Start your trip in the Outaouais region with a visit to the historic Fairmont Le Château Montebello, renowned for the quality of its rooms, spa facilities and creative menus. From there, you’ll be only an hour’s drive away from the bustling area of Mont-Tremblant for a well-deserved break at Fairmont Tremblant to sample delicious regional cuisine. If you had your heart set on a spa day instead, you won’t be disappointed at Hotel-Spa Château Sainte-Adèle where you can refuel by enjoying a dip in the hot tubs or selecting a special treatment or massage. You could also choose a stay at Estérel Resort and make the most of its Lido Thermal, a four-season spa overlooking the lake.

Continue your journey eastward to the Mauricie region. If you are tempted by a one-of-a-kind vacation, Le Baluchon, Éco-Villégiature is sure to exceed your expectations! This business dedicated to eco-friendly values delivers a soothing, serene experience to guests by offering a range of accommodations, closeness to nature and refined cuisine rooted in homegrown ingredients. And for a fun urban vibe, Hotel Gouverneur Trois-Rivières welcomes you for a comfortable night and a meal at its Le Rouge Vin restaurant.

The vineyards, shops, quaint villages and gourmet treats of the Eastern Townships are the ideal components of a heart-warming getaway! For your overnight needs, you’ll find four choice establishments steps from Mont Orford each offering a wide range of services. Choose the welcoming ambience and enchanting setting of Espace 4 Saisons, the creative culinary experience and superior spa of Manoir des Sables, the magnificent suites and upscale steakhouse of Estrimont Suites & Spa or the spectacular scenic view and Mediterranean-inspired menu of Hotel Étoile-sur-le-Lac.

To explore all sides of the Eastern Townships, your next stop on this trip is the OTL Gouverneur Sherbrooke to enjoy a romantic package deal and a walk around the capital of the Townships. Did you have a more luxurious vacation away from the city in mind? Then go for the works and treat yourself to the ultimate in country living at the five-star Manoir Hovey in the charming village of North Hatley or at the bewitching Ripplecove Lakefront Hotel & Spa, known for its fine dining restaurant and its spa nestled among ancestral pines.

The following portion of the trip takes you on the road to the Charlevoix region, known for its Flavour Trail and numerous exceptional spas. Before heading there though, you could decide to make a detour and visit the picturesque île d’Orléans – accessible by bridge from Québec City – to enjoy a delectable meal at Moulin de St-Laurent. Continue all the way to the marvellous Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu, where you’ll indulge in extraordinary views, fine dining and wonderful spa treatments. For the last part of your road trip, here are two options: choose either the Saguenay region for an invigorating stay at OTL Gouverneur Saguenay close to breathtaking landscapes, or take the ferry to cross the St. Lawrence River and reach the Bas-St-Laurent region for a beautiful riverside stay at Hotel Gouverneur Rimouski.
