Your day-by-day itinerary
Arrival in Tadoussac
Tadoussac is a small fishing village, renowned for being in the top 50 most beautiful bays in the world, and one of the best whale-watching sites. You’ll stay in the centre of the village, just a 5-minute walk from the beach and ferry terminal. After you’ve settled into your hotel, the rest of today is yours to explore the village. You can visit the marine centre that gives you excellent information on the local marine life. There are also four different hiking paths that take you around the village, giving you the best chance of spying whales off the shore.
Whale Watching Trip
Today you’ll wake bright and early as it’s time for your whale watching adventure to begin! You’ll be provided with waterproofs and lifejackets then head out into the sea by Zodiac, a large rubber boat, in search of the whales in the area. St Lawrence river is one of the best places in the world for whale watching, due to its rich waters, high production of phytoplankton and the fact that 13 species of whale can be found here!
After the 2-hour trip is up, you’ll head back to shore. You can enjoy a coffee at the local café, and if you still have energy in the afternoon, you can make a trip to the Sand Dunes of Tadoussac, which is an ideal place for a walk on the beach along the fjord.
Today it’s time to leave Tadoussac, and head onto your next destination. From here, why not head to Riviere-Du-Loup for a special overnight stay in an 18th-century lighthouse, or take a trip to Quebec City on a gourmet food walking tour.
