TO QUEBEC, CANADA
15 NIGHTS/7 STOPS
Majestic Lakes, Breath-Taking Landscapes, and Pristine Wildlife.
Helene created a beautifully 15-day family road trip with 7 stops for her husband, their twin boys Edouard and Cedric , and their daughter Julie in August. The purpose of this trip was to discover natural parks, the wildlife and the countless lakes while avoiding touristy paths. They wanted to experience Quebec’s pristine locations and hike in the magnificent surroundings. To compliment their time in the wilderness, their last destination was in Quebec City. Unique locations, road trip, authenticity and minimum comfort were key points when planning this 1,600 km road trip. They stayed an average of two to three nights per location and spent 24 hours on the road in total. Their budget for the whole trip was around $ 1900 per person for 15 nights (excluded food and activities).

GOOD TO KNOW
August is the perfect time to go to Quebec. Weather is usually warm which made swimming in the lakes a lot of fun.
The Quebecois are very nice and helpful people (especially if you speak French with them).
Be mindful and aware of the wildlife and especially the bears and moose in the parks. Don’t forget to keep an eye out but remember to be respectful of their environment!
Be prepared for your hikes with picnics and plenty of water/drinks. Plan to stop at a grocery shops before leaving for a hike or before entering a reserve/national park.
Bring warm clothing as it can be chilly during the evenings.
