Quebec City INTRODUCTION

Discover beautiful cityscapes and see how Quebec's defences have developed under the French and English regimes.

Cannons, loopholes, a star-shaped Citadel, Artillery Park, and fortresses are all part of this outstanding city. Regional Quebec also offers spectacular day tours by coach and rail, such as to the Le Massif de Charlevoix's exceptional gastronomy and breathtaking scenery.

Explore Old QuebecOld Quebec, a UNESCO world Heritage treasure, is the only walled city North of Mexico. Château Frontenac (the world's most photographed hotel) stands like a jewel in Quebec's crown, though the centuries-old architecture and surrounding historic sites certainly play their part in the beauty. Here, cobblestone streets house horse-drawn carriages, entertainers, singers and artists, particularly at Old Québec's own open-air art gallery, Rue du Trésor. High atop Cape Diamond, stroll along the Dufferin Terrace to see the St. Lawrence River, or join a walking tour to reveal all the best sites of Old Quebec.

Winter Magic and the Ice HotelCome winter, generous helpings of snow attract outdoor buffs from all over the world. In Quebec, one can enjoy skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, dogsledding or simply strolling through snow-covered historic boroughs. Plus, you won't want to miss North America's one and only Ice Hotel, which is part of the world's biggest winter celebration. The Quebec Winter Carnival and the Village Vacances Valcartier simply has to be seen to be believed!

Natural WondersThe St. Lawrence River — a massive river cutting clean across Quebec — has been a part of the city’s economic landscape for over 400 years. Harbour and trade activities plus a large number of cruise ships testify to its importance, while a public market, park, bike path and shows bring the Vieux Port to life. While in the region, take a trip to Montmorency Falls. At 83 m high (30 m higher than Niagara Falls) these falls can be seen from across the St. Lawrence River, though the best views are from Parc de la Chute-Montmorency, where you can feel the full force —and spray— for yourself.

Stunning Country DrivesExplore Quebec's extended beauty on a leisurely countryside drive. In the 19th century, this region looked very much like irresistible Île d'Orléans, complete with small villages, artisans and farm stands. Make some stops for the island's famous strawberries and apples, plus freshly baked bread, wines, ice ciders, blackcurrant liqueurs, and other local delicacies.
