Adventurous ideas for 12 days in Quebec

Hi all,

My husband and I are in the early stages of planning a 12 day trip to Quebec at the end of August. We plan to spend a few days in Montreal and Quebec City, but we are mostly interested in adventures.

We are looking for suggestions on..

1) Small towns to visit off the beaten path

2) The best camping and hiking areas

3) Unique & fun excursions/ideas

4) The must see sights in Montreal & Quebec City (assume spending 2 full days in each)

We are in our upper-20s and are in good physical shape. We would like an adventurous vacation that we will never forget. All suggestions welcome!

The areas around Montreal/Quebec to think about having adventurous activites would include Mont Tremblant, a year round destination about 70 miles north of Montreal, www.tourismemonttremblant.com, the Eastern Townships, www,easterntownships.org about an hour southeast of Montreal, also a year round destination, and Charlevoix country, about 90 miles northeast of Quebec City, www.tourisme-charlevoix.com. Actually, in between Quebec City and Charlevoix you might also like Canyon St-Anne Waterfalls, www.canyonsa.qc.ca. All these areas have hiking, biking, canoeing, etc.

As for length of stay in both cities, both a very walkable, but Montreal is bigger and more diverse so I would do 3 nights there and at least 2 nights in QC.

Review these sights and let us know if you have any further thoughts.
