Saint-Fulgence

Saint-Fulgence, on the Route du Fjord and in the “biodiversity valley,” has the privilege of having a rich natural environment and a few unusual characteristics. A recognized relay village, it offers ecotourism, agritourism, and culture. Be sure to see a play put on by the La maison coupée en deux summer theatre, whose stage is the cross-section of a house! L’Anse-aux-Foins (hay cove), thus named in 1839, has a sandbar that marks the beginning of the Saguenay Fjord. Many anglers and kitesurfers are drawn to this location.

Saint-Fulgence’s tidal flats are a paradise for birdwatchers. The Sentier des battures trail and its educational panels provide a wealth of information on the bird species found there. Paraglider enthusiasts leap from Cap des Roches with wild abandon. It’s quite a sight! The Cap Jaseux adventure park welcomes lovers of the great outdoors, kayakers, anglers, and campers. Families enjoy its non-traditional accom­modations, via ferrata course, and Fjord High Ropes treetop adventure. Saint-Fulgence is the gateway to Parc national des Monts-Valin and the Martin-Valin fishing and outdoor adventure site in a controlled harvesting zone.
