I've decided to go spend 2 weeks in Quebec with my wife this summer.

Our plan for now is to

  • spend a few days in Montreal (where our plane lands, coming from France)
  • spend a few days in Quebec City
  • rent a car and spend a week exploring Quebec's surrounding, maybe towards the north and Tadoussac, probably hiking a little in the mountains
  • go back to Montreal (and take the plane)

I'd like to know where I can find hiking maps and topos for the region between Quebec City and Tadoussac. Is it possible to walk about everywhere in the mountains or are there many restricted areas ?

Any advice regarding small hiking trips in this region welcome !

Welcome to Travel SE! This sounds somewhat broad, since you're asking about itinerary, accommodation, transportation, maps, etc, all at once. Consider making this more specific, perhaps by splitting some topics to separate questions. (For example, "how to best go without car from Montreal to Quebec City" sounds like a fine stand-alone question to me!) –  Jonik Jun 26 '12 at 7:24
    
Would Travel SE enjoy 4 questions at the same time from me ? –  dystroy Jun 26 '12 at 7:31

I splitted it in 2 questions. I removed the other questions. See travel.stackexchange.com/questions/8023/… –  dystroy Jun 26 '12 at 7:44

I don't think asking a bunch of questions (at the same time) is a problem, as long as they are on-topic, specific enough and "answerable". In fact, we want lots of (good) questions here :-) –  Jonik Jun 26 '12 at 9:04

Ok, I'll see how that turns for the two first questions before spamming the site... –  dystroy Jun 26 '12 at 9:07

Only thirty minutes outside of Quebec City there are scenic hiking trails where you feel like you are miles away from civilization. The hiking trails at Jacques-Cartier National Park range from trails for the most experienced hikers to climb to the top of the mountain.

Jacques-Cartier National Park is located just thirty minutes north of Quebec City. It is a part of the Laurentides Wildlife Reserve and has 100km of hiking trails with some linking to the National Hiking Trail.
