Explore the Kingdom of Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean! The 100 km Saguenay Fjord is the southernmost navigable fjord in North America.
Lake Saint-Jean is a huge inland fresh-water sea with more than 210 km of mostly sandy shoreline and surrounded by vast fields of wild blueberries. Located 210 km northeast of Québec City and easily accessible by train, air, or bus, the region is renowned for its rich francophone cultural heritage, its 256 km cycling trail called the Véloroute des Bleuets, its four national parks, its world-class boreal wildlife park, its authentic 1920s ghost town, and its variety of religious attractions. The accommodations and restaurants available in the region are second to none.
The hospitality and good humour of the locals (referred to as ‘bleuets’ or ‘blueberries’, after the sweet wild berry that grows abundantly in the region) is legendary and will ensure a memorable visit.
