I am going on a trip in a few weeks with a friend from Montreal. Any suggestions for where we should go? I am open to Class 2 whitewater, big lakes or tidal rivers with lots of wind, and tiny rivers running through wetlands. Multi-day backcountry camping is mandatory, not camping near roads. Let's say within a five-hour drive of Montreal, preferably a bit less.
I have been to the Adirondacks and Algonquin and La Verendrye and would go back to either. I have often heard of the Gaspe Peninsula but know nothing about it (and I doubt it's within driving range). My friend has heard of La Mauricie but knows nothing about it. Any info? Other possibilities?
