Saguenay, The Fjord

The Saguenay Fjord is one of the ten longest fjords in the world with a massive 126 km long glacial valley and rocky cliffs over 350 m high. It's the only inhabited fjord in North America and has villages that are classified as among the Most Beautiful Villages in Québec. It's ranked by the Michelin Guide as one of the must-see attractions worldwide alongside the Eiffel Tower and pyramids in Egypt. The Saguenay Fjord is worth the trip in itself!
