    • Royal Canadian Mounted Police

      Vancouver Jan 23, 2017 at 3:23 PM

      For many years I've wanted to see the Royal Canadian Mounted Police show and I note that they are preforming at the Rotary Club of Kamloops Aurora Centennial and at the Victoria Military Music Society in August. I've googled both of these organisations about the details with zero success. Does anyone please have any info about these events. Many thanks

      glass bridge

      Canada Jan 20, 2017 at 7:20 AM

      I remember seeing that there is a glass bridge in either Jasper or Banif, but I can't recall the details. I had not paid much attention as I did not intend on going that way any time soon, but now I will be going to both this summer and am wondering where it is. Thanks

    • 2 week itinerary for Gaspesie tour

      by jennkmho Online Now Sep 27, 2016 at 8:30 AM


      We are planning a visit to the Gaspesie region next summer - end of Aug/beginning of Sept. If we go in the beginning of September, will everything still be open? We will have our 2 year old son with us so we want to break up the driving into smaller chunks. We would also prefer to spend a few days in one place in Gaspe instead of moving from motel to motel. Can you please comment on this itinerary? Thanks!

      Day 1: Leave from Quebec City. Visit Kamouraska. Stopover for the night in Matane.

      Day 2: Visit Sainte-Anne-de-Monts. Arrive in Gaspé.

      Day 3: Stay in Gaspé. Hiking in Forillon National Park.

      Day 4: Stay in Gaspé. Visit Percé and Bonaventure Island. (Is one day enough time to visit the town of Percé and go out to Bonaventure Island or should I visit Percé one day and go out to Bonaventure Island on a second day?)

      Day 5: Stay in Gaspé. Whale watching (Where near Gaspé is good for whale watching?)

      Day 6: Stay in Gaspé. Beach (Which beaches are recommended?)

      Day 7: Stopover in Chaleur Bay (What is a good town to stay in Chaleur Bay that is about halfway to Rimouski with lodging, restaurants, and beaches? Carleton-sur-Mer or Bonventure?)

      Day 8: Stopover in Rimouski. Visit Bic National Park (Do I need a second day at Bic National Park?)

      Day 9: Arrive in Quebec City

      Day 10: Quebec City

      Day 11: Return home.

      Nice town to stay overnight on west side and east side of Gaspé Peninsula

      by Addison833 Online Now Apr 6, 2016 at 12:16 PM

      My family is planning a road trip in July. We will be starting off with a couple of days in Quebec City, then on to the Gaspé Peninsula; and eventually we'll make our way to PEI to visit friends and then onto les Îles de la Madeleine. The only things we've decided on regarding our time on the Gaspé Peninsula is that we want to spend a couple of nights in the Forillon National Park. But obviously there are other places to see along the way and we're not totally sure where to stop, particularly where we should stay for the night?

      So I'm trying to figure out a few things and I'm hoping you can help!

      1) We'll be leaving Quebec City in the morning and will start our way up the west side of the peninsula. What town/village would be a nice place to stop for the night between Quebec City and Forillon National Park? Is planning to stay somewhere just one night ridiculous, or should we take more time to make our way up to Forillon? Any recommendations for a nice place (or two) to have dinner and spend the night? We'll have a 4 1/2 year old with us if that makes any difference.

      2) Following our two-night stay in Forillon Park, we'll be heading in the general direction of Prince Edward Island. Any suggestions for where to stay on the east side of the peninsula?

      Thanks so much,

    • Travelling from Gaspe to Bathurst in New Brunswick via Bus ?

      by pillai.sivaraman Online Now Jul 6, 2015 at 1:29 PM

      I am travelling to Gaspe airport (YGP) from Toronto (YYZ) via Air Canada. Once I reach Gaspe I intend to travel in a rental car to New Brunswick, PEI, Cape Breton. The whole trip is around 10 days long.
      I checked with the rental car companies and the province of Quebec has per Km pricing and no kms are free.
      Hence I need to move out of Quebec and then rent a car preferably in the province of New Brunswick (Bathurst or Moncton) for the entire trip.
      Can some one please help me in this regard. How do i travel out of Gaspe via a Bus or any other means to Bathurst in New Brunswick ?
      Moreover if someone knows of any rental agency in Gaspe, QC that charges just like in the province of Ontario pls do let me know ?

    • Comfortable amount of time

      by jsmithcamm Online Now Jul 9, 2014 at 10:00 AM

      My husband I are planning to drive around the Gaspe Peninsula, and I am wondering what a comfortable amount of time would be. We have never been before and don't want to miss out on the major attractions, and of course the relaxation. We do not want to rush, but I am looking at about a week. Is that enough time to do it justice? We are planning to go early September.
      Many thanks for your thoughts.

    • Quebec city to Gaspe.

      by billcephalonia Online Now Jul 27, 2012 at 5:38 AM

      My wife and I are in Quebec from the 3rd Oct. through to 31st. October. We will have use of a car but are not young (65 and 50 plus) and have found that whilst driving, I tend to miss the sights. Thinking of a bus from Quebec City to Matane (Daylight hours) maybe a return ferry across to the Jardin Glacier and then onward to Gaspe.

      Any advice on clothes/ weather to be expected and the feasibility of my thinking, re hotels enroute or should I drive?

      I will be traveling up from Virginia, June 19 to 26, and would like to know what is required for me to be able to fish, either in the ocean or rivers of the Gaspe. Also, is tent camping permitted on the beaches or forest in public land, or confined to prescribed camp areas? Are there public camp areas available?

      We are planning a trip to Gaspe in July and will be traveling with a 27ft camping trailer. We would like to know if the roads are in good shape? Also, is it very hilly as this could cause us grief pulling a large trailer? Are there any recommended campgrounds? Thank you.

      I'm planning a summer trip to Quebec for 2004. I live in New Jersey, but I would like to detour through Boston on the way home. Driving, unfortunately, is not an option. While I was looking at ways to get from North East Quebec through NB into Maine, I saw a reference to a ferry going from the Gaspe penninsula to Dalhousie, NB. Has anyone ever taken this ferry? Does it still run in the summer? (I've looked online, but found nothing current.) Any information or alternate suggestions for getting from Gaspe to Boston would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Jen PS-- I know this leg of the trip will probably take a few days, so I'm also open to suggestions on where to take overnight breaks.
