“The maritime regions of Québec are among my favourites in the province. Bas-Saint-Laurent has charming towns, rich marine history and an array of regional flavours. Gaspésie has historic lighthouses, wildlife and stunning national parks. Côte-Nord’s rugged and bracing landscapes include Anticosti Island, the Manicouagan Reservoir and the Mingan Archipelago. The Îles de la Madeleine is where French, English and Acadian cultures interweave, creating a vibrant East Coast destination.
The maritime regions of Québec are rich in Québécois history and culture. Deeply French and intriguing. There is an eagerness to commune with nature and enjoy products and foodstuffs produced locally. These are a few of the reasons why I love spending time in Eastern Québec. The other is the language.”
