Sentier de la Pointe-de-l'Islet Trail, Tadoussac

(4.9/5 based on 300 reviews on the web)
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.

  • Lovely walk around the point. You walk on the boardwalk or rocks. There are few benches where you can just sit and relax . We saw whales slowly swimming in the middle of the river. Stunning. Place is ...  more »
  • Incredible as it may seem, walking on this path is also possible, with a little luck, observe any cetacean venturing close to the shores. I repeat, I too when I read this, I was very skeptical, but I was proved wrong by the facts. Mind you, don't expect to see Moby Dick jumping out of the sea, but especially at sunset it is not unusual to see some fin tick off.

  • nice ride, where you can have a chance to spot whales; the trail is well maintained and easy
