By plane

Given the sheer size of Québec, air travel is a fast, safe and extremely practical way to get around. Not only can you reach isolated regions like Nunavik that are inaccessible by road, you can also cover huge distances in next to no time, like Québec City–Gaspé or Montréal–Chibougamau, both of which take around 90 minutes.

Taking a plane is also a great way to get to the Basse-Côte-Nord (Duplessis) or the Îles-de-la-Madeleine in the Gulf of St. Lawrence. A number of operators will let you charter a bush plane or seaplane to the destination of your choice.
