This town sprawls along the Saguenay River just off the St. Lawrence. We witnessed the beauty of the fjords on our way to port and were greeted by dancers, jugglers, etc. Lots of music and fun.
Our guide, Daniel, said that 98% of the population is French speaking, and that he learned English last night because he knew we were coming. Ah, that French sense of humor!
We did a tour called the discovery of New France, which is a living museum that recreates 17th century life in the Quebec province. We also saw the recreation of Huron Village, a rural farm, and tasted traditional foods – cedar tea, salmon, bean salad and potato- typical Huron foods.
Then we went to the Saguenay Fjord museum which showed how the waterway was formed and also saw the Ha!Ha! Pyramid monument created out of more than 3000 traffic yield signs! Ha ha means impass.
Saguenay fjord is one of the 10 largest fjords in the world. Fjord is created by glaciers with high mountains at both sides.
