“Lovely interpretive walk - must see in Tadoussac~!”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

Definitely worth the time to stroll along the boardwalk and well-marked trails and take in the scenery in Tadoussac. Not a strenuous or technical walk, but natural trail and rocky path with some steps -- fine for kids or mobile seniors. Bring a jacket or sweater so that you are comfortable stopping to appreciate the views - as it can be chilly/windy out on the rocks! If you are lucky, you may even see some whale action in the waters.

“What a nice surprise! DON'T MISS”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

The trail starts to the left of the marine center up a flight of stairs. It starts in the woods and suddenly out you pop on the rocks overlooking the bay. We saw a whale swimming and diving. What a treat. This is easily done with kids and it is not handicap accessible. However, if you have limited mobility there is a nice view of the rocks and bay from the marine center.

“Great trail!”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

We hiked this trail with our dog and two young kids, aged 7 and 10, and all of us loved it!

The scenery is breathtaking, the fauna and flora is so varied, and the lookout midway down the trail, overlooking the mouth of the Saguenay River, makes it all worth it. Small whales and belugas can be seen from here, though when we were there, we only saw a few small whales at a distance. Regardless, a definite must on anyone's list of things to do while in Tadoussac.

Don't miss the other trails around town, including the Dunes, the Beach, and Pointe-Noire across the harbour in Baie-Ste-Catherine.
