Time couples

In the course of time, the Saguenay fjord was initially the "road that walks" for the native people. Next, it became the entrance to a mysterious imaginary kingdom. Later on, it was transformed into the king’s estate (Domaine du Roy) and the fur route. In 1837, the first settlers to open up this almost virgin territory took it by assault. Then, the Saguenay was known as a tourist dream destination with the era of the "white cruise boats".
