This was a wonderful boost cruise with a great tour guide. Lovely small village to relax for a meal as well. You can hike to a lookout overlooking the area that is worth it.

Visited here twice to do the Statue hike and the Giants hike. Trails are great, people are friendly, landscape was breathtaking and learning about glacial impact on the Fjords while on the hikes put everything to scale. I definitely recommend jumping in the water at the end of a long hike (even if it's super cold!) cause there is no better way to feel refreshed and clean after a long day hiking!

What a beautiful place!!! I am a geologist and I have a great fascination for the processes related to the formation of fjords. I have visited several fjords all around the world the world and this one is really special. Not only because it is the southernmost fjord in the northern hemisphere, but because it offers perfect views and trails are in perfect conditions. I did the "sentier de la statue". It was fascinating. There are three perfect viewpoints to appreciate the landscape, but there are exceptional views along the entire route. I recommend visiting this place during the fall because the landscape is extremely colorful. I love it :D

The place is amazing and the location itself deserves 5-star. The only very disappointing aspect is the fact that there is no drinking water available at the interpretation center. It’s the start of most hikes and we ended up having to buy bottles of water. This should be announced way sooner when you arrive in the park or, being it’s 2019, they should find a more sustainable option. I can’t believe a state owned park can sell bottled water.

Breathtaking. Kayaking there is a must. The tides are pretty impressive, be careful to time your kayaking excursions with the them. The hikes are super nice too. The via ferrata was a unique and beautiful experience that I would highly recommend. One of the most beautiful national parks in Quebec for sure.
