Quebec City is one of those places you can spend a long time exploring and still never see the hidden gems. We’ve put together some of our favourite off the map places to see in Quebec.
1. Explore the Fjords in Parc National du Fjord du Saguenay. They run for 105 km at the mouth of the Saguenay River. If you decide to visit in the winter, bring your snowshoes!
2. If you love to drive the coastline the Mingan Archipelago National Park is a must. Between the wildlife (Puffins!) and the limestone pinnacles it won’t disappoint.
3. The almost 250 km stretch between Montreal and Quebec city boasts some of the most scenic landscapes which are littered with river’s, lakes, cheese makers and let’s not forget the wineries.
4. Forillan National Park on the Gaspe Peninsula provides a unique coastal experience to discover and explore. Keep your eyes open for whale watching and hidden beaches.
