Quebec Holidays

A country within a country – Québec has its own distinctly unique culture, blended with French, British and Amerindian influences, yet still manages to remain completely Canadian. Explore its two famous cities, from sampling art and culture within Québec City's coolest quartier Rue Saint-Jean, or discovering the island-city of Montréal with a visit to the Basilque de Notre Dame followed by peaceful stroll to Mont Royal Park.  

Québec is so much more than its big cities, from the best-kept secret of the Laurentians region with its towering mountains, meandering rivers and quaint villages and the lush, rolling farmlands and crystal-lakes of the Eastern Townships to the incredible outdoors playground of Charlevoix – all to be experienced and enjoyed.

Get off the beaten track and try something completely different and unique to this region. Below are just a few suggestions of our favourite experiences in Québec.

  • Québec's Backcountry

    The stunning rolling countryside in Québec is to be seen to be believed. Picture idyllic villages and towns nestled among vibrant blue lakes and rivers and surrounded by miles of lush green forests and fields. Head to the Eastern Townships to meet the friendly locals as you shop for locally grown produce or stay in a cosy wood lodge in the heart of the Laurentians - an area famed for its outstanding natural beauty. With more National Parks than any other province, so head out and explore incredible sights, abundant and diverse wildlife and breath taking scenery

  • Wildlife

    There is nothing better than observing magnificent and diverse wildlife in their natural habitats - in Québec you'll have a front row seat to see all of the incredible species on display. Hit the water on a boat cruise to see whales, seals, dolphins and porpoises in the St. Lawrence Estuary or take a hiking trail through the forests and parks to spot beavers, black bears, moose, caribou and more.

  • Cuisine

    Uncover Québec's gourmet culinary heritage, across the province there are a myriad of food festivals, diverse, local flavours and lesser-known treasures to be savoured. Visit a traditional sugar shack to sample and watch the production of maple syrup or tour the microbreweries and wineries throughout Québec's back country, many are often paired with excellent farm-to-fork cuisine. no trip to Québec would be complete without trying its famous dish, Poutine - traditionally a combination of chips, gravy and cheese curds, it now comes with a variety of additional toppings from lobster to filet mignon.

  • Getting Around

    Though Québec may be vast, it is so easy to get around the province whether you are travelling between cities or heading out into the countryside and parks. Hire a car to drive the picturesque St Lawrence Trail through the Charlevoix region or hop on the VIA Rail to connect between Montréal and Québec City in less than 4 hours or even to travel down to Ontario's big cities. If you're looking to do something different, hire a motorhome and travel around the breath taking Townships Trail at your own pace or sail along the majestic St. Lawrence River a river cruise to New England.

  • Adventures Activities

    When it comes to adventure, Québec has it covered. No matter the season, there is always something to see, do and enjoy. Take advantage of the warm weather in summer and explore the hiking and cycling trails through the mountain forests in Mont Tremblant or the truly daring can take the zip line course from the top of the mountain all the way down to the base village. Winter sees Québec transform into a picture perfect winter wonderland with cross-country and downhill skiing and snowboarding, dog-sledding and snowmobiling being the best ways of viewing the snowy scenes.
