    Cross St Lawrence at Trois-Rivieres

    OK thanks, had a bad experience with a flat bed tow truck and a studded sled, not pretty. We'll stick to the North side of the Flueve...
  3. I was wondering how you cross the St Lawrence at Trois-Rivieres. Is this a truck trailer crossing like in QC or is it a bridge? I've never been to that area and was wondering... Thanks, Fred
  4. Booked the Drakkar 2/16 to 2/22. Hope to meet anyone who posts on this forum that week. Fred

    Matane Hotel

    Ouch, I'm staying at the QI, that looks painful!
  8. Playhard, What do you mean by down the road and over the bridge? if it's a major bridge crossing that's a deal killer. Map looks like you ride the river to the front door. Drakkar is sounding better all the time. We can live without the hot tub. Thanks again to all.

    Matane Hotel

    Yes already checked the schedule. We're going to Baie Comeau on a Wednesday. Appreciate the advice.
  10. Any comments on the Auberge Gouvenor? Looks to be in the center of the down and close to restaurants?? Thanks, Fred

    Matane Hotel

    Thanks everyone, I used the FCMQ map feature and it gave me the 50K, my mistake. Sounds like the QI will be the better fit for our needs. I appreciate all the advice from those who have experience!!
  12. Looking for a decent hotel that has breakfast and a hot tub. Stayed at the Safari in the past, it looks renovated and nicer as the Drakkar. Any comments on the Drakkar? Do they have a hot tub and breakfast now? In the past we had to ride into town for food each morning which led to a late start. I liked the secure sled storage and of course Bernard (RIP). Any recommendations about the Drakkar or suggestions on where else to stay in Maurice area would be helpful. Thanks, Fred

    Matane Hotel

    Plan on staying the night in Matane in February and catching the ferry at 8 AM. It looks like the Quality Inn is closest to the ferry, but, others have commented that the Riotel is a nicer place to stay. So it looks like its about a 50 km ride from the Riotel to the ferry as you have to get back on the trail and go around Matane and back in to the ferry. Is this correct or is there a shortcut to the ferry (riding the side of the road, etc)? Would hate to make a wrong turn and miss the ferry. I'd appreciate any advice from thjose who have stayed at the Quality Inn and the Riotel. Thanks!
  14. Thanks for the information, hoping for another great year in Quebec.
  15. Does anyone know if this trailer service will be operating this year? Planning a long loop from Sheraton Signature ( "old" 4 points) to run south side of the St Lawrence, then cross over on ferry in Matane and back to QC over 6 days. I never used this before so any help would be appreciated. The main thing I need to know is can you ride from the Sheraton to the hotel on the QC side to get to the trailer service. I seem to remember some posts last year about a trail re-route that made this impossible. Also, how do you arrange for this service? Online? Call? I could trailer over and leave my sleds and riding partner and then drop rig back at Sheraton and take an Uber/taxi back to Levis, but, that seems like a real pain. Any help is greatly appreciated!!
