Have you ever vanpacked to the Saguenay Fjord? But what are you waiting for? Discover it quickly with Fjord en Kayak!
When we arrive at the Fjord, we want to be as close as possible to nature. This feeling of immensity makes you want to hike, stroll, or go out on the water. So we looked for the dream place … and we admit it, Anse St Jean, is a real crush. In addition, we met Myriam, the new owner of Fjord en Kayak, a young entrepreneur, mother of two children, who took over the reins of this great company. It offers all kinds of outdoor activities to discover the Fjord more closely!
Psst .. if you are a Vanpacker, read this article to the end, you will discover a surprise!
In this small village,Fjord en Kayak offers all kinds of activities for young and old. During our 3-hour excursion with other vanpackers, we were immediately put at ease by our guide, who fascinated us with his anecdotes on the fauna, flora, and the history of this wonderful place! We started by going around the Anse St-Jean before going to the Fjord. With our sea kayaks, equipped with directional pedals, it’s easy to navigate the waves. Their ultra light material also allows a real feeling of speed and ease of handling. In short, we loved the experience!
But Fjord en Kayakalso organizes excursions of 2 to 4 days for more experienced adventurers, all in a concern of respect for nature, dear to the company. It has also received numerous accreditations for its ecotourism practices. You can enjoy tasty fresh meals, with locally sourced foods (we keep you the surprise of the menu, but it is tempting)! It is also possible to rent bicycles or paddles. Something to satisfy most, right? In any case, at Le Baroudeur, we approve!
We will not miss to recommend you to stop off at Café du Quai, a Breton creperie (yes!) located just above, or at Bistro de l’Anse, built in 1860, where you can experience the atmosphere that reigns in this village while tasting a beer from the micro-brewery La Chasse Pinte … delicious! As a bonus, we will surely guide you on the local places to sleep peacefully in your van!
