A Relaxing Escape from the City

Orleans Island (or Ile d'Orleans) is a very short drive from Quebec City. You will cross a bridge from the highway and land directly amongst traditional rural living in Quebec. Be sure to drive a complete loop around the main road, Chemin Royal. You will find many shops and stands selling fresh produce, jams, jellies, preserves, wines, ciders, and so much more. We were able to buy some delicious farm fresh jam, and we were able to try samples at the shop. You will be surrounded by farmland with each farmer growing their own fruits and vegetables that are used in the products they sell. A specialty of the island are products made from blackcurrants, including wines and jams.
