First week of summer holidays and our wee family of 3 took a drive to Quebec. First day we drove around 500 km/ 6 hours and made it to our first destination… Parc Omega in Montebello, Quebec.
I keep telling people it was like doing a Canadian safari. We drive 12 km of nature routes through forests, valleys, and rocky hills. We saw deer, caribou, foxes, wolves, bears and a moose.
Day 2 – Driving to Quebec City
The next morning we woke early and drove around Parc Omega again. It’s like a different drive each time because we got to see different animals. It got busier as the day went on and cars/buses were stopped to feed the animals. It didn’t seem as natural anymore but we are so glad we made this stop.
Then we drove for about 4 hours (365 km) to Quebec City. We spent 2 nights here. We walked around Old Quebec, La Citadelle de Quebec and swam in the hotel pool a lot because it was hot… humidex at 35-39 C.
Day 5 – Quebec City to Mt. Tremblant
I love poutine and sometimes I crave it so much that I go to McDonald’s for poutine. And I probably over analyzed where to eat the best poutine too much. I made my family drive out of the way into a small town that claims to be the birthplace of poutine… Drummondville. Got to love my husband for going with my crazy ideas… so I can eat poutine. He really knows his way to my heart… through my stomach. YUM!!
After our discourse for poutine our 4 hour trip ended up being around 6 hours due to traffic through Montreal. We made it into Mt. Tremblant in time for dinner in the village. We stayed here for one night… probably should have stayed for two.
Going home 566 km – 6 hours turned into 8 hours home. Overall the trip was great. I would definitely go back to Quebec City, maybe in the winter and skiing at Tremblant would be awesome.
