Overview of the region : Manicouagan
Visitors to the Manicouagan region will be impressed by its many facets, as varied as they are astounding. With the shore overlooking the magnificent St. Lawrence River, cliffs overhanging the striking Saguenay fjord, saltwater marshes where you can observe 175 bird species, the fish ladder teeming with leaping salmon, not to mention the boreal forest, tundra, rushing rivers and deep lakes of its backcountry… Manicouagan is definitely blessed by nature! This grandiose location, which saw the birth of an electrical empire, is dominated by the largest multiple arch dam in the world, the barrage Daniel-Johnson (Manic-5). This region covers an immense wilderness that is ideal for hiking, camping, scuba diving, sea kayaking, hunting, fishing and snowmobiling.
