Gaspésie, I love you

Touring Gaspésie by car, following a fabled route of some 885 km (550 mi.), leaves no doubt as to why the region is renowned. Jutting into the St. Lawrence as it broadens into a gulf, Gaspésie offers outstanding natural beauty and fascinating wildlife (bird colonies, salmon rivers, etc.) as well as a wide variety of discovery and leisure activities.

At the crossroads of culture, creativity and innovation

Montréal combines a distinctive European charm with North American eclecticism. Celebrating its 375th birthday in 2017, the city is a patchwork of diverse and cosmopolitan districts. Montréal loves fine dining and is always up for a party. From its multicultural roots comes a flair for modernity; no surprise, then, that Montréal has been designated a UNESCO City of Design and is recognized as a leader in the digital arts. All in all, a compelling urban centre!

Montérégie

  • monteregie
Easy getaways close to Montréal

The dominant features of this region dotted with towns, villages and fertile fields are history and food. The Rivière Richelieu that starts in Lake Champlain on the Canada-U.S. border and empties into the St. Lawrence has seen its share of trade, not to mention skirmishes with First Nations and our neighbours to the south. The region has a Cider route that runs the gamut of the local brewers. If wine is more your thing, then the Montérégie Wine route will take you to a number of vineyards. Montérégie boasts the largest number of commercial sugar shacks in Québec: each spring, the rising of the sap signals the start of the feasting.

Côte-Nord

  • region_large_cote-nord
Between earthly and unearthly

The Côte-Nord is actually an amalgamation of two regions: Manicouagan and Duplessis. Running along the St. Lawrence as it turns from estuary to gulf, the coastline here is dotted with lighthouses, whale-watching sites, archipelagos and beaches. But the magic extends far beyond the river: the Côte-Nord is also a prime destination for hunting, fishing, snowmobiling, green spaces, nature and scenery. Indeed, Manicouagan- Uapishka has been designated a UNESCO World Biosphere reserve. The sea mammals of the St. Lawrence River make their lovely dance in this region where everything is grandiose. The dams are oversized, and even the littlest villages astonish by their great beauty.
