A caribou at Zoo Sauvage de St. Felicien

One of the many delicious desserts while on our trip. Other highlights included our meal at Auberge Pachon, Hotel Universel in Alma (pictured above) and of course the boundless blueberry tarts, chocolates, and sauces.

spooooooky. A real ghost town located in Val-Jalbert. We slept the night in this abandoned town; need we say our night was a touch scary, though the newly refurbished rooms are quite calming.

An adorable sheep with little lambs at l'Orée des Champs

Microbrasserie du lac- wonderful beer. We also enjoy lovely cheese from Medard, and amazing honey wine from Miel des Ruisseaux

Olivier pours a cocktail at Hotel de cepal. Both Eric and Olivier were fantastically hospitable during our dinner and breakfast; great guys.

Chef Marcel Bouchard, a Quebec sensation and fine chef. We enjoyed a personal lesson for smoked trout with beurre blanc and roasted beets. This chef is an absolute teddy bear and lovely man.

A spectacular performance at Nouvelle France. The show featured many animals including Farfelou (the sheepdog) and very well trained horses. The acrobatics, juggling and skill of the performers was astounding and very entertaining.

Baie St. Catherine; a whale watching mecca. On our whale excursion, we were fortunate to see Minky whales, Humpbacks and even a beluga.

One of the most fun ways to explore the mountains; dune buggy. Jerome from Horizon Evasion took us on the backroads for some truly glorious views.

The beautiful flora from the Fjord de L'Anse St. Jean.

The view from the Fjord; stunning.

On our week long journey to the East of Canada, we experienced the beauty of Quebec's Saguenay/ Lac St. Jean region. Charming Auberges, delectible cuisine, amazingly warm and friendly people made this trip absolutely unforgettable. The unspoiled nature in this part of Canada is awe-inspiring, and the smell of pine and fresh lakes still permeates. We can't wait for a return trip.

Look for the article in the Spring 2011 issue of City Style and Living magazine. Don't miss it!
