This is the road trip to Quebec you need to take this summer (PHOTOS)

Quebec is worth a road trip this summer.

And while we love Montreal for all things urban, we suggest you skip about 3 hours past its famous food and nightlife (or stop for a night and then keep going) until you get to Canyon Sainte-Anne – a majestic 1.2 billion-year-old canyon that will transport you into a forest paradise.

Un petit détour à ne pas manquer cet été @canyonsainteanne

Canyon Sainte-Anne is also the perfect place to get your hike on. Get ready to discover some beautiful sites such as the Canyon Sainte-Anne waterfall and make your way across the three suspended bridges that hang up to 60 meters above the canyon.

If hiking isn’t really your thing, you can fly across the canyon (yes, you read that right).

The Air Canyon is a speedy, high flying seat hanging above the canyon. Zip over the crystal clear waters and enjoy the forest scenery like never before.

If you’re really into a thrill-seeking experience, you can explore the Tyrolean Canyon Sainte-Anne, This will allow you to discover a unique spectacle: the meeting between the St. Lawrence Lowlands and the Canadian Shield.

You’ll be clinging to rock walls and cables, and you will most definitely get up close and personal with nature.

We’d say it’s well worth the 8-hour road trip.

There are only a few weeks of summer left and if you’re still in need of that Quebec getaway, Canyon Sainte-Anne is definitely the place to go.
