Just like in days past, small Quebec shops and boutiques line the streets in Tadoussac. Locally-produced handicrafts, beautiful works of art, jewellery and regional food specialties are all available. The village also has a number of small restaurants for all tastes and budgets.
Other attractions in the Village:
Marine Mammal Interpretation Centre (CIMM)
Learn about the whales that live in the St. Lawrence River. Naturalists from the Group for Research and Education on Marine Mammals (GREMM) share their knowledge on whale behaviour, reproduction, feeding habits and migration.
Visit the CIMM website: www.gremm.org
Maison des Dunes - Moulin Baude
The marine terrace interpretation centre will take you through the history of the area's unique geography.
Chauvin Fur Trading Post
William Hugh Coverdale, avid ethnographer and former owner of Hôtel Tadoussac, had a replica of the first French settlement building, dating back to 1600, constructed next to the hotel. Learn about the history of the Aboriginal people. Relive the meeting between the Montagnais and Europeans, as well as the widespread trade of furs and animal oil, a common fuel at the time.
Also known as the "Indians' Chapel" because it was built by Jesuit missionaries in their effort to convert the Montagnais to Christianity. Located near Hôtel Tadoussac, this chapel is the oldest wooden church in Canada and still has some of the original religious items used when the chapel was first constructed over two and a half centuries ago.
