I had quite the time last week tackling the Via Ferrata set in Fjord-du-Saguenay National Park. Before we get into it, you need to know two things.
First: Saguenay Fjord is not a Canadian national park à la Parks Canada, but a provincial park in Quebec. Don’t ask me why they call it a national park. Perhaps it’s a conspiracy to make anglo journalists look foolish while live tweeting the adventure and tagging the wrong parks agency?
Second: Via Ferrata is not some new fangled Italian charcuterie board or cocktail. ’Tis a kick butt outdoor adventure well suited to anyone who loves the mountains, but perhaps isn’t as fit as they once were, such as yours truly (as previously detailed here).
