Get Ready for Bas-Saint-Laurent with these Tips and Tricks

If you’re wondering what the must-sees are in the Bas-Saint-Laurent region, here are some of my all time favourites and other amazing ideas you can book today to start getting ready:

Preparing For Your Trip

When I look for things to do in my destination, I always have a look at Viator, GetYourGuide, Manawa, Civitatis and sometimes even Expedia.

It’s first off a great way to find out what there is to do, but always a quick and easy method to book cheaply and efficiently with these renowned platforms.

Need a place to sleep? I find most of my accommodations on, but I also use for their rewards program (11th free night) as well as Expedia. When booking smaller places in Quebec, you might not find them here and you’llneed to contact them directly to book.

Looking for a cheap flight to the Laurentians through Montreal? Have a look on Cheapoair or Skyscanner I use regularly.

Once you’re there, rent a car to roam free with AutoEurope or RentalCars or hop on a bus around Montreal, Quebec and surrounding cities with Busbud.
