  • Hotel Tadoussac deserves to be seen or even spend a night without more. Lunch is good but expensive, it's quiet and an amazing view of the river. There's a bar and a gift shop. Nearby, the boat ride to see the whales; a great trail, a walk in this little landmark that is Tadoussac is worth it.

  • A somehow dreamy spot to just sit and enjoy the beautiful sky and scenery. Check out the cloud that looks like a sky whale! :) Taken while sitting at this location. I actually spent a lot of time here just taking in all the beauty of Tadoussac.
  • Beautiful Chapel!
