Thousands of years of natural hospitality. Set a course for Tadoussac- a picturesque village standing at the edge of the boreal forest near the Saguenay fjord and a stones throw from the sea. Tadoussac was a major trade area for aboriginal people; a whale and beluga hunting ground; a safe harbor for explorers Cartier and Champlain; and a vacation resort as early as 1864. The Tadoussac Hotel with its whitewashed walls; maritime colors; red roof; dormer windows;and cupola marking the centre of the building calls to mind an enormous lighthouse standing not quite a cables length from the magnificent sandy beach nearby. The hotels silhouette is like a beacon, for generations navigators have been using it as a Landmark when piloting their vessels in the St. Lawrence. The buildings architecture testifies to the close bond between Tadoussac and the sea. As you look out from the hotel terrace, you will see an ocean of green; marsh hay; sails; boats; sea foam; and in the distance, whales.
