Hiking near Quebec City?

Jump to last reply

We are just starting to plan a trip to Quebec City for about a week in early September. We may fly into Burlington VT and drive from there or fly right into Canada from Chicago. It looks like it is cheaper to go through VT, although we may be able to use some frequent flyer miles.

We plan to rent a car, not sure if that is an issue bringing it into Canada.

We would like to spend about 3 nights in Quebec City and spend the rest of the time in a more rural setting. We are in our 50s and like hiking, good restaurants, and nice accommodations. Not looking for a lot of shopping other than what we'll do in the city and we don't golf.

It looks like the Charlevoix region is closest to Quebec City, so if we fly in and out of there, that will probably be the "rural" part of the trip. Or, if we go in and out of VT, perhaps we'll spend a few days there instead.

We've never been to either place, so any advice is appreciated.
