Majestically encased in the hollow of two mountain massifs, Fjord du Saguenay flows 96 km before emptying into the Saint-Laurent estuary. It was shaped after glaciers deepened the valley allowing seawater to invade the newly carved inlet. The expanse of forest and marine environments creates astounding biodiversity whose beauty and richness will let you discover nature at its grandest and leave you with captivating and unforgettable moments.
