Motor Coach Canada: Tour & Travel Canada 2019 - 50

Regions
Quebec is divided into 20 touring regions:

* Abitibi-Témiscamingue: This region's Cité
de l'Or, or Gold City, is home to the Lamaque
mine, which was once the richest gold mine in
Quebec. Visitors can explore 300 feet underground, or admire the collection of minerals at
the Musée minéralogique de Malartic.
* Bas-Saint-Laurent: Visitors can take a whalewatching cruise in Saguenay-St. Lawrence
Marine Park. The many villages of the area will
welcome tourists with the area's cuisine, ancestral homes and Quebec hospitality.
* Charlevoix: Designated a biosphere reserve
by UNESCO, Charlevoix owes its magnificent
geography to a 15-billion-ton meteorite that
fell to earth 350 million years ago. The area
features two national parks, the Parc national
des Hautes-Gorges-de-la-Rivière-Malbaie, with
its valleys and mountains, and Parc national des
Grands-Jardins, a land of taiga and tundra.
* Chaudière-Appalaches: The ChaudièreAppalaches region is home to the Parc national de
Frontenac on the shores of the magnificent 51 km2
Lac Saint-François - a place of unspoiled nature
that is ideal for bird-watching (over 144 species).
Thetford Mines features a Tourisme-Amiante mine
tour for an expedition into the heart of one of the
world's largest strip mines.
* Centre-du-Quebec: The Centre-du-Quebec
region is located halfway between Quebec
City and Montréal, on the south side of the
St. Lawrence River. There is no shortage of
things to see or do: agritourism, events, culture,
heritage, outdoor activities, antiques, golfing,
snowmobiling, ATVing, conferences and even
industrial tourism!
* Duplessis: This area is sprinkled with bays and
coves, craggy islets, forests, rivers and lakes. Fin
whales, sperm whales and other species live in
the Gulf of the St. Lawrence. The Île d'Anticosti,
the largest island in the province, features cliffs,
canyons, falls and rivers.
* Eastern Townships: The Appalachian mountain chain makes its way through the southern
part of this region, making it a hotspot for hikers
and skiers. The area features a wealth of parks
such as the Parc national du Mont-Mégantic,
which features an astronomical observatory.
* Gaspésie: This peninsula is home to Rocher
Percé, a 470-metre-long rock whose fossils
date back 400 million years. Parc National de
Miquasha is a fossil-rich site that UNESCO has
placed on its World Heritage List. For relaxing,
nothing beats sitting in the sand at one of the
superb beaches of Chaleur Bay.
* Îles-de-la-Madeleine: Lagoons, capes, green
valleys, red cliffs and brightly painted houses
are what make up this archipelago, comprised
of a dozen islands in the heart of the Gulf of
St. Lawrence. The Seal Interpretation Centre
presents information on the area's mammals.

50

* Lanaudière: The 103 islands of the Lac SaintPierre archipelago make up the UNESCO Lac
Saint-Pierre Biosphere Reserve which, in addition to being the largest waterfowl staging area
in North America, provides sanctuary to 288
species of birds every year.
* Laurentides: Just north of Montréal lies the
Laurentides area, featuring lakes, cross-country
ski hills, golf courses and more. The area is home
to Mont-Tremblant, which has been crowned the
number one ski resort in eastern North America
five times by Ski Magazine. Cyclists are privileged
in the Laurentides region with the P'tit train du
Nord trail, Canada's longest linear park.
* Laval: With almost half of Laval's vast territory
reserved for green spaces, nature lovers find it
difficult to choose between the large, carefully
maintained parks, the area's golf courses and
the fields teeming with fruits, vegetables and
multi-coloured flowers.
* Manicouagan: This region is blessed with its natural features: the St. Lawrence river, the Saguenay
fjord, the Parc Nature de Pointe-aux-Outardes,
beluga and fin whales and 175 bird species.
* Mauricie: Mauricie is a land of untouched natural
splendor: 85 per cent of its territory has remained
undeveloped. In addition to the Rivière SaintMaurice, the area features 17,500 lakes, nearly
2,500 km of groomed snowmobile trails, 1,125 km
of ATV trails and 80 hunting and fishing outfitters.
* Montérégie: Visitors can see the Chambly
Canal, in use since 1843, where most of the
locks still function manually. Or, they can visit
the Fort Chambly National Historic Site of
Canada, built in 1709 and site to various armed
conflicts in the 17th and 18th centuries.
* Montréal: A haven of historical buildings and
French culture, the old city of Montréal features
18th and 19th century residences, the neogothic Notre-Dame Basilica, as well as museums such as the Centre d'histoire de Montréal.
* Nord-du-Quebec: This northern and largest of
Quebec's regions is home to the Inuit, Cree and
Naskapi Indigenous people. This vast territory is a
haven to the hunter, sport angler or snowmobiler.
* Outaouais: This region's vast territory includes
Gatineau, a city of nightlife, shows, major exhibitions and a host of other exciting activities. Outside
of the city is an impressive natural area which
boasts countless bodies of water, immense parks,
animal preserves and nature outfitters.
* Quebec City and Area: Quebec City, the only
walled city north of Mexico and full of Europeanstyle architecture, is a busy seaport, an important centre of services and research, a cultural
hot spot and, of course, the provincial capital.
The old quarter of Quebec City was declared a
world heritage site by UNESCO in 1985.
* Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean: A treat for any historian, this area features the Village historique
de Val-Jalbert, a restoration of a hamlet that
was built around a pulp mill. At the Site de la
Nouvelle-France, in Saint-Félix-d'Otis, lies a recreation of a Huron village, a Montagnais camp
and Upper and Lower Quebec City that depict
life in the 17th century.

In July, Montréal moves to the rhythm of the circus.
The city awakens, surprises and entertains. Its
plazas, parks, sidewalks and indoor performance
halls become venues for colourful, high-flying
performances. Participatory activities, international
show, outdoor circus performances and loads of
surprises and magical moments await!
