As we all know all roads lead to Rome. In Canada they often lead to Quebec. The city is located in the center of the province, which is convenient for those who wish to discover the area. This is why Quebec is often part of stops of a trip to Canada. Its territory is huge and it is easy to get lost in it. Therefore, to help you find your way in this big space, I offer some ideas of travel itineraries.

1 – The classic

This is the basic itinerary, the most taken by tourists, like the one that goes through the American West, from San Francisco to San Diego. Last summer with M&M we had tried it in an express version of 6 days. Not the most relaxing but obviously a great trip. In Quebec City I sometimes meet travelers from all around the world and everyone, without exception, performs that route. The bravest venture in Western Canada (Vancouver, Calgary), while others decide to go to the United States (New York, Boston).

On your route you will find among others Le Massif de Charlevoix, national parks (Grands-Jardins,Hautes-Gorges-de-la-Rivière-Malbaie, Bic, Gaspésie, Île-Bonaventure-et-du-Rocher-Percé), cliffs or lakes.

You will then go to Lac Saint-Jean, where you will discover the Trou de la fée cave and the historic village of Val-Jalbert. After yours visits you will take the 169 road towards Quebec. On your way is the National Park of the Jacques-Cartier.
