Explore the Beauty of Quebec City

Quebec City holidays are full of romance, history, art and culture. As the birthplace of French Canada and the centre of French North American culture, Québec City is incredibly gracious, and architecturally bold, maintaining its 17th Century European influenced style to this day. The city boasts many windy cobblestone streets and unique shopping districts. The old fortified city walls remain to this day and walking tours are available which will take you through the streets and talk you through the history of the city.

Québec City Canada embodies the palpable “joie de vivre” spirit which many Québec cities hold dear. It is a city that enjoys celebrating, even in the midst of the darkest, coldest months of winter. The Winter Carnival takes place end of January into February and features ice carving, snow sculptures, a night parade and other festivities while summer months bring the spectacular Quebec City Summer Festival, and various other music and arts festivals including the New France Festival which celebrates the French Settlers who first founded Québec back in the 1600s in a combination of art and history with entertainment for the whole family.

A holiday in Québec City isn’t complete without a few gorgeous strolls through the city’s many beautiful walking paths, nearby parks, and waters all just waiting to be seen and explored. Dufferin Terrace takes you on a beautiful cobbled path that overlooks the St. Lawrence River and Montmorency Falls Park features a spectacular waterfall (30m higher than Niagara). The Chemin du Roy, North America’s first highway, is a beautiful pathway connecting Montréal and Québec City which takes you through various pastoral landscapes alongside the St. Lawrence. Québec City is also known for its amazing French inspired cuisine. If you are interested in a local market atmosphere and a chance to purchase locally produced treats, be sure to visit The Gourmet Route.

A city of incredible spirit, and just a touch of pride, a Québec City holiday is sure to be exciting and memorable, and the city’s enchanting historic sites, food, and culture likely to continue to entice you for years to come.
