Off the Beaten Path: Explore Canada’s French Heritage

July 15, 2015

Dreaming about practicing that hard-earned high school French, but your wallet is feeling a little too empty for a cross-Atlantic flight? Then it’s time to head to Quebec.

For an authentic French Canadian experience, take a step off the overly beaten path, and let hotel search trivago.ca guide you to five of the most beautiful towns and areas in La Belle Province where you can embrace our French and Acadian culture.

Îles de la Madeleines

 Tourisme Îles de la Madeleines

Red cliffs, crescent-shaped beaches, underwater caves, and classical French maritime architecture are just the start of what makes the Magdalen Islands so charming. Stay in the largest town Cap-aux-Meules and join into the local Acadian nightlife at a boîtes à chansons, or kayak, windsurf, hike and whale watch as you explore the 12 islands that make up the archipelago.

Charlevoix

 Tourisme Québec / Benoit Cecile

Stay in Charlevoix’s charming towns of Baie St. Paul or La Malbaie to explore fjords, headlands, bays, and hills of this UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve. The Charlevoix region is a gourmand’s dream, and the famous Route des Saveurs (Flavor Trail) — starting in Petite-Rivière Saint-François and ending in La Malbaie — is a must-try for any traveling foodie.

Tadoussac

Perhaps the single best place to whale watch in Canada, Tadoussac is alive with marine wildlife and home to Canada’s first marine national park. Step inside the petite chapelle de Tadoussac, the oldest church in the US and Canada, or hike up to Islet Point for a view of the Saguenay Fjord that will leave you breathless.

Percé

 Tourisme Québec / Marc Loiselle

The town of Percé is home to one of the world’s largest natural water arches, the Rocher Percé (Percé Rock). Visit at low tide, and walk right up to the hole in the rock. A favorite with bird lovers, visitors to the town can also take a ferry to Bonaventure Island, the world’s largest and most accessible bird sanctuary.

Mont-Tremblant

 Association villégiature Tremblant

There’s more to this crown jewel of the Laurentians than its winter ski slopes. Come summer it’s time to boat and swim Lac Tremblant, hike (or gondola) up the mountain, fish, enjoy the music of Les Rythmes Tremblant festival, or practice your French as you explore la petite village.
