The cavern itself is quite interesting but it's a good trek to get there. Taking the "recommended" trail back was quite challenging at times. It had rained just before we got there... at one point we were walking up a creek bed with slippery rocks......More

Visiting the Lac Saint-Jean with family leaving in the Saguenay, they invited us there. From the induction at the welcome office, good presentation of the trails including the “trou de la fée”! All and all we have spent couple of hours on easy trails –...More

Although the trails are nice here, and we did enjoy the walks, I would say overall we didn't have a great experience here. Started with a very long (30 minute) line up run by teenagers who didn't tell us until we got to the head...More

Great visit off the beaten path. 1 h approx from Chicoutimi and the visit will take 3 h for the paths and caves. The caves are a must see and the paths are breathtaking along the river great family activity

Very nice set up, but it includes a fair amount of walking in rough terrain. Not recommended for very young kids. Not accessible with wheelchair or stroller. The cave expedition is interesting (although short in length, and the visit takes no more than 20 minutes),...More

Our family enjoyed the visit to the cavern and the trails that hug and cross over the raging river and falls. I was particularly struck by the immense volume and velocity of the river and the crashing of the falls which you get to experience...More

We went there expecting a proper trail to get to the cave. Unfortunately this is not the case. The site is poorly maintained and I am sure they have loads of accidents (twisted ankles and the like). Do not get me wrong, we go for...More

After a great day at the Zoo Sauvage in St. Felicien, we visted Trou de la Fée (which means hole of the fey or hole of the fairies). For the outdoor enthusiast who is vigorous enough to handle lots of stairs and steep slopes and...More

The hike is better than the cave, IMHO. You hike really close to a waterfall so amazingly powerful that I'm surprised and happy it wasn't transformed into a major hydroelectric facility. Along the way you can see people zip lining from way high on the...More
