Quebec

Explore Canada’s largest province on a fascinating journey from Gallic cities Montreal and Quebec City to spectacular national parks and shorelines filled with wildlife.

Quebec may be famous for its French-Canadian cities and cuisine, but less well-known is the stunning scenery in 28 national parks and some of the best whale-watching in the country.

Begin your tour in multicultural Montreal, taking in majestic churches, an attractive old town and delicious cuisine. Then pick up your hire care and head to the historic streets of Quebec City, the only walled city in North America and overlooked by Château Frontenac, one of the world’s most photographed hotels.

Beyond Quebec’s cities, explore the province’s wild terrain by heading north-east through Bas-Saint-Laurent to the Gaspé Peninsula, a region of rocky coastline, dramatic seascapes, forests and mountains, and haven for birdwatching and whale-watching.

Take a boat trip to iconic Percé Rock, a huge monolith pierced with a hole sculpted by the sea, then go bird-watching on Bonaventure Island, inhabited by the world’s largest colony of northern gannets. Next, it’s time to explore the spectacular landscapes Gaspésie National Park with 25 forested peaks over 1,000m and forests inhabited by caribou, moose and black bears.

Cross the St. Lawrence River to Côte Nord and Saguenay-St-Lawrence Marine Park, one of Canada’s premier destinations for whale-watching with some 13 species. Cruise down the Saguenay Fjord, which flows 100km from the vast Lake Saint Jean through spellbinding scenery to the St Lawrence River, where pods of whales gather.

Then head south for some indulgent food and drink in Charlevoix, a region famous for its Flavour Trail that hugs the coast from Baie-Saint-Paul to La Malbaie. Inland, discover dramatic scenery of high rock faces, deep gorges and waterfalls in Hautes-Gorges-de-la-Rivière-Malbaie National Park.

Finally, explore the forests and lakes of Mauricie region in Mastigouche Wildlife Reserve and Mauricie National Park. If you have time, discover the idyllic rivers, lakes, forested peaks, waterfalls and beaches of Mont Tremblant before finishing your tour in Montreal or Quebec City.

Our expert's opinion

“Quebec’s scenery may not be as famous as that of British Columbia or Alaska but it is a truly stunning province. The highlight has to be the breathtaking Saguenay Fjord and for me it was a big bonus to go whale-watching in calm waters rather than braving the tempestuous Atlantic. ”
