  • A statue that is remote, remarkable, storied and sanctified. To get here you have to traverse 3.8 km of arduous terrain going mostly uphill from the Discovery Centre at Parc National Fjord-du-Saguenay...  more »
  • A beautiful park, a variety of available activities (hiking, biking, kayaking, zodiac, fishing, etc.), a great view of the Fjord. We already have the path of the Statue, several years ago, a good 3 hour hike with steep climbs, lots of stairs. This time, it was the Via Ferrata that interested us. A climbing course on a wall of 200 metres with a suspension bridge to cross, a unique way to see the Fjord-du-Saguenay. We chose the intermediate course (the large slab) which requires a good physical shape and a certain recklessness. It takes a good 4 hours to complete the activity. You need not be afraid of the vacuum. I would say that it is better to have already done the climbing because breakfast 5 minutes of initiation has failed to convince me to join the hike (I had no notion of climbing at the beginning) and despite the fact that I am in good physical shape. Because although it is mentioned that we are making progress at our own pace, if we want to avoid being a burden to the group, sometimes you have to say, I'll pass. I have so from myself to let my husband go alone. He really loved the experience which he described as the biggest 'thrill' of his life. My husband assures me that in no time, he felt that his life was in danger, if it follows the guidelines of the guide. Fortunately, there are several routes with different levels of difficulty so for newbies like me, a beginner course will be more suitable for a next time. It is important to know that we pay the activity in advance then to get back you will need your guide allows your opt-out at the reception. Don't forget your repellent as those sold on-site are very expensive. If you like adventure, here is an activity for you

  • One of the most beautiful park in Canada. Great sunset/sunrise, beautiful trail, whale (Beluga and others), camping, name it !! Great experience. Definitely recommend it.
  • Had not enough time to walk around but it's obvious that it should be a great experience. The nature is amazing and one could plan for a short to 3-4 days walk!
  • Great view! if you are planning to take the boat, grab some coats because it gets cold (even in summer).
  • One of the most beautiful places I've been to not only in Québec, but in Canada. Strongly recommend trying the Via Ferrata. Intermediate isn't overly difficult and the experience is incredible. Kayaking through the Fjord is absolutely breathtaking also. A must-see traveling destination. Would love to go back again later in life with family
  • Beautiful super deep river with whales coming in the mouth of the river. It's truly a gorgeous area
