Day 8 – Quebec City to Home Cities

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch

Enjoy a late checkout today before we enjoy an included lunch and tour at Le Chemin du Roy Maple Sugar Shack.

The sugar shack Érablière le Chemin du Roy takes its name from the ancestral road (King’s Road) that crosses it. This road, which the construction began in 1715 under the French Regime, was drawn up by Mr. Pierre Robineau and connected Cap Rouge River to Neuville. In 1734, the link between Quebec and Montreal was completed. It took four days by horse-drawn carriage to cover 267 kilometers on the edge of the St. Lawrence River or in the hinterland. After more than three centuries, we still find a part of this ancestral road on the site of our maple grove.

Our sugar shack, where the maple water is transformed into maple syrup, was built in 1925. In 1989, the famous hockey player Guy Lafleur acquired the maple grove. In 1991, Mr. Real Boissonneault and Mr. Ghislain Vadnais became the new owners and gave another mission to the site: ’Érablière récréo-touristique’. Since 1999, Mr. Boissonneault has been the sole owner.

In the heart of an ancient maple grove about 20 minutes drive west from Quebec City, you have arrived at the fabled King’s Road country “Chemin du Roy” which holds its own lore and distinction. The historic road on the north shore of the St. Lawrence River was once considered the longest road in existence when completed in 1787.

After a fabulous lunch, we will transport you to the airport for your flights home.
