Perched on a 283.6 sq. km of capes, the Saguenay National Park stretches over the shorelines of the phenomenal fjord, thus safeguarding charming entryways to its proud riverside municipalities. In this magnificent amphitheatre, three gigantic marquees stand, offering to everyone a number of outdoors and interpretation activities. Each marquee offers a permanent display and has a cast of passionate naturalists. Here are three sketches being played out in this glacial valley :

Parks Quebec offers a spectacle equal to the standards of quality of any of the world's national parks. For the show to go on, the 21 parks in the Parks Quebec network protect and highlight exceptional natural areas, which well represent the many regions of Quebec.

The Saguenay National Park is where nestles one of Quebec's most invaluable jewels. The uniqueness of the Saguenay fjord, its rash and natural beauty, its cultural and historical singularities call out to you. The parks' architects welcome and applaud lasting development and the highlighting of the territory's educational and recreational potential. A solemn vow to present and future generations.

A larger than life spectacle

The park's hiking trails stretch out for 120 km. Intimately rub shoulders with nearly all of Quebec's ecosystems. From marine environments to the alpine tundra, you will be astounded by the enchantment, uniqueness and the vastness of the show. While following your host, the fjord, let yourself drift in this perilous work played out by the untamed and naked capes, the bays' chaste sandbars and the myths hiding in its deep coves.
