LAC ST-JEAN and SAGUENAY: All roads lead to Lac Saint-Jean!

Whether biking along our scenic roads through our warm friendly villages or kayaking down our wonderful rivers, all roads lead to Lac Saint-Jean where an exciting adventure awaits you.

Fond of great cuisine, festive cultural or simply like to relax, Lac Saint-Jean has all and more to provide an 'out of this world' experience. By visiting the many diverse sites and attractions that surround our inland sea, you will come to appreciate the magnitude of Lac-Saint-Jean along with the famous 'Blueberry welcome, a name affectionately given to the people of Lac-Saint-Jean. Your visit will be a blend of human kindness and friendly encounters making it an unforgettable experience. Do as others have done before you and you will realize to what extent 'you can leave the lake, but the lake will never leave you'. And don't miss The Véloroute des Bleuets, with over 250 km (155 mi.) of delectable vistas over Lac Saint-Jean. The bike path crosses the Parc national de la Pointe-Taillon, home to moose and beavers and a prime spot for swimming, kayaking and canoeing. The Zoo sauvage de Saint-Félicien, where the animals roam free and the visitors are in cages. The Village historique de Val-Jalbert, a ghost town, which prospered for a quarter century around a pulp and paper mill built at the base of a waterfall. The Montagnais people of Lac-Saint-Jean will introduce you to their history and culture at the Musée amérindien de Mashteuiatsh.
