Renowned as a whale watching destination, tourists flock here to enjoy the surrounding wilderness, with several federal and provincial parks close by protecting the area’s natural resources.
A central focus of this town of fewer than 1000 residents is the imposing red roof of the Hotel Tacoussac built in the 1940s on the site of a previous hotel. It sits majestically between the sandy beach lining the shore of Tadoussac Bay and the tree covered hills behind it. Photographers will find great spots for photography around the Port area. The Tadoussac chapel facing the bay is the oldest wooden church still standing in Canada. If you’re visiting in June, the Festival de la Chanson transforms Tadoussac into a cultural capital with a huge lineup of Francophone activites and shows amid a family-like atmosphere.
