Rivier Du Loop to Montreal, sceinic drive

Jump to last reply

We are driving from Nova Scotia to Brockville, Ontario but wondering about the drive from Riviere Du Loop to Trois Rivers for a scenic drive. In particular ,what about either the # 132 on theSouth side or the #138 on the North side of the river from Quebec City to Trois River. Any and all comments and info would be appreciated.
Thanks

    The most scenic route is Hwy 138 and 362 in the Charlevoix along the North Shore to Québec City. Along this route, La Malbaie and Baie-Saint-Paul are very attractive towns, and the views along 362 through Les Éboulements are stunning. From Rivière-du-Loup take the ferry to Saint-Siméon and follow 138/362 past Québec to Trois-Rivières. The latter portion is known as the Chemin du Roy and passes through many historic towns and villages. You can either cross to the south shore by the bridge on Autoroute 55 and continue on 20, or you can continue from Trois-Rivières on Autoroute 40 and take the ferry from Berthierville to Sorel where you will join Autoroute 30.

    In either case, avoid the island of Montréal by taking Autoroute 30 and the new bridge at Valleyfield where it will eventually join 20 west of the island and continue to the Ontario border and Hwy 401.

    If you don't want to cross to the north shore, from Rivière-du-Loup, follow Hwy 132 at least to Levis. You will pass through some very pretty towns such as Kamouraska, St-Jean-Port-Joli, and Montmagny. From Levis you can decide whether to continue on 132 to Autoroute 55 and the bridge to Trois Rivières
    (I'm not familiar with this section), cross to the north shore and take Hwy 138, or simply get on Autoroute 20 and head west from there.
