    • 2 week itinerary for Gaspesie tour

      Gaspé 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.

    • Montreal alternatives

      by ArtiStreet Online Now Jun 12, 2006 at 8:43 PM

      We are planning a trip to Montreal but can,t find a suitable hotel in Montreal for the first week of the vacation as the Grand Prix is in town. So we are looking at splitting the vacation and spending 4 days in some town and then 4 days in montreal. I heard about La Malbaie and thought that might be a good offset to the faster pace of Montreal. Does anyone have any ideas about La Malbaie or any other town in which to split the vacation. Anyone ever been to the Fairmont Richelieu in La Malbaie? It is really expensive. Wonder if it worth the price. Appreciate yor comments.
