“Lovely guided outing on the fjord as a family with young kids”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

We really enjoyed this guided kayak trip with our young kids - the only way we would've gone out there on the fjord as we've never been in a kayak before. All the proper gear was provided and everything was explained well. The kids (4 & 6) were a bit nervous before but didn't worry once we were out on the water.
We appreciated our English speaking guide (not easily available in Quebec it seems...) and enjoyed his explanations and stories on the surroundings. He did a great job including the girls as well.
Not on the cheap side but well worth the money for a safe and enjoyable experience.

“Great fun for the young and less young”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

We did a 2 hour kayak excursion with our two young (7 and 5) year old children. It was excellent. Our guide was first rate and had a string of interesting stories, legends and facts to relate to the children as we paddled. The double kayaks were light and easy to use and the kids could take a break whenever they wanted. The owner was very helpful in setting up our original date, then rescheduling twice when the weather didn't cooperate - don't worry, they won't send you out in anything you can't handle. All the equipment and clothing is supplied and was in excellent shape. The location is gorgeous. My only regret is that our kids are too young to go on the longer trips they organize! In a few years.

We speak French but everyone at the business seemed to be totally bilingual. Bring a water bottle with you!

“Lovely day for it”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

Nice staff. Our young guide was lovely and it was a nice day for kayaking but the scenery wasn't spectacular or even very scenic. There was no wildlife around. All the gear was supplied including wetsuits, jackets, waterproof bags for cameras etc. Good kayaks.

“Kayaking in the Saguenay with an experienced guide and great food!”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

This was our first multi day kayak trip. We were very impressed by Fjord en kayaks 's attention to details (they picked the right boat for your size/ability, wet suits for cool water temperature) and concern regarding safety. Our guide, Simon, is funny, organized and knowledgeable about the Fjord and its history. The scenery was serene and beautiful. The kayaking takes some physical endurance, but the company used the tides and currents to our advantage. It was worthwhile as we saw the wildlife (minke whale, beluga whale, seals, loons) and get to the gorgeous camp sites. The food is out of this world (duck confit, deer steak, local blueberry pie) and will spoil us for all of our future kayaking trip. We had such an enjoyable time. We would recommend this company without hesitation.

“4 day kayak excursion on the Fjord of the Saguenay”
Reviewed July 18, 2012

Having intended to do a kayak trip on the Saguenay since many years I finally took the decision and signed up with Fyord en Kayak for a 4 days, 3 nights excursion together with my son. I call our trip a life changing event. The natural beauty of the Saguenay Fjord is majestic.
This is a physically demanding trip which was made very enjoyable by all the members of the staff of Fjord en Kayak we interacted with. The reception by Sylvie was as if we had known each other since years. Our guide Simon has exceptional knowledge of the fjord and its weather and water conditions His concern about safety is paramount. And his cooking skills are at the level of a gourmet cook. The equipment provided (kayaks, paddles, safety gear and tents were top notch. WHAT A TRIP.
