The Outpost View Quebec  LIVE 

From the ancient Laurentian Plateau, to the verdant Taiga Forests of Gaspé, the pristine waters of Lac Saint-Jean, to the upper arm of the mighty Appalacian mountains, Quebec's reputation as the beautiful province is well deserved—and undeniable.

Mont-Mégantic International Dark Sky Reserve Mont-Mégantic Dark Sky

Visiting Mont Mégantic’s ASTROlab was a moment we’d all been anticipating—our inner kids still clinging to the astronaut dream. The reserve was the first of its kind; the region holds the title of the world’s first International Dark Sky Reserve.


Weighs of Escape Weighs of Escape

Wing tanks full of fuel aside, the heaviest things on aircraft—apart from the aircraft themselves—are the passengers and their luggage. All airlines already limit the number and weight of luggage and charge for excesses, but what if airlines started billing actual passengers in a similar manner? 


Coaticook River Valley Coaticook River Valley

Seeing the Coaticook River Valley should be a part of any visit to Quebec's Eastern Townships. Stepping foot on the edge of the Coaticook River Valley Gorge is without a doubt a tremendous visual experience which I will never forget. There's good reason why it's referred to as a natural wonder.

To see the view, you have to get to the view. When you’re travelling light and biking for 10 days straight, this means a little self-care. Here’s a few strategies for post-ride recovery that Dan and I have used.


Lac-Mégantic Lac-Mégantic

It's been two years since the 74-car Montreal, Maine and Atlantic Railway freight train infamously derailed—but there's a feeling of tremendous strength and recovery among the people of this salt-of-the-earth community.


Foresta Lumina Foresta Lumina

It was like walking into A Midsummer Night’s Dream with just a touch of the Brothers Grimm’s twisted inclinations. Located in the Eastern Townships, Foresta Lumina is Coaticook’s own enchanted forest.


Eastern Township Well Fitted

After getting our bikes fitted and a quick stop at Vignoble de L’Orpailleur in Dunham, Quebec—a quaint, peaceful slice of Eastern Township paradise—our cycling journey along La Route des Vins begins.


La Route des vins du Quebec La Route des vins

 Within the last decade, Quebec’s wine country has become a force to be reckoned with, and vineyards along the increasingly-renowned La Route des vins (the Wine Route), which we cycled today, are responsible for 60 percent of the province's entire production.


City to Country City to Country

Montreal awaits, and then the Eastern Townships and Quebec’s countryside, and along with it the promise of wine,  of biking kilometre upon kilometre—with perhaps a blister or two—of Quebec City’s ancient cobblestoned streets and breathtaking fjords.
