Summer is all about hitting the festivals and embarking on spur-of-the-moment road trips. But it's also a chance to unwind and soak up the blue skies and warm weather. The good news is, you don't have to empty your wallet to get your fill of the great outdoors.

Having conquered the end-of-semester crunch with just $20, YouTuber Livia Desjardins decided she was going to spend every weekend of summer getting better acquainted with Mother Nature. She'll show you how you can experience the best of Quebec's beautiful wilderness on a shoestring budget.

Livia's suggestions

  • Canoe rental: $6.75 per person/hour
  • Homemade picnic: $3
  • AllTrails app: $0
  • Parc Parcours app (in French): $0
  • Access to paths or national parks: generally $0 to $6
  • Ice cream to round out the day: about $2.50
