We started our tour from Montreal to the Atlantic provinces and we went back by the Quebec

revisiting the places where we enjoyed during the three trips we have made in la belle province.



From New Brunswick, we went directly to gîte du Prince Albert in the

 Gaspésie National Parc


lodging of the Prince Albert

the dining room


We stayed here in 1992. The cottage has been extended and we received a package for 3 days

on half board at an attractive rate. The restaurant is excellent.



Gaspésie National Park






American lake



The Gaspésie Park covers 800 km2 and includes the highest peak of Quebec, the mont Jacques Cartier with

its 1270 m. We wanted to shoot the caribou but between 3 and 6 October 2003, it was forbidden to observe

them because this is the breeding season. We went to American Lake, a glacial lake surprising

at this latitude. We shot several moose from a platform along a path. The office guides

provides information about the places where you can observe wild animals.


After the lodging of Mount Albert, we joined the St. Lawrence River and we stopped at Cap Chat for

visiting a site of wind turbine with the largest of the world in 2003.




Cap Chat and Wind Turbines






The day we visited, the world's largest wind turbine

was not in service.


After spending the night in Rimouski, we went into the Bic Park, along the Saint Lawrence river.




the Bic Park






When we visited the Bic park in 1992, we stayed at the "Mange Grenouille", a great place to the restaurant.


On the way, we stopped in Montmagny to recover the jet lag and we went back to

observe the migration of snow geese.




snow geese in Montmagny



Each year, hundreds of thousands of snow geese stop in Montmagny before joining their

place of migrating to the United States during the winter. We found that observing the geese were

better here than at  Cape Tourmente on the opposite bank of the St. Lawrence River. We then took the road to

Levis and took the ferry to arrive in Quebec City.




Shuttle Ferries are constantly crossing between the cities

of Lévis and Québec


We stayed in the great alley at the hotel Loews Le Concorde to enjoy the revolving restaurant





Quebec City





Discover the Château Frontenac with the Saint Lawrence

River from the revolving restaurant L'Astral is a pure wonder.

In the 1960s, the markets had disappeared to Quebec.

This old harbor market has reopened in 1987.

There is now a enthusiasm for markets.

They appreciate the products of the farm and they love the

 contact with the producer.




The Red Leaves



Late September, early October is the period of red leaves in the forests of Quebec. We

visited the  Mauricie National Park to observe the phenomenon and the beauty of this park.

This is undoubtedly at  Bouchard lake we observed the

most beautiful red leaves in Quebec. the

painters must have the same opinion as us.

The road along the Wapizagonke lake to 16 km



Mont Tremblant village












The village of Mont Tremblant is the winter sports resort most famous in Quebec.

It is managed by the same promoter as Whistler in British Columbia, a little Disneyland.

The altitude is 875 m above the tracks.

A highway connects in less than two hours Montreal to Mont Tremblant.

This is the place for relaxation for Montrealers. We borrowed it to get to Montreal's Dorval airport.

The village we made an excursion to top of the tracks and another in the Parc du Mont Tremblant.





Mont Tremblant Provincial Park
