Travel the scenic back roads of Quebec as you drive through some of the most beautiful regions of these seldom visited parts of the province.
Quebec, a province where its unique history mixes the Old World with the New, is filled with beautiful parks, mountains, and wilderness. This trek will transport you to magnificent open spaces offering exceptional landscapes of ridges, valleys, glaciers, fjords, rivers, lakes and boreal forests.
The Charlevoix region, where majestic massifs dip into the St Lawrence River, will astound you with its unique vegetation. The Grands Jardins Park is covered with taiga forests, trees that are normally only found in the Quebecois Great North. Perhaps we’ll even be able to spot black bears and moose who call this wooded wilderness home. We’ll explore the Jacques-Cartier Valley, winding through the Charlevoix Mountains and the Monts-Valins massif, visiting the Saguenay Fjord. In Tadoussac, the fresh watered fjords collide with the salted estuaries, creating a krill rich environment and an ideal place to go whale watching. It’s possible to see a variety of wildlife in this region including 12 different species of whales, like belugas, blue whales, and humpbacks. The forests and lakes also offer home to beavers, bears and black bears.
Your journey then continues with stops along the way at charming and picturesque villages, famous for their art galleries, spectacular views, or ancient history as a former trading post. The adventure would not be complete without visiting Montreal and Quebec City! Quebec City, a UNESCO World Heritage site, is the only fortified city in North America.
This excursion is a fabulous journey in the heart of the Quebec wilderness, and a chance to be welcomed by the famously warm and friendly Quebecois!
