Quebec road trip excluding Montreal and Quebec City -- suggestions?

Jump to last reply

Hello everyone,

I have about three and a half days in Quebec in June. Have been before, so looking for something a little different this time. Traveling with a friend and we're thinking about an extended weekend road trip to anywhere from Montreal excluding Quebec City--can anyone suggest places we can visit? We've thought about the Laurentiens and the Cantons de l'Est but nothing more specific. We're also open to suggestions on other destinations. Neither one of us have any preferences for the sort of things to experience... scenery, hiking, old towns, quirky things, we're pretty open. Had initially thought of Gaspe a 10-hour drive seems a bit overkill for a relatively short trip, unless there are places to visit near the base of the peninsula? Three to four hour drives if needed is fine! Would be fun to stop in random places along the way. Our French is conversational so rural is fine too!

Thank you!!

    We have been to the Eastern Townships many times. The biggest draw for us is the road biking, and the wineries. The Magog-Orford area is mountainous and scenic. Magog is a small lakeside resort town with a nice beach and lakeside prominade. Some fun places to dine in town. Mt Orford park is great for hiking and bicycling. Nearby is Saint-Benoît-du-Lac Abbey, an extremely picturesque Abbey complex on Lake Memphramagog.
    Further west is Bromont, a bustling, outdoorsy ski town with hiking and great bicycling on a 20 mile paved trail. Just to the south is Quebec's wine country, with several picturesque wineries and cideries. This part of the townships is quite flat and rural, with some world class road biking opportunities, both on dedicated trails and on the quiet back roads.
    Another extremely scenic and unique part of Quebec is the Charlevoix
    district, which is northeast of Quebec City. Lots of hiking opportunities, whale watching and beautiful drives along the St. Lawrence. The Sagueny fjord is a hiking and kayaking mecca. Baie St Paul is an artsy little town with plenty of places to eat and shop.
