Located between the St Lawrence River and the New England border, Southern Québec is full of charm and has a myriad of activities to offer. The mighty Appalachian mountains, small picturesque villages, covered bridges and round barns make this region unique and intriguing. From Montréal, head south east in the Eastern Townships to Knowlton. Enjoy a visit to a vineyard and learn about ice cider production, or try one of the many local cheeses! Continue towards St Ferdinand and stop enroute at a cranberry farm or a sugar shack where maple syrup is produced. Drive to historic Montmagny in the Chaudière-Appalaches region and visit Grosse Ile, a moving memorial to the thousands of Irish immigrants fleeing the potato famine. Spend a few days in Québec City, the oldest and only walled city in North America, before following Le Chemin du Roi back to Montréal.
