Colorful Québec! Autumn, that transitional season running from September to November, is heralded by an explosion of colors, aromas and flavors. As September draws to a close, the forests draw on their fiery cloaks, dazzling everyone with their brilliant reds, yellows and oranges. All around, vines and orchards are ripe with fruit, and clouds of snow geese fill the skies in a pre-Christmas pageant!
For active individuals, fall is the ideal season for exploring the countryside on foot or by bike. For those seeking to be entertained, festivals bearing colorful monikers abound in many regions of Québec. These events revolve around outdoor activities, such as hiking and chair lift rides, and often feature a cultural component.
The apple harvest provides the perfect excuse for setting off on an adventure that is delicious from so many perspectives. Picking your own apples, savoring a picnic and sampling all kinds of goodies as you roam the orchards that dot the Montérégie, Eastern Townships and Laurentides regions are the ingredients for a fabulous fall day. For a truly colorful and flavorful excursion, head out to Centre-du-Québec and take in the fascinating cranberry harvest. Cheers!
What could be more delightful than a drive through the southern Québec countryside? You are bound to think you have arrived in Europe! Our grape growers produce an astonishing variety of wines and would like nothing more than to have you sample them on site.
The return of the snow geese
On their way from the Far North, tens of thousands of snow geese touch down briefly on the banks of the St. Lawrence before continuing on to their wintering grounds on the east coast of the U.S. It is near impossible to describe the sight of this many birds, on the ground or in full flight, or the din of their calls—you have to experience it for yourself!
