The unique region of southern Quebec is a mix of quiet village, coastal communities and urban centres with many opportunities for adventure. Known for its French heritage the population of the province is widely French speaking but may people speak English as well, particularly in and around the major cities of Montreal and Quebec City. Local inns offer a variety of summer and winter adventures including horse back riding, hiking, dogsledding, snowmobiling and fishing.
The Rouge River west of Montreal has excellent white water rafting opportunities and rivers such as the Coulonge and Dumoine offer ideal whitewater canoeing conditions for the beginner to the more experienced paddler. The Eastern Townships east of Montreal are known for their excellent cycling routes and you can pedal through quiet back roads and picturesque villages and enjoy the local French culture and cuisine.
The Gaspe region (Gaspesie) is located on the eastern tip of the province of Quebec and is considered one of the most scenic areas in the province. The rivers in the Gaspe region are known for their trophy Atlantic Salmon fishing and local inns and lodges are available for you to try your luck and catching the big one. This region is also home to the Bonaventure River, often said to be the prettiest canoeing river in Quebec. Guided tours on this river will take you through some of the beautiful landscape in eastern Canada.
