocean breeze, we settle for a leisurely return to L’Anse-Saint-Jean to rejoin the Fjord en Kayak team.
