Quebec Holidays

Reference CTS9556

Book any of our Quebec holidays and you'll be jetting off to experience this amazing Canadian Provence. The fact that the province of Quebec has only one official language – French – makes it a very interesting visit. Quebec’s character is naturally slightly different from many predominantly English-speaking provinces but still retains a quintessentially Canadian charm. However, you will be delighted to discover its French inspired-heritage at every turn throughout your visit.

Quebec’s official animal is the snowy owl, which gives you a clue as to its climate! Despite the chilly weather, there’s plenty to do throughout the region. The region, in fact, embraces its colder temperatures with winter festivals, celebrations and even an ice hotel!

The region’s capital, Quebec City, is laden with treasures: over 100 restaurants and thousands of shops line the mains streets and the fun continues at night in many bars, clubs and theatres. Old Quebec town is a UNESCO World Heritage site and definitely merits a visit. From cinema to skiing, city to snowscape, Quebec is a very important province and simply will not disappoint.

The French-inspired Montreal is another iconic destination, with cutting edge architecture and an arts scene unrivalled by much larger cities across the world. If you want to try some authentic French cuisine, look no further than Montreal; home to some of the best restaurants across the globe, you will be spoiled for choice. And of course, where else could you possibly try some authentic Canadian poutine than in its birthplace?

Places to visit in Quebec

See Some Amazing Wildlife

Canada Wildlife Holidays - Bear Family
Black Bears

Grizzlies aren’t the only bears you’ll find in Canada. For guaranteed black bear sightings, head to one of the numerous holiday lodges in the Quebec region between July and September. These lodges have specially constructed viewing platforms to allow you to catch as many glimpses of these majestic creatures in their natural habitat as possible. Indeed, it is not uncommon to pass a black bear meandering along the road as you drive across Canada! While attacks are very rare as the bears are shy and like to avoid confrontation with humans, travelling with an experienced guide will provide you will the safest, most unforgettable and awe-inspiring experience of your life.

Canada Wildlife Holidays - Wild Seals
Harp Seals

Quebec’s Magdalen islands are no longer simply a summer hotspot due to their stunning sandy beaches. Visit the province in the chillier months and take a trip to this collection of 8 islands to witness a gathering of hundreds of thousands of adorable harp seals. The seals are drawn to Quebec for 2-3 weeks every winter and are really friendly – you may be able to get up close and observe them lounging on the rocks! The islands are accessible by either boat or helicopter, and any trip with an expert will take you into the heart of the seal habitat – you will be left speechless as you see them stretching out on the ice as far as the eye can see. We suggest you bring a camera – you will easily keep falling in love with these furry grey pups long after your trip comes to a close.

Canada Wildlife Holidays - Whale Watching
Whales

Being one of Canada’s most spectacular maritime provinces, it is only natural that Quebec is home to some of the most awe-inspiring whale-watching sites around the world. Visit between May and October and sightings of up to 13 species of whale are almost a guarantee in the flowing waters of the St. Lawrence river. Impressive blue whales – the largest animals on the planets – and glorious humpbacks can be spotted breaching in pods. Take a sightseeing boat tour or an exhilarating trip on a zodiac or sea kayak for views that will take your breath away. You may even catch a peek of them on land from particular points along the coast! However you choose to explore, the opportunity to see mighty whales in the wild is something you will never forget.
