Two majestic waterways characterize the Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean region: the Saguenay Fjord, the only inhabited fjord in North America, and Lac Saint-Jean, a true inland sea. In our region, water and cycling go hand in hand. Several marine shuttle options are conveniently available along the length of the course.
Accessible via the Dam-en-Terre Resort and Avenue du Pont Nord, close to Odyssée des Bâtisseurs. Crossing the Rivière Grande Décharge takes about five minutes and is free of charge for all cyclists.* No reservation required.
The Centre de Villégiature la Dam-en-Terre (a resort also accessible from Île Maligne via Le Maligneau bicycle crossing) offers passage on the boat, La Tournée, to Roberval on specific Sundays during the summer. A one-way cruise between Alma and Roberval takes 2.5 hours. Cyclists are welcome on board for travelling by boat and returning via the Véloroute des Bleuets. Bicycles can be transported on board free of charge.
