Need help planning a trip from East Coast to Montreal

Jump to last reply

Next year in August, I will be over from Europe and driving with my family from Boston to Montreal. We have 10 days to do it.
Since this is probably our only chance to visit this area of N-America and Canada, we don't mind to do a lot of driving, as long as we can see some real highlights, things we don't get to see/do in Europe. Spotting whales and bears rank very high on the priority list of our two teenage girls.

I was thinking we could do the following:
Day 1: Drive North from Boston and sleep in a small town or near the coast in Maine
Day 2: Drive further North, cross Canadian border at Calais and take ferry from St John to Digby Neck
Day 3: Stay at Digby Neck/Brier Island
Day 4: Take a whale watching cruise from Digby Neck/Brier Island
Day 5: Take ferry back to St John - drive in the direction of Québec City, sleep somewhere nice halfway
Day 6: visit Québec City
Day 7: visit Québec City
Day 8: Drive up to Nature Reserve des Laurentides, go bear-watching
Day 9: Drive to Montreal
Since we have in fact 10 days for the trip, that would leave one additional day we could spend in Maine, or Nova Scotia, or North of Québec.

I would love to get feedback on (a) Trajectory. What is the best combination of whale watching - bear watching - nice outdoors areas and cities, all in 10 days (b) Places to stay the night, preferably a bit out-of-the-way. We don't have a big budget, and we like typical, but not very crowded or touristy places... Many thanks for helping us plan this once-in-a-lifetime trip!
