Hiking Quebec's Saguenay Region - August 13, 2022 - 8 Days

    Include this trip as one of your active travel style vacations close to home.

    Quebec celebrates itself as a patchwork of regions. While these may vary, many would say the quintessential essence of Québec is best found in the Saguenay region. This tour is a loop, beginning and ending in the cultural and political heart of the province, Quebec City. In between, we will explore the historic forestry region of Lac St. Jean, the spectacular fjords of the Saguenay River, the whale watching capital of Tadoussac, and the mountainous north shore of the mighty St. Lawrence River.

    Challenging Hikes on Mountain Trails

    This tour includes a variety of scenic hikes through the boreal forests of Québec. In fact, this is a tour-de-force of many of the greatest hikes found in Québec’s National Parks – Jacques Cartier; Saguenay Fjord; Monts-Valin; and Hautes Gorge.

    Whale Watching in Tadoussac

    No trip to the Saguenay region would be complete with a boat trip to see the whales where the Saguenay River joins the St. Lawrence. See these gentle giants from up close, with the backdrop of the North Shore mountains. The latest rage for adrenaline enthusiasts is tackling a ‘via ferrata’ climbing/rappelling course along a breathtaking sheer mountainside. While this a-la-carte experience is not for the faint-hearted, it will provide memorable moments for those who try it!


    Québec City

    Before we head off into the forest, we will spend a night in splendid Québec City, where our hotel is a perfect base to explore 400+ years of history in the Old City, where we will enjoy two walking tours led by professional local guides.
