A Room With Many Views - Discover Incredible Quebec

Every day is an adventure when you’re exploring the fascinating province of Quebec.

What if you could wake up to a different view every single day?

And what if that view was brand new…and a complete surprise?

That’s precisely what happened to this traveling couple. Glennis and Kip visited Quebec on a one-of-a-kind adventure. Transported in a mobile room, they traveled on a remarkable journey across the province, waking up to a new view every morning. Each day, they were greeted by the extraordinary scenery of wondrous Quebec.

Watch their adventure in the film, A Room With Many Views, and prepare to be amazed.

 

While being transported via helicopter, train, and boat in a portable room isn’t the most practical way for most of us to get around, this video serves to inspire and fuel our wanderlust for Quebec. Tourisme Quebec has an interactive website to help you plan your travels to Quebec, highlighting many of the experiences in the video. They’re sorted by categories according to interests, which makes it easy to plan a trip based on your favorite attractions and activities. As you browse the website, you can easily save your favourite selections to a list for future reference.

I’m going to choose a few of my favourite scenes from the video and show you where to travel for similar experiences.

THE OUTDOORS AND NATURE

Quebec is home to sensational scenery, natural wonders, and a vast array of wildlife. Being from Toronto, I’m so thankful that this beautiful nature is practically in my own backyard. I don’t have to travel halfway across the world to witness such breathtaking views.

THE SAGUENAY FJORD

The Saguenay Fjord is North Amerca’s only navigable fjord. The Saguenay-St. Lawrence Marine Park is one of the best places in the world for whale watching. You might catch glimpses of seals and beluga whales on your next sea kayaking adventure there.

MONT MEGANTIC

Mont Megantic is home to the first (and Quebec’s only) International Dark Sky Reserve. There’s an enormous telescope there for observing the night sky. You can also camp beneath the stars. And if you’d looking to stay in an interesting accommodation, Quebec has some of the most unusual places to stay overnight. You can spend the night in a treehouse, a teepee, a lighthouse, a submarine, or even a prison cell!

BIC NATIONAL PARK

Venture out on foot and hike Bic National Park. There’s a vast landscape of bays, coves, islands, and mountains. Seals bask near the edge of the St. Lawrence River, and thousands of seabirds nest there. At the end of an invigorating day of hiking, you’ll be rewarded with one of the most spectacular sunsets.

CULTURE AND CREATIVITY

Quebec is steeped in a rich history and culture that’s alive and well. The province has a unique heritage that you can discover through visiting museums, exploring local landmarks, and interacting with its citizens.

OLD QUEBEC

From the Chateau Frontenac to the cobblestone roads of Lower Quebec, Old Quebec is a bit like stepping back in time. It’s the birthplace of French America, and you can still visit the oldest stone church in North America, Notre-Dame-des-Victoires. Quebec City is the only North American city, north of Mexico, to be surrounded by fortification walls and defensive structures.

ILE D’ORLEANS

It’s known as the “Garden of Quebec” and the “Cradle of French Civilization in North America.” Ile d’Orleans is an epicurean destination where everything is grown locally on the island. Drive or ride a bicycle through the countryside, stopping to try local specialties like fruits, vegetables, and cider. Make sure you try the renowned blackcurrant liqueur. There’s also sensational scenery and viewpoints to discover on your journey around the island.

FORESTA LUMINA

Foresta Lumina is an illuminated nocturnal pathway through the woods. You’ll be immersed in a universe inspired by the mythology and heritage of Quebec’s forests. It’s coming soon in the summer of 2017 to Coaticook, Quebec.

MONTREAL’S CELEBRATION

Montreal turns 375 this year! To celebrate this epic occasion, the city of Montreal has awesome events happening all year long. There are many reasons to visit this world class city.

MOUNT ROYAL

The best views of the city are from the summit of Mount Royal. This park was created by the same architect that designed New York City’s Central Park. Be surrounded by nature while enjoying panoramas of Montreal’s skyline.

OLD PORT

Old Port is an ideal location for biking, cruising along the St. Lawrence River, or walking around to explore. There are tons of boutique shops, restaurants, cafes, and patios. There’s even an urban beach here to enjoy some sun and sand!

HABITAT 67

Speaking of biking, you can enjoy bicycle paths running right past Habitat 67, a one-of-a-kind housing complex. Built as a pavilion for Expo 67, these modern housing units are currently used as apartments. Stacked one on top of the other, there’s really nothing like it.

    So… can I go back to Québec already?! I’m ashamed to say I’ve only visited Montréal and Québec City, but I’m dying to see the Saguenay Fjord. I didn’t even know about Foresta Lumina!! Québec is full of so many treasures – Glennis and Kip captured the province’s beauty so well!

    This made me miss Quebec! I would love to experience what they did, waking up by the water, in the forest and even playing hockey with the kids.

    Back in the day when we used to live on the East Coast, we took many trips to Quebec. Interestingly, we never ventured the way you went. We always drove further north, passing Mount Tremblant and going to the lakes. Nature is amazing up there, so I have no regrets about Quebec’s wilderness. That said, I would love to visit Quebec City and places around it.

    This is a fantastic list. Also, being from Toronto I’m so glad this list consists of thing in my own backyard. The problem is the price of flying to other places in Canada (its almost as expensive as leaving the country lol) I love Montreal but I’ve never full explored much of Quebec. I will now though!!! Thanks for this list!!!! Love the map too!!!
