The participants of tours 1 to 6 will all start their day of adventure together. They will be transported to La Baie by bus (20 minutes) and board the Croisieres du Fjord cruise boat. This marine shuttle which operates a regularly scheduled hop-on hop-off style service during the months of July and August, will travel along the Saguenay Fjord and drop participants off at each of their tour destinations. This is an ideal way for everyone to meet and do a little networking while enjoying the incredible beauty of the Saguenay Fjord. The return trip will be done by bus.
The participants of tours 7 to 10 will be transported by bus to their destinations. Tours 8, 9, and 10 take place in the Lake Saint-Jean sector of the region. The lake is one of the largest in Quebec measuring 42 km in length. This sector is best known for its warm sandy beaches, vast fields of wild blueberries and for its exciting array of cultural and adventure travel attractions. Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean photos.
