Road Trip through Quebec Maritime
Road trips are coming back in vogue and places like Quebec Maritime are built for this kind of travel. Quebec Maritime is split into four regions and in just four days we see three of them and cover a lot of ground. Come along as we see everything from the only log cabin in the city of Saint-Gabriel-de-Rimouski and take on the onsite rope course built by the innkeeper. Next, it's time to head to the Hotel Riotel in the Gaspe Peninsula in the city of Mantane. It sits on the banks of the icy St. Lawrence River and is the perfect spot to enjoy a relaxing night in with a pool, hot tub and comfortable and spacious and comfortable rooms. Come morning, there is just enough time to walk through the colorful town and main street area before heading to the port to board the F.A. Gauthier ferry which takes us and our car to the next region on our list, Cote Nord, which means North Cape in English. After a two-hour drive, we arrive to Ferme 5 Ã?toiles, a spot that started as a family farm and later expanded to offer lodging, a dining cabin and activities. Here, we meet with rescued wild animals. Then, we team up with partners to dogsled towards the Saguenay Fjord, which is a national park and makes for some of the most beautiful scenery we have seen so far. And finally we go snowmobiling back towards the Saguenay Fjord to round out the trip.
