Honeymoon in Quebec City

Jump to last reply

Okay, my fiancee and I were originally planning a honeymoon to Greece or Italy, but our costs have overrun on our wedding (common thing I hear) and so I figured to cut back on the price of our honeymoon but still visit someplace that feels European.

After much research, I decided that Quebec City is probably the best value for your money as far as getting a bit of Europe without paying those astronomical overseas flight prices.

So today I booked the flight and the hotel.

We are going to Quebec City from July 1 to 6. During our time there, both the Montreal Jazz Fest and the Quebec Music Festival are going on, so we will partake in both.

Right now we don't have a rental car but I think we may need one. We plan to go to Montreal for the Jazz Fest one day (is that doable in a day, it looks to be a 2.5 hour drive, so leave QC at 8, get to Montreal at 10:30, leave Montreal around 6:30 PM, return 9:00PM?) That would give us 8 hours to partake in the festival.

We also want to visit the Jacques Cartier National Park north of Quebec City one day.

I know you can take a train to Montreal, but is there a bus to get to the National Park? I was trying to find one but it seems the park is a bit remote.

Also, would a drive out to Gaspe, Sept-Iles, or Chibougamau be warranted? How far is this? I want to see the rural undeveloped areas. I love to drive and take in the scenery.

I also would like information on the Quebec Festival going on when we'll be there. It appears to be like some kind of Lollapalooza like we have in the states?

Any information is appreciated.
