Do you and your motorcyclist friends want to hit the roads of Quebec together? If like many you don't know where to start because of the sheer size of the road network, here are three recommended itineraries that you and your friends can discover during a motorcycle roadtrip.
Travel the wine route in Montérégie
If you and your friends who are passionate about motorcycles consider yourselves to be epicureans, you must absolutely take the Montérégie Wine Route on your next roadtrip. In the municipalities of Rougemont and Saint-Paul-d'Abbotsford, you can visit five vineyards that offer quality products that are just waiting to be savoured!
This fertile region, which is ideal for growing grapes and apples, has produced many red, white, rosé and cider wines, all made from local fruits. The winegrowers you will meet on your trip will certainly be happy to let you taste them.
Not to mention the roads that criss-cross the Montérégie region are also very pleasant to ride on a motorcycle, especially given the splendid landscapes you can admire there. In a nutshell, a unique sensory experience awaits you.
Discover new flavours in Charlevoix
If you still want to discover new flavours after your trip to Montérégie, why not carry on your journey to the beautiful Charlevoix region?
Well-known even outside Quebec's borders, many chefs and producers in this region with its fantastic panoramas participate in the so-called Route des Saveurs. In the middle of a motorcycle roadtrip, there's nothing better than stopping by the local farmers, cheese makers, bakers and chocolate makers to satisfy your appetite and immerse yourself in their unique vision of gastronomy.
Many points of interest on the Route des Saveurs can be reached by taking the road along the St. Lawrence River. This will allow you to visit some of the most beautiful villages in Quebec.
A trip to the North Shore to see the Daniel-Johnson Dam
After the culinary discoveries in Montérégie and Charlevoix, there is a complete change of scenery on the North Shore, more specifically at Hydro-Québec's Manic-5 complex. This is home to the Daniel-Johnson hydroelectric dam, recognized as the largest of its kind in the world, with multiple arches and foothills.
You can experience the immensity of this concrete giant after a stress-free ride on the Trans-Québec-Labrador highway. If you and your friends love winding roads, you will be satisfied with the more than 400 curves along the way.
Despite the geographical remoteness of the area, you will still be able to plan stops for food and gas, both at the halfway point and at the Manic-5 complex.
