The port city of Saguenay in Quebec, Canada, opens up the Saguenay Fjord Route – a spectacular two-mile waterway of mountains and rising cliffs protected by three National Parks. There is a decidedly French atmosphere and a touch of the old world in the area’s quaint villages.

Saguenay is popular with Quebecois who enjoy hiking and kayaking the glacier-carved Saguenay Fjord National Park, a spot of ice fishing or a visit to the Fjord Museum. The mouth of the fjord is home to billions of krill, which attracts various whale species like the Beluga Whale.

Saguenay is the union of a number of cities and townships and known mostly for its electricity generation and timber and bauxite exportation. Local attractions include the fascinating glass-blowing workshop and the Angora goat farm where artisans create mohair garments in the traditional manner.
