Luxury yurts above the Saguenay Fjord

Luxury yurts above the Saguenay Fjord


A glamping stay directly on the cliffs of the Saguenay Fjord, near Tadoussac? This is possible in the comfortable yurts of the Alfred site next to Oscar, located away from the village of Sacré-Coeur, on the North Shore.

Alfred the neighbor of Oscar is a unique place. It sits squarely above Parc national du Fjord-du-Saguenay, at the entrance to the North Shore, on a peaceful family farm whose views of the fjord are truly hard to beat!

In all, the site has 4 fully equipped and carefully decorated yurts, installed on the rocks, away from each other. They are designed to accommodate four people. 

Big plus: each unit has a roof with a transparent dome that brings in the sun during the day, and which allows you to admire the stars at night.

Inside, there is an open area with wood floor, dining table, armchairs, wood stove, kitchenette with propane fridge and closed bathroom (shower with hot water and dry toilet). There are also two sleeping areas, one of which is on a small mezzanine, and bedding is included.

On the rocks, outside the houses, you are treated to a bbq, a small table and a fireplace, as well as incredible sunsets over the Saguenay River. 

We can even hope to see belugas in the distance during the summer months! 

Oscar's neighbor Alfred was born in 2014. So it's nothing new in the glamping landscape in Quebec, but you really feel like you're discovering a little hidden treasure when you go there!&nbsp ;
