4- Apple picking on Île d’Orléans”][vc_column_text]
With summer coming to an end, it’s a tradition to go apple picking. Although there are several places in Quebec to do this activity, I have a slight preference for going on Île d’Orléans. . It also allows you to discover some other local products such as ciders, wines and squash. If you have a dog, some places will even accept them as long as they are on a leash of course!
