Montreal - Eastern Townships - Quebec City

Jump to last reply

We're planning a week long trip to Montreal and Quebec City in early September. Would also like to spend some time touring the Eastern Townships. Looking for suggestions for places to stay and how long to stay in each area.

    The Eastern Townships are beautiful, and there is a lot to do - wineries, bicycling, hiking, etc. In the southwestern corner of this area is wine country. Dunham is the center of this area. There are about a dozen wineries you can visit, and there is a wine trial you can follow. This area is also apple country, and I believe there are apple and wine related events in September. On the far eastern end of the townships is Magog, a very pleasant lakeside resort town with some good restaurants, and plenty of b&b's, condos, and hotels. There are also charming little ski towns like Sutton. Perhaps the biggest attraction of the Eastern Townships is the amazing network of bicycle trails. Many of them are flat, paved old railroad beds that linkup small towns. Granby is possibly the best town for a biking visit, but there are trails throughout all of Quebec.
    Go to the bonjourquebec.com website for more info, and try to get their free guidebooks on Montreal, Quebec City, and the Eastern Townships.
    As far as how much time for each, with a week it will be tough. Perhaps 3 nights Montreal, 2 Quebec City, and the rest in the countryside. If i were to choose one town to spend a few nights in, it would be Magog.
