Stunning scenery and Québécois cuisine draws adventurers and foodies alike

Word of Mouth"I would certainly try the Charlevoix lamb and don't miss the wonderful cheeses from the region," recommends Fodorite laverendrye.

Why Go NowA new train route linking Quebec City to the villages in pastoral Charlevoix makes it easier than ever to experience the region’s topnotch farm-to-table cuisine, breathtaking scenery (the area was designated a World Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 1989 and encompasses two national parks), and outdoor sports like kayaking in the St. Lawrence River and hiking in the foothills of Le Massif.

Where to StayBy spring, the new 150-room Hotel La Ferme will give the palatial Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu a run for its money. See more hotel reviews outside of Quebec City.

Insider TipDine at Le Mouton Noir in Baie Saint Paul for an excellent sampling of locally sourced fare.

When to GoTravel in summer for hiking and boating; go in winter for skiing.
