L’Anse-de-Roche is a window carved into the Saguenay Mountains known for its dramatic sunsets. At this small leisure port, visitors can discover not only the Saguenay in all its splendour, but also its inhabitants that go up and down the fjord on a daily basis: belugas.
What they’re saying: “The heavy fog over the St. Lawrence had crushed our hopes of seeing any whales that day. But here, on the Saguenay, the weather was clear and we were lucky to see a group of belugas!”
Getting there: Route 172 North. Pass through the village of Sacré-Cœur, heading toward Chicoutimi. 3 km past Sacré-Cœur, turn left at the sign for Anse de Roche. Follow the road 5 km until you arrive at the wharf and marina.
