Most parents looking for incredible family adventure destinations in Canada immediately gravitate to the west coast. Areas like Banff, Whistler and Canmore hog the spotlight for the kind of soft-adventure experiences that many outdoor-loving families crave. But there is a region in Quebec that seems almost built for outdoor adventure. If you love kayaking, tree-top trekking, rock climbing or mountain biking, Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean is perfect for you.
The Saguenay Fjord is surrounded by the Parc national du Fjord-du-Saguenay. The land surrounding this picturesque fjord is nearly all protected. This makes for absolutely gorgeous scenery filled with vast forests and towering cliffs. The landscape is dotted with quaint Francophone towns where coffee and cheese are taken almost as seriously as cycling and hiking. Here are a few of the top adventure activities in the Saguenay region.
