View of the Saguenay Fjord with trees, in Saguenay, Quebec
Saguenay Fjord is the reason so many people visit Saguenay annually. See the fjord's soaring rocky and pine tree-lined cliffs on either a guided sea kayak tour or a local cruise. If you want to stay on dry land, the next best thing is learning more about the fjord's landscape and history through Musee du Fjord's exhibitions. The museum is also home to an aquarium, where you can handle starfish and sea cucumbers in the touch pool.
La Pulperie de Chicoutimi Regional Museum, located in an old mill surrounded by a large park, in Saguenay, Quebec
La Pulperie de Chicoutimi Regional Museum is located in an old mill and surrounded by a large park. It houses over 26,000 objects. Its permanent exhibitions include displays on the Canadian painter, Arthur Villeneuve and the Chicoutimi Pulp Company. The latter features multimedia and interactive displays on the company that shaped Saguenay. During the summer, the museum also hosts theatrical and comedy performances, and free Music Monday concerts.
If this isn't enough, Saguenay has two other historical attractions. The Petite Maison Blanche (small white house) Museum is a Saguenay landmark that survived one of Canada's worst natural disasters — a flood in 1947. Today it's a museum with exhibitions on three floors, as well as a souvenir shop. Then there's Val-Jalbert Historical Village, which resembles a 1920s pulp mill town. It's complete with historic buildings, like a convent school and general store, as well as costumed townsfolk.
When exploring Quebec, you must try a crepe. Lambert Crêperie has both sweet and savory options, which include everything from homemade chocolate ganache to duck confit. Otherwise, build your own burger at Rouge Burger Bar. It also serves traditional French dishes like moules frites (mussels and fries) and tartare.
Called the Route Des Artisans, you can follow a trail that includes 90 small businesses that sell products in nine different fields, including wood, ceramics and textiles. Any purchase would make a unique Saguenay souvenir during your Quebec cruise. Alternatively, stop by the gift shop when visiting La Pulperie de Chicoutimi.
