Discover The Saguenay Canada

In the centre of the country, the Saguenay has its source in Lake Saint-Jean, then crosses a landscape marked by mountains and cliffs, before reaching the Saint Lawrence River. The river then draws a magnificent and very deep fjord. During the winter season, the Saguenay fjord is one of the most popular places for fishing under ice in the region. To be protected from the wind, this type of fishing, inherited from American Indian customs, is done from wooden cabins.

    Most of the 275,000 inhabitants live in the towns located along the banks of the river, where the way of life is still very culture-orientated.
