Saguenay - An Exceptional Fjord !

Creator(s): Musée du Fjord

The Saguenay Fjord is one of the largest yet least known Fjords in the world. Granting access to the mineral rich heartland of central Quebec, the Saguenay Fjord is an essential piece of the St. Lawrence River seaway. Starting at the St. Lawrence River, the fjord stretches through the Laurentian mountains deep into the Canadian Shield. The fjord is home to both salt and fresh water species including Beluga whales, Minke whales and Greenland sharks. Discover why Champlain considered the fjord the access to the fabled Saguenay Kingdom.
