Good tips for a van roadtrip with Le Baroudeur
All the Quebec’s Villages-relais are listed on their website. You can find safe service and stopping locations at any time for a period of 4 hours or more. This can be very convenient for resting in complete safety. Keep your eyes open: a logo sometimes appears on road signs to inform you of the presence of a Village-relais.
While a van road trip is often synonymous with freedom (especially with Le Baroudeur), we strongly advise you to plan your itinerary before departure. Some cities are not favorable to wild camping or boondocking, which means stopping at a location that is not intended for long-term parking. So sometimes it is better to reserve a spot in a campground. During the high season, there are often limited spaces available in public parking areas, so it’s important for you to inquire beforehand. You can ask for information to the city (tourism office) or directly to the locals.

Choose your option, and I will tell you who you are…
- In the summer, we recommend choosing the mosquito repellent kit for more tranquility (it’s an essential for van road trips in Quebec during the summer). It is composed of incense coils to burn, 2 Vanscreen mosquito nets for the side windows, and a citronella spray from the brand Druide.
- In spring or autumn, when evenings are cool, we recommend opting for the comfort kit, which includes a warm duvet, sheets, pillows, and bath towels.
- Take the option “travel with your dog” to be able to travel with your best friend!
