#1 of 11 in Things to do in Tadoussac
Walk along Sentier de la Pointe-de-l'Islet Trail, a forest trail by the ocean with marvellous views of the surrounding coast and skyline. The wooden boardwalk leads you behind the wharf to the mouth of the Saguenay River. The trail provides an easy walk, stretching just under a kilometer (0.6 mi), or you can climb freely over the rocky shoreline for a more adventurous route. The point offers an ideal atmosphere for a picnic by the water. Look out into the distance to catch a glimpse of minke whales, while seals and belugas come close to the shore to feed.

    Lovers of nature, to make the detour! In my opinion, it's the most beautiful place of Tadoussac. There are great views of the nature, the mountains and the river. In addition, we had the right to visits of belugas (by far) and the whales from close, when we go on the rocks, or if there is patiently on the balustrade of the highest point, side of the port.

    Lovely little walk near the port with pontoons, easy to do, even with small children. The start is the dry dock Street. Explanatory panels, we tell the story of this site. At the tip, at the level of the rocks, take binoculars and arm yourself with patience. We saw a group of beluga whales at the mouth of the Saguenay. Magic!
