Highlights of Quebec

Quebec City is an excellent destination for travelers who enjoy history, architecture, and nature. There is something unique to offer every month of the year, despite the city receiving up to 13 feet of snow each year and the average daily high in December and January.

Do not miss these must-sees on your itinerary!

Mont Mégantic National Park

A visit to Quebec must include outdoor experiences, and Mont Mégantic National Park is one of the most important conservation areas in the province. Over 50km of hiking trails are located in the park in the northern part of the Appalachian Mountains. The Mont Mégantic Observatory is one of Eastern Canada's most important astronomical observatories. It is a magical and unique experience to enjoy the surrounding wildlife and learn about astronomy at the park during any season.

Gaspe Peninsula

The Gaspé Peninsula, located on the Gulf of St Lawrence, includes some of the province's most striking landscapes. With its famous pierced rock and outdoor activities like kayaking and whale watching, Percé is a popular destination in the region.


Several islands in the Îles-de-la-Madeleine archipelago lie at the mouth of the St. Lawrence River in Quebec. Many activities are available on the islands, including cycling, kayaking, camping, windsurfing, and kitesurfing. In Île du Havre-Aubert, the largest island, you will find indigenous archeological sites, a museum, an aquarium, a fishing village, and cafés and boutiques.

Village Vacances Valcartier

Both you and your family need to take some time to rest after a full day of learning and walking around. Winter is full of fun, so why not take advantage of it? Village Vacances Valcartier is North America's giant winter playground in the heart of the Canadian Alps. Adding to the already chill vibe of the park, Valcartier also opened an indoor water park in December 2016.

Whale Watching

In the pristine Charlevoix region, north of Quebec City, whale watching is excellent. With Tours AML, you can choose 24 to 48-person raft-like zodiacs or three-level comfort boats accommodating up to 700 passengers. The former is not recommended if you are prone to seasickness, but you will get a closer look. Despite a café and bathrooms on site, there's more competition if you want an excellent spot to view whales. There is a good chance of spotting whales either way, and they may include belugas, minkes, blue whales, fin whales, and humpback whales. In the rare event that whales are not present, you'll receive a voucher for a different cruise. You may also catch seals or dolphins. However, boat tours and zodiac trips cease operations at the end of October. Tour guides aren't kidding when they tell you to wear warm clothing, even in summer. A winter coat, hat, and gloves are highly recommended for the water because the temperatures can get very cold.

When to Visit?

Visit Québec City from June through September and December through February for the best weather. The city has plenty of festivals during the summer and winter months.
