Depart by kayak from the marina of L’Anse-Saint-Jean. You'll have a view of the majestic Caps Liberté, Égalité and Fraternité as you paddle. Enjoy swimming at L’Anse de Tabatière and take a lunch break at L’Anse Aimable. Feast on a gourmet dinner of duck confit and enjoy the evening sky before heading to sleep for the night along the shores of the fjord at L’Anse du Portage.


On your second day, explore another part of the Saguenay: the islands of Saint-Louis and Saint-Barthélémy. Walk on thousand-year-old rocks and enjoy a delicious meal.
