Canada's industry-leading Southwestern Quebec backcountry maps
The southwestern corner of Quebec thrives with cultural and natural attractions. Hosting the French-speaking side of Canada’s capital region, north of the Ottawa River, the area known as Outaouais ripples with diversity. Our southwestern Quebec backcountry map book guides you through a land of colourful mountains, rolling hills, deep forests, and winding rivers both wild and tame. Here you can tour the heritage sites of Gatineau, bike ride through quaint Quebec towns, cast a line in one of over 20,000 lakes, and hike or ski the scenic trails of the renowned Gatineau Park.
The southwestern Quebec backcountry map book is designed to get the Quebec adventurer outside to play. An outdoor recreation reference section breaks down freshwater fishing spots, paddling routes, parks, multi-use trails and winter recreation sites, while our maps provide detailed and accurate coverage of southwestern Quebec. Gatineau sits in the southeast of the region, while the remaining smaller towns and backcountry sprawl along the Ottawa River all the way to Temiscaming. Our maps show you the intricate network of logging and bush roads, plus trail systems and outdoor recreation opportunities across southwestern Quebec. When it comes to relishing la belle province, let your southwestern Quebec Backroad Mapbook chart the course.
