Conveniently located at the halfway point between downtown Mont-Tremblant and Tremblant resort, Le Grand Lodge Mont-Tremblant captures the best of both Quebec landmarks.

Tadoussac, Quebec

CALL DIRECT: +1 (800) 561 - 0718

VIEW

Just east of Quebec City, our No. 9 pick is one of the region’s most eco-friendly accommodations. At first we were skeptical of Hotel Tadoussac’s green agenda, but when you’ve stumbled upon a location at the mouth of the Saguenay Fjord and overlooking one of the world’s most beautiful bays, you’re right to be a bit protective.

This Quebec luxury resort is literally a stone’s throw from the sea, but why waste time tossing pebbles when you could be partaking in its bounty? Tadoussac is a small town steeped in history and big on preserving the local scenery, which accounts for the excellent whale watching and other ecotourism-related pursuits offered in its old village. Experience the difference even a small Quebec town can make when it chooses to celebrate its surroundings, rather than conquer them. From the humpback, beluga and other gentle giants that inhabit Tadoussac Bay to the windswept dunes that surround it, this is a vacation that is truly untamed. Here on Tadoussac Bay, emerald lawns stretch out along the gently sloping shores, while rugged mountains reach for the clouds that dot a clear blue sky. Add Hotel Tadoussac’s gleaming red roof, pristine white siding and forest green shutters to the mix and you’ve got a Quebec luxury hotel that’s as pretty as a postcard – and infinitely more enjoyable when stayed in during your Canada vacation!
