A Québec City regional armchair scenic adventure tour
On this 3 day, 2 night, armchair scenic adventure, you will follow the St-Lawrence, do some arts/crafts/curios shopping, before arriving at the Saguenay Fiord, where you will visit the very touristy village of Tadoussac.
You will stay in a seaside cottage/condo or in the charming/modest Augberge Manoir Bellevue, in the not at all touristy village of Les Escoumins, eat at the seafood factory, go sea kayaking (can be replaced by local nature sightseeing) and whale watching by zodiac. (in the rare case of bad weather a cruise of La Malbaie River Canyon may be substituted).
On the way back you will tour Ste-Anne de Beaupré Basilica, go to the Island of Orleans for lunch, on the shores of the St-Lawrence River, facing Québec City. You will drop into a couple charming, family businesses, to taste local delicacies/wine, before touring the Plains of Abbraham and Old Town Québec by car.
NB: before confirming the booking the guide will make non refundable accommodation reservations. This could take up to 24 hrs.
