We are a couple in our 50s from the UK, planning to fly in to Montreal for a two week tour of Quebec, hoping to do some leaf peeping late Sept/early October. We like history, sightseeing, hiking, possibly a little gentle canoeing, and aviation history. We think that we would want to spend three whole days in each of Montreal and Quebec City, and would hire a car after seeing Montreal.
We would like to take a look at the Saguenay fjord, probably by a cruise from Tadoussac, and a hike from ? Not bothered about whale watching from a boat, but happy to look from suitable land viewpoints.
It has been suggested that we go up to St Annes de Mont and stay there for a few nights to allow for hiking in the area. Is this a good use of time in Gaspesie? We don't really want to drive around the whole peninsula as it looks like that would take a long time. Or would be better off spending time in Charlevoix (was thinking of going up Le Massif by cable car to see the leaf colours from there)and /or the Eastern Townships - how about the Route des Sommets?
