Winter Paddling east of Quebec City

Im going to be up east of Quebec City for work and going to have a couple of days off. I’m a capable winter paddler but don’t know the area well. I’ve found an outfitter who I’m going to contact but organized paddles with outfitters can be pretty sedentary and I can easily bring my own boat (providing it’s not too big a hassle at the border) and kit so if there are recommendations for launch and routes that would be great.


Anywhere along the St Lawrance is nice
Never been there in the winter but late spring it is nice

Saguenay Fjord, QC
Can’t beat the Saguenay Fjord / Tadoussac area. A little early for the big whales to be in, but the Belugas in the fjord around Baie St. Marguerite will be in… I don’t think they leave the area. incredibly beautiful paddle.
