Website

Parc national du Fjord-du-Saguenay is a conservation park with three sectors, whose twin missions are education and promotion of the environment. A major attraction in Eastern North America and a witness to the movement of the icebergs that moulded this area's stunning landscapes and mysterious fjord, Parc national du Fjord-du-Saguenay adjoins the Saguenay–St. Lawrence Marine Park for over 100 km (60 mi.) in a series of bays, coves and breathtaking cliffs. Its winter scenery is truly spectacular!

This national park offers various packages including accommodations in cabins with activities, hut accommodations for long hikes, serviced campsites, primitive campsites for hikers, primitive campsites for kayakers, short and long hikes, short and long sea kayaking excursions, short cruises on the fjord, backcountry skiing and snowshoeing, ziplining, interpretation centres with permanent exhibits, interpretation activities with naturalists and theatrical presentations. Inquire about our packages!

A vast array of souvenirs, clothing, discovery products and outdoor articles is offered at the Boutique Nature. Come and visit us!
