Top 5 of the most beautiful views in Quebec

Top 5 des plus belles vues du Quebec

The views ActivMom – by Naomie Veillette

As a young mother entrepreneur, my life mission is to inspire women to live their motherhood as they wish and to take the necessary actions to realize their biggest dreams. Eager for mountain hiking, I decided to pursue this passion despite the arrival of my son Malik, regardless of the season or the “what will people say”! We have climbed more than 56 mountains together since he was born, me well grounded , and him at my back or on my heart. Day hike, nights in a tent or in a shelter, solo or with friends, nothing stops us! Using my social networks, my workshop-conferences and the tools that I develop, I help and inform families so that they can go on an adventure with complete confidence and safety!

The most beautiful views of Quebec

Phew! When I was asked to write this article, I admit that I started to feel hot. Having to choose and rank only five breathtaking views, I didn't think I could do it! After 56 mountains with my 23-month-old son, it's difficult to select just five...Hihi! I'm not yet sure I made the right choices, but I'm giving it a go!

1 - Mont Vallières-de-Saint-Réal (Gaspésie)

Clearly one of the views that impressed me the most! In total, it is possible to reach seven summits in a round trip circuit, all in the open. Walking on the 100% clear ridges is truly incredible. The first two kilometers of climbing to reach the first summit are really difficult on the cardio, but then it's more "intermediate" to go from one summit to the other. The fourth peak is the highest and, in my opinion, the most beautiful. Alone with Malik on my back, I decided to stop there and return to the car. To discover, really! The Alltrails application tells me 8 km of distance and 638 m of altitude difference for the round trip to the 4th summit.

2 - Mont de la Perdrix (Charlevoix, extension of the Mont des Morios loop)

Sleeping in a tent on top of a mountain with THIS sunset… definitely an experience I will never forget! The view from this summit is MAGNIFICENT (even more than the summit of Mount Morios, in my opinion). We can of course see the Morios, but also mountain ranges in the distance. Absolutely incredible! Allow around 6 km to get to this summit (12 km if you do the round trip). The level is intermediate and advanced.


3 - Mont Gosford (Estrie)

The clear view at the summit, the mountain ranges as far as the eye can see and the rocky arrival give this mountain an extraordinary charm. I climbed it twice (including once with Malik) and I fell in love each time! The SF6 round trip trail has 8.9 km and 574 m of elevation gain. Classified as difficult, this is not a summit to be taken lightly. But well prepared, accompanied and equipped, by going at our own pace, it's done well!

4 - Round top trail, Mont Sutton (Estrie)

This trail has become very popular in the last two years with social networks, especially to go see the sunset. This is the third mountain Malik has climbed with me, only a few weeks old! Passing Spruce Lake, it is a moderate route of 7.1 km and 441 m of elevation gain. Several beautiful viewpoints at the top – definitely worth the detour!

5 - Sentier des Falaises, Vallée Bras-du-Nord (Portneuf, Capitale-Nationale)

This park is one of my favorites, not too far from my house. It is filled with several trails of different levels. I really had a weakness for the Cliffs trail; there are several points of view and it represents a good physical cardio challenge. The waterfall that we see in the distance is simply splendid! To do again for me this year, for sure! You should know that it’s a round trip. You can therefore decide to turn back whenever you want, for example after having reached a few viewpoints. If you go to all the viewpoints, it takes 17 km round trip and an elevation gain of 400 m.

I am very satisfied with these choices despite the difficult task. I can't wait to return to each of these places and discover even more! Are you looking forward to discovering Quebec this summer?
