Tadoussac, Québec / Canada
About 210 km east of the Canadian provincial capital of Québec lies the small village of Tadoussac, at the mouth of the Saguenay Fjord in the St. Lawrence River. The origins of a European settlement date back to 1600, when the first permanent French trading post was founded here. For a long time the village was also one of the main centers of whaling.
Go to the reconstructed trading center for an exciting journey into the colonial past of Québec. Remarkable is also the old chapel and the magnificent "Hotel Tadoussac" built in 1864. Afterwards visit the Research Center for Sea Mammals (CIMM) before heading for an adventure for which little Tadoussac is internationally famous: one of the most spectacular whalewatching tours worldwide. Belugas, humpback whales, fin whales, dwarf and blue whales, which can be admired from here, make your boat ride an unforgettable experience!
