You can’t be bored while visiting the lower-Saguenay region.
We are located at the entrance of the Fjord-du-Saguenay Park and very close to two extraordinary sites: Éternité Bay and Cape Éternité. Artistes and sailors have been coming to visit Rivière-Éternité for the past two centuries. Cruise passengers are charmed by our panoramas and our Via Ferrata; so are outdoor lovers, campers, fishing aficionados, short and long trails hikers, kayakers and climbers.
The Notre-Dame-du-Saguenay statue is one of our national monuments. The Notre-Dame-Kapatakan (the little Compostelle) 215 km-long hiking trail, starts at Rivière-Éternité.
Winter activities are varied. You can experience ice-fishing, go skiing or snow-shoeing, hiking or discover our many snowmobile trails.
Visit the Artists Park or climb up to the giant crib and the statue of the Nativity right in the village.
In October, there is a Contemporary Arts Symposium that you will not want to miss. There is also the ” Chasse aux Panaches” one of the largest hunters meeting in the Saguenay-Lac-St-Jean region.
