When you think nature, culture and wilderness, Quebec instantly comes to mind.

Canada’s largest province is well known for its natural beauty and distinctly European twist. It provides endless opportunities for RV based exploration which just isn't possible without your own set of wheels.

This article covers some of the more unique places to visit in Quebec in RV style and comfort. We have included a variety of destinations, from complete wilderness to winery routes, and a few places in between.  

Accessability

They are all within reach of Quebec's major hubs, with the added comfort of camping and RV facilities. Quebec City and Montreal provide the ideal places to rent an RV through RVezy to start your Quebec adventure!

Explore the Fjords in Parc National du Fjord du Saguenay


Fjords are normally associated with Norway and the Scandinavian region, but did you know Quebec also boasts these awe inspiring feats of nature?

Fjord du Saguenay runs for 105 kilometres at the mouth of the Saguenay River, and is one of the most scenic places to visit in Quebec! It’s a natural wonderland filled with seals, migrating seabirds (at certain times of year) and Beluga Whale!   

Hike your way over steep mountains which dive dramatically into the sea or captain your own kayak throughout the fjord system to discover marine wildlife (Beluga whales come well within kayaking range and can even be seen from the shore!).

Keep in mind that in the winter months you need to park your RV at the main entrance and hike in with snowshoe’s (a unique adventure in itself!).

How to Get There

At just over 250 kilometres drive north of Quebec City, it’s an ideal spot to start your RV road trip!

Starting from Montreal, it’s around 500 kilometres drive northeast along the Saint Lawrence River.

Discover Forillan National Park on the Gaspe Peninsula

Out of all the places to visit in Quebec, Forillon National Park offers a truly diverse coastal experience dominated by cliffs, sheltered by the Gulf of St Lawrence and littered with quaint houses forever watching the ocean horizon.


With the freedom of an RV you can follow the coast to discover hidden beaches, sit back and watch passing whales, or reach the best hiking trails with a chance of spying Moose and Black Bear!


There's even some interesting world war two history tucked away and awaiting discovery!

How to Get There

Forillon National Park is around 700 kilometres drive east of Quebec City, and 300 kilometres further from Montreal.

Complete the Winery Route between Montreal and Quebec City

Here’s a final one for those seeking that little piece of Europe that Quebec so famously offers! The roughly 250 kilometre stretch between Montreal and Quebec City is one of the most beautiful cultural experiences in Canada and one of the top places to visit in Quebec.


Get off the main road and meander through rural landscapes littered with wineries, cheese makers, rivers and lakes in Quebec's number one winery region.    


Camping facilities and RV options are plenty, providing the perfect base to explore the many diverse villages on foot.
