The perfect road trip: From Montreal to Gaspésie
Day 7: Rimouski
Drive time: 3.5 hours
Just 15 km from Bic National Park, Rimouski is the last spot on your week-long, whirlwind trip around the Gaspé peninsula. And what better way to cap things off than with a nice, long steam followed by an even nicer and longer dip in their hydrotherapy pool? Noah Spa will restore your mind and body with its unique watergenic spa course, which features a sequence of massage jets and fountains designed to help you achieve nirvana.
Once you’ve properly recovered, go grab a bite to eat at one of the coziest pasta places this side of Sicily. La Maison du Spaghetti is Rimouski’s go-to choice for quality Italian eats. With an impressive wine collection and an open-air terrace, La Maison du Spaghetti is the perfect place to sit and luxuriate in an evening of gourmet goodness.
After you’ve seen and done it all on this, the last leg of your journey, there’s only one thing left to do: head back to Quebec City for even more of what the Old City has to offer, or drive to Montreal and close out your east coast road trip in style.
