Situated at the confluence of the majestic Saguenay Fjord and the St. Lawrence estuary where the whales come to play, this is a meeting place of giants on one of the world’s most beautiful bays.
Jacques Cartier dropped anchor here in 1535, followed in 1599 by Pierre Chauvin who built the first fur trading post, and then by Samuel de Champlain in 1603.
Tadoussac is a special place where one is never bored. It combines an interesting historical and architectural heritage, an outstanding location and nature on an enormous scale.
You can climb the fjord capes in short or long hikes, slide down the dunes to the great delight of children, enjoy sea kayaking, cycling or golf, watch whales from a boat or from shore, visit the Centre d’interprétation des mammifères marins, the Indian Chapel dating from 1747, the sand dunes area, and the Chauvin trading post.
