Adventures on the Water in Québec

In the warm months of summer, vibrant meadows of wildflowers and green hills spring to life, and with them Québec’s summer adventures, which stretch into late September or early October, beckon.

If you like your vacation with a strong surge of adrenaline, Québec offers plenty of thrills. Adrenaline-fueled two-wheel adventures abound, with some of the best mountain biking in the East.


On the quieter side, there are plenty of options for relaxing rejuvenation in Québec. For a huge dose of restorative nature, head to the diverse array of national parks that flank 


With half of Québec wild and wooded and more than 300 lakes peppering the landscape, there are more than 50 national parks and wildlife reserves throughout the province.

Beautiful beaches, peaks, rivers, lakes, and trails (even monoliths in Mingan Archipelago National Park Reserve) make these parks the perfect place to unplug and unwind.

Everywhere you go in Québec, you’ll be drawn to explore the natural world. Even Montréal and Québec City coexist in harmony with nature, as do the countless waterfront village


Get the best of both worlds by starting your trip in one of the cities and then venturing out to other areas where you can truly enjoy the province’s access to the river, ocean, and lakes.
