Getting To Know Tadoussac

Tadoussac is located where the St. Lawrence River meets the Saguenay River and is one of the most exciting whale-watching sites in the world. Between May and October, up to 13 species of cetaceans make their way upriver from the Atlantic ocean, to become temporary residents of the salty rich waters of the St. Lawrence. These sea mammals include the largest animal on the planet, the blue whale, as well as the impressive humpback, which swim up into the mouth of the Saguenay Fjord near Tadoussac to feed.

More About Tadoussac…

Before the arrival of European settlers Tadoussac was an important centre of trade for the First Nations of the St Lawrence River valley. French trader Samuel de Champlain made the first peace treaty between Europeans and the Montagnais-Naskapi nation in 1603. It became a major centre of the fur trade and — in the 19th century — of lumber and tourism industries. Tadoussac is home to one of the oldest wooden chapels in North America, built in 1647.
