Il D’Orleans, Quebec: Food Island

Quebec has an island the size of Manhattan, and all they do there is grow delicious, organic food.  Well, that’s not all they do there, but basically, yeah.  Lots of farmers.  Oh, and did I mention they have wineries?  I’d say a day trip to Il D’Orleans is essential for your Quebec trip.  That is, if you enjoy delicious food, pastoral views, and happiness.

St. Lawrence River cruise, Quebec

If you want to explore the coastline of Quebec on a boat, you can do that.  You shouldn’t, though.  If I were you, I’d spend your time doing something else.  You still should watch the video, though.  It explains why your time is better spent somewhere else.

Quebec City Overview

“Robert,” you might be saying, “I don’t want to watch all of these videos on Quebec City.  There are sooo many!  Isn’t there one video that gives an overview of that quaint city with a healthy does of European sensibilities?”  Yes there is.  This is that video.

Quebec City Helicopter Ride

Sure, you could drive through the countryside of Quebec and see the beautiful natural surroundings.  Or, if you have a connection with a helicopter company, you could fly over the beautiful natural surroundings and see the sheer scope of pristine wilderness.  If you have that choice, might I suggest taking the helicopter ride option?

Hotel La Ferme, Quebec

There’s a great hotel to check out in the Charlevoix region of Quebec.  What is it?  Why, it’s Hotel La Ferme, the hotel in this video!  Inside the hotel, it’s like an IKEA with better made furniture.  And the hotel is really close to some great skiing, I hear.  I “hear” about the skiing because I visited in the fall, and even if I were there in winter, I wouldn’t be skiing.  I try to avoid opportunities to break my legs.  That’s why I never borrow money from gangsters.

Another great thing about the hotel: their restaurant, Les Labours.  This ain’t your American hotel restaurant that you eat at just because it’s convenient.  This place is legit.  And if you’re still hungry, why not hop on the Massif de Charlevoix Train for a gastro train trip, which just happens to have a station at the hotel?
