A drive through Saguenay and the Chicoutimi region will take in the main highlights passing by the Little White House, that miraculously survived floods of 1996, and the Pulp Mill that played an important part in the regions industry.
Afterwards, your drive will take you into the beautiful countryside and through the Lac St Jean region to the Val-Jalbert Historical Village. Dominated by the majestic beauty of the 220 foot high Ouiatchouan Falls, Val-Jalbert was man-made in 1901 to accommodate the pulp mill workers. The village gradually became a ghost town following the closure of the mill and today has been restored for visitors to experience life as it was in the village in the 1920s.
Upon arrival, you’ll take a guided trolley tour through the village and you’ll meet costumed characters along the way which will bring the history of Val-Jalbert to life. Afterwards, you’ll have around 2½ hours to explore Val Jabert at your own leisure and purchase some luncheon from the on-site café. One of the highlights of the Val-Jabert is the sight of the impressive Ouiatchouan Falls, which can be seen from several viewpoints surrounding the village.
On the return drive, sit back and enjoy the scenery once more, before arriving back at the ship.
