Full-Scale Nature in Québec

Québec is home to 8,275 lakes that exceed 3 km2 (1.16 sq. mi.) in size, and  a marine park with a very rich ecosystem. From May til October, 13 species of whales swim in the waters of the estuary and the gulf of the St. Lawrence River! Here, nature seduces, attracts and amazes. Behind its full scale are hidden small marvels that add to its pure beauty. Whether you are looking at the majestic Saguenay fjord or admiring the gigantic Percé rock, you will be amazed by the beauty and the immensity of our natural heritage.
