Saguenay-Lac-St-Jean is a region in Quebec, a province of Canada.


Saguenay-Lac-St-Jean is divided into three regions: Saguenay, Lac-St-Jean and Chibougameau-Chapais.

  • Saguenay
  • Lac-St-Jean
  • Chibougameau-Chapais


Other destinations



Many people in Saguenay-Lac-St-Jean only speak French. It's also important to note they speak French with an accent that might sound strange, even for other people from Québec. If you only speak English, you might encounter problems as you visit this area. Otherwise, most of this is true: Quebec#Talk


It's well known around Québec that people from the area use expressions you might not have heard before. Here is a few of them (in French, naturally.)

  • Faire simple - Being silly.

Get in

You're most likely to arrive to Saguenay-Lac-St-Jean by land. If you're coming fom Quebec City, you will cross the Parc des Laurentides on provincial road 175. This road is about 200 km long between Québec City and Chicoutimi and there is but one gas station (known as l'Étape) in the middle so plan ahead.

If you come from Chibougameau-Chapais or Abitibi-Témiscamingue, you will arrive by road.

There is also a few airports in the area. None of them are international airports, but if you're coming from somewhere else in Canada, you might arrive at one of them. The main one is Bagotville in Ville de La Baie (now part of Ville Saguenay). There is also one in St-Honoré-de-Chicoutimi.

Get around

A car will be required to drive around the area. Some cities in the area have bus systems, but most of them don't.

Saguenay-Lac-St-Jean has a big territory so be ready to drive long distances.



Here are a few things you might want to do. Please fill free to describe them or to add more activities or places to visit.
