The Beauty without the Crowds
From mid-September to the end of October the Gatineau Hills and the Ottawa Valley are a riot of colour. Hardwoods, especially maples, contrast with evergreens.
Unfortunately, the most popular routes in the Gatineau are bumper-to-bumper with traffic which really cuts down on the enjoyment.
I has been traveling the region for years and know where the hidden scenic gems are. This tour guarantees spectacular scenery and an enjoyable mid-trip meal without the hassle.
I will choose a "back roads" route to avoid crowds. We'll hit small towns and scenic, photo spots. Lots of time to stretch your legs and take pictures. Distance will vary but usually 100-150. You'll be back at your hotel before dinner regardless of the start time.
