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.

Larger than life, the fjord is truly impressive seen from the water and from land. When we sailed up to Tadoussac and into the fjord we saw seals, whales and belugas. It was magical

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!
