Great site I only found it today when I've been researching a potential road trip I might do in the next couple of weeks.
My basic plan is to drive from Toronto and spend a couple of day at the Gaspe Peninsula over the Canada Day long weekend.
I was thinking I could take the friday and the tuesday off from work to give me 5 days in total with a basic plan something like this:
Friday: leave early and drive the 8 hours to Quebec city. Enjoy the night there, and most of next day.
Saturday: After exploring Quebec city drive 3 hours to Rimouski. Spend the night there.
Sunday: Start off early and enjoy the coastal drive around the peninsula along route 132. Stop off where we want, maybe a short hike, and then stay over night in Mont-St-Pierre.
Monday: Continue on route 132 enjoying the scenery and towns like Gaspe and Perce.
And that is sort of as far as I have gotten with my plan. I need tuesday to get back to toronto, and from there it could be at least a 12 hour drive.
Do I simply not have enough time to make this trip worthwhile? Has anybody been up around there? (I did search the forums).
If anyone has any suggestions on what I might do? or what I might do instead (i.e. road trips closer to Toronto) I'd love to hear from you.
Thanks very much.
