What to do in Quebec, Canada

As one of the most popular travel destinations in Canada, the province of Quebec offers an exciting variety of activities for travellers of all ages, from visiting historical landmarks to taking in breathtaking landscapes.

In and around Quebec City

Among Quebec’s many attractions is one of the world's finest ice hotels, the Hotel de Glace, which offers visitors a unique and exciting experience that can’t be found anywhere else in North America. You’ll have to arrive in-season, however, as the Ice Hotel in Quebec is built anew each December and brought down again in April. The Hotel de Glace opens for visitors in January and is located just a few km north of Quebec City. If you prefer more traditional, but equally spectacular accommodations, the grand hotel Château Frontenac is a sight to behold.

The impressive Montmorency Falls are another one of the main highlights of a trip to the Quebec City area. The waterfall is only about 12 km from the heart of Old Quebec and features a spectacular view of the surrounding area from the suspension bridge that hangs over the crest of the falls.

Montreal’s numerous attractions

As the largest city in the province, it’s unsurprising that lively Montreal is brimming with attractions and activities for tourists. Built on the banks of the immaculate St. Lawrence River, the city is home to the majestic Notre-Dame Basilica, the Montreal Botanical Garden and a number of exceptional museums.

Not far from the city is the Granby Zoo, a favourite spot for families with children. It houses more than a thousand different animals and has an adjacent water park that’s sure to thrill the kids.

Outdoor adventures in Quebec

Quebec has quite a few mountain ranges dotting its landscape, meaning world-class ski resorts like Mont-Tremblant or Mont-Sainte-Anne await visitors during the winter season. Mont-Tremblant is not far from Montreal and even has a racetrack where Formula One competitions take place.

There are plenty of other winter activities to enjoy in the Canadian outdoors, of course, including dogsledding, snowmobiling, and traditional ice fishing. If you love camping, swimming and hiking on the other hand, Gatineau Park, with its numerous public facilities, has got you covered.

Alternatively, outdoor enthusiasts can also explore the immaculate beauty of picturesque towns like Tadoussac, Charlevoix, or Sacacomie. Or, for pure, beautiful and unspoiled nature, check out the deep blue waters of the Saguenay Fjords or the dramatic landscapes of the World Biosphere Reserve of Charlevoix.

There are plenty of things to see and do in Quebec, so start planning your trip today!
