For those willing to take a hike up towards some scenic quarters in immediate vicinity to historic Quebec city the cradle of french presence in North America , the Charlevoix region is a must. With sleepy seaside towns and a mountainous setting as a backdrop the adventurous will be delighted to discover a part of the Canadian shield which has some mountainous appeal !

RayMondoA really scenic region


Voted 10/10

I've also just been watching Ray Mears' trans Canada trip. You've got such a vast country, endless great places to explore. Looks just great. I made it Toronto, but that's it.

To be honest a dismal state of health forced me to take a bike to experience the country (ie; Quebec).

Once I started exploring I realised that I didn't know a thing about my back yard ! For instance here in Quebec the understanding is that we don't have mountains (except maybe in the Gaspé region -the 299 is compared to a true alpine road.. at least in the European "Routard" guide...).Although once you take the road you grasp that irrespective of their true height the thrill of their sight quite favorably compares to what you would find elsewhere . Furthermore some places I haven't explored (like the Malbaie river gorges -some pictures being visible on summitpost ) truely are a delight.

The summitpost link follows from another contributor:


The images I presented while benign by comparaison showed road drops of 2000 feet where the hills don't go much over 2000 feet which goes to prove that at seaside the thrills of a bumpy road makes the adventure worthwhile ! Furthermore there is much historical appeal to the region and many noteworthy places to discover in and out of season without forgetting the people which have great hospitality despite the understandng everywhere that I'm a little out of place...

Such moments of discovery have given me this strange fever causing me to go out and explore the countryside with the hopes of uncovering some overlooked scenery. Mind you the Google map feature had me grasp that no matter how low the hills may seem there is always some amazing scenery somewhere out there waiting to be discovered ! (I'm currently trying to uncover unconspicuous high waterfalls which are best uncovered with a topo map following a stream in accidented terrain)

Although, since I've visited part of the "Belle province" which has an amazing surface area, I am contemplating rediscovering Canada which is a truely amazing place to visit . Currently I have plans of going out to Vancouver by bus using the discount fare (which is much cheaper than going east within the province from Montreal). This would be my last trip in the immediate future unless my state of health improves sufficiently for I to be able to reintegrate the job market. Mind you my limited contribution here and there on the internet is of little symbolic merit and typically serves the purpose of interaction with a curious audience despite my quizzical nature. Although censureship is definitely going beyond the track ! LOL !

I love Charlevoix. We saw 4 different species of whales there last summer. Only spent a week there. Might go back this summer.
