Quebec City holidays

Get inspiration

QUEBEC CITY? SORTED.

A culture-rich capital that’s drenched in romance, you can’t help but fall in love with Quebec City. In this picturesque melting-pot, centuries-old French influence and quintessential Canadian charm perfectly combine. Set apart by its fascinating history, ornate architecture and innovative spirit, Quebec City has an allure entirely of its own.

Quebec City’s most iconic building is undoubtedly Fairmont Le Château Frontenac. Awarded the title of ‘most-photographed hotel in the world’, this 19th-century, palace-style landmark sits just beside the St Lawrence River. Equally beautiful when drenched in sun or covered in snow, Fairmont Le Château Frontenac can be admired from various viewpoints around the city. Get a peek up close from the Dufferin Terrace, or take a stroll around the Fortifications of Québec for views from a distance.

An enchanting labyrinth of cobblestone streets and ivy-adorned brick buildings, Quartier Petit Champlain is another post-card-worthy spot to see on your trip to Quebec City. Nestled in the heart of Old Quebec, this idyllic area is known for being the oldest commercial artery in North America. Go looking for intricately-painted wall murals during the day, or wander through warmly-lit alleyways in the evening for an entirely fresh perspective.

Away from the city, Île d’Orléans offers its own kind of magic. Fragrant lavender fields and whimsical white cottages set against a scenic country landscape, this little utopia is only a short drive away from the centre of Quebec City. And, for such a small island, there’s a surprising number of attractions to explore. Visit ironwork galleries, woodcraft boutiques, maple farms and vineyards, all while learning about French Canadian heritage and culture. 

Whether you want your time to be all about slowing down and enjoying the simple things in life, or you wish to be swept away by the excitement and sparkle of the city, a Quebec City holiday is the perfect choice. Chat to one of our Travel Specialists to find out more and start creating your tailor-made trip.
