How long does it take just to drive around the island?

We plan to visit the island, but on our way to PEI. I need to figure out how long it takes to drive around and figure in a little time for stops on the way so I can figure out where to spend the night in NB.

Thanks.

this is a google map with driving time for the circle around the island https://goo.gl/maps/AHPvh495AuQ2

adding the first NB destination Edmundston, where you are likely to find a motel https://goo.gl/maps/5fFPqb1hFTC2

The drive itself may last 1 hour, but your experience will be all the more enjoyable if you allow at least 2 more hours for stops. You may plan ahead according to your interests, for example through a website such as this one http://tourisme.iledorleans.com/en/ (you may download brochures at …iledorleans.com/en/… or here …iledorleans.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/… ) . Note that the tourist office in Québec City's Old Town, a few steps from Château Frontenac, can provide you with a truckload of free info in your language, includiing the official tour guide of the island.
