St. Lawrence Islands and Saguenay Fjord

from $2,095.00 / Double occ.

Leaves from Montréal and Québec City
Duration: 6 or 8 days

Some 40 isles, islets and island-like entities dot the St. Lawrence River between Québec City, the South Shore and Charlevoix on the North Shore. An ideal itinerary for contemplatives as we sail slowly along riverbanks, shorelines and archipelagos, taking the time to observe the local wildlife and plant life accompanied by specialists, who will help you discover unusual facts about island environments. Then, we will be able to admire the grandiose Saguenay fjord, a deep gash in the Laurentian Mountains, bordered by steep cliffs ranging from an average of 150 m in height to more than 400 m in certain locations. At our destination, Cap Éternité, the water’s depth mirrors the mountains’ height. The fjord’s deep, majestic gorges result from the last glacial era. For those wishing to round out this initiatory journey with physical activities, stops are planned at Île Verte and Tadoussac, among others. Depending on the season, we will join experts for interesting, theme-based activities including the song festival in Tadoussac in late June, the perseid meteor showers in the Saguenay in August, migratory birds in Tadoussac in September, shipwrecks along the St. Lawrence, etc.
