Your tour begins with a scenic drive through La Baie, where you’ll discover the importance of the Saguenay Fjord - deeply carved into the Laurentian Mountains - to the development of this area.
The Fjord Museum will explain the creation of the fjord and the mysteries it conceals. You will pass the Ha! Ha! Pyramid, a monument to the great flood of 1996 that devastated the region and proved to be one of Canada’s greatest natural disasters.
A visit will be made to Arthur Villeneuve’s Place, located in the historic paper mill. Guests are invited to see the impressive frescoes done by the local barber-painter that cover almost every square inch of his home. Your final stop will be to Le Chevrier du Nord (goat farm), a small family business that produces goat mohair wool.
