Blue whale, humpback whale, beluga whales and back a party of the year the river, where the water is salty. Not since the estuary of the river a few hundred kilometers from Montreal or Quebec City to the Saguenay. Do not say more, we have already devoted two articles to the whale route to Canada.

5. Enjoy a poutine
Did you know that the food is very good in Quebec? Quebecers will tell you, it is especially in this area as their European character says. The fish first: If you like salmon, you are served!
It is found in the “real and wild” in all forms: raw, smoked, steak tartare … The beef is also excellent, and what about that … The Bison bison tartare, is simply delicious.
The word “poutine” has a different meaning in Quebec: it refers to a typical dish of fries sprinkled with cheddar cheese and covered with a sauce. Its exact origin is not unanimous but its taste, though! Go to Quebec without trying poutine, it would be like going to England without touching the fish and chips. Meals end with a sugar pie … or maple syrup, what else?!
