Don't forget your camera. 📸
The Montreal leaves are finally starting to fall to the ground, as they change from green to beautiful hues of red, orange and yellow. But in other parts of Quebec, the fall foliage is already near its peak.
Bonjour Québec's handy map of fall foliage shows us exactly when different Quebec regions have the most colourful fall foliage — ranked from "beginning soon" to "near peak" to "end." You can use this map to plan a picturesque fall road trip or hike.
According to the map's latest update on October 7, the following sites in these Quebec regions currently have fall foliage that's either nearing its peak or already peaking:
- Parc national d'Aiguebelle
- Site historique T.E. Draper - Chantier Gédéon
- Parc régional Montagne du Diable

Narcity Media's mission is to inform and entertain millennials with meaningful local stories about their community — because they live in the most interesting place in the world. Our content team is constantly striving to uncover magical spots that locals and visitors alike would enjoy.
That's because Narcity is your digital downtown. Every single day, you can discover what's new, what's now, and what's next, and the tools you need to explore the places, people, and passions that power your city.
To ensure that you have the best experience while exploring your Narcity and that the environment and local communities stay protected, we created these four responsible travel guidelines that will help you preserve these fascinating places for the next visitor.
1. Be informed.
Information found on Narcity Media websites will not always be up to date and cannot necessarily be relied upon. While our journalists strive to independently verify all information in our stories, establishments are constantly modifying their policies and opening hours, and businesses or natural sites sometimes close down for reasons outside of Narcity Media's control. We recommend always contacting a place prior to your visit to make sure that you can enjoy the full experience.
2. Be safe.
Narcity Media editors and writers use common sense when reporting — our stories are wonderful introductions to an adventure. We trust our readers to use their best judgment to understand which behaviour is safe when visiting a place. For example, climbing waterfalls or jumping from cliffs is not responsible. We recommend avoiding all actions that could potentially hurt yourself, others, or the environment even when it would make a beautiful photo.
3. Be smart.
At Narcity Media, we love turquoise rivers and secluded islands. However, these outdoor places are subject to environmental changes. The water quality may not always be safe to swim in — even when it looks as blue as the sky — and strong winds can create unpredictable waves. Before going on a water adventure, we recommend contacting local authorities, getting informed about the weather, and wearing a life jacket, even if you're a good swimmer. Your backdoor pool is not the same as a swimming hole. Visitors to locations are responsible for their own behaviour and assume all risks.
4. Be respectful.
The Narcity Media team thinks the local experience is always the best experience when done right. When exploring a location, from new trendy restaurants to romantic small towns, be nice with other visitors, respect local communities' values, and act responsibly like you would on your own street. Put your waste in the garbage, or keep it with you to throw away later if there are no receptacles on site. Respect the rules stated by the staff and visit the place's website beforehand to get informed. We recommend avoiding private properties, crowded locations to ensure the environment stays protected, and never touching natural habitats or animals.
Narcity Media welcomes funding for the creation of original content in all mediums: editorial, video, and social media. As per our Editorial Standards, we're transparent with our readers when stories are created in collaboration with an outside party. We use these three different labels to categorize funded content:
Supported Content describes content that is independently produced by the editorial team but funded by a partner. A partner can fund new projects or associate their brand with existing series on our website. Narcity Media's Editor in Chief has the final say on partnership approvals and ensures that all stories produced under this agreement respect our editorial standards, ethics, and values.
The pieces are written and edited by our editorial team of writers and editors or by a special projects team. Their editorial decisions are not influenced by partners, they do not submit copy for approval prior to publication, and do not accept any feedback or ideas from partners.
A partner can also fund new or existing original video series or social media special projects. The content is produced independently by Narcity's video and social teams without any say from the partners, before, during, and after the release.
All articles, content hubs, videos, or social media posts are marked as ''Supported By'' and the partner is clearly indicated.
Custom Content describes any paid published media (articles, videos, social media posts) produced by the Narcity Media branded content Studio in collaboration with a client. When partnering with Narcity, brands leverage our team's expertise to connect with Narcitys audiences through original storytelling.
Clients collaborate with the Narcity Media Studio to create informative, entertaining, or engaging content that builds brand awareness and affinity. This paid content is produced according to the industry's best standards and practices by our in-house team of Studio writers, editors, and producers. The editorial team is not involved in the creation of Custom Content. All content respects Narcity Media's values and is created in alignment with the interests of local communities.
All articles, content hubs, videos, or social media posts are marked as ''Presented By'' and the client is clearly indicated.
Advertiser Content describes a form of paid content that is produced, and/or controlled by an advertiser. Advertisers can work in collaboration with the Studio team to create articles or social posts to showcase their product or service. This content is created independently from the editorial, video, and social teams.
All articles, content hubs, videos, or social media posts are marked as ''Advertisement By'' and the advertiser is clearly indicated.
