An extraordinary water way that opens up the continent, set in a landscape formed by glaciers, the Saint Lawrence River proposes picturesque fishing villages, urban environments, the spectacular Saguenay Fjord, mysterious islands, imposing cliffs and rustic landscapes. Fed by the Great Lakes, this majestic river flows eastward for over 1200 km along the shores of Montreal, Trois-Rivieres and Quebec City. From there, the Saint Lawrence widens to form the largest and deepest estuary in the world. In the bay of Tadoussac, salt and freshwater meet to create an ecosystem conducive to marine life. This exceptional site, where whales and other marine mammals live, is protected by the Saguenay-Saint Lawrence Marine Park. Downstream the estuary widens to form a gigantic gulf that holds the North shore (Havre-Saint-Pierre, Sept-Iles, Baie-Comeau) and Anticosti Island, and to the south, Gaspesie and the Iles de la Madeleine.
