Things To Do in Quebec City
1. Valcartier Vacation Village
Valcartier Vacation Village offers fun for all the family! With Indoor and outdoor waterparks – heated slides included - open all year round, plus a winter playground including more than 35 snow slides, this is the perfect place to spend a day during your trip. For an unforgettable experience, visit in the winter months for the chance to stay in Hotel de Glace, North America’s only ice hotel.
2. Montmorency Falls
Reaching higher than the Niagara Falls, the 83 metre Montmorency Falls dominate the landscape outside Quebec City. The scenery around the falls is extraordinary, and visitors can take in the views on the leisurely gondola, the exhilarating suspension bridge or even zipline across it for the ultimate thrill. Visit in the summer to watch a fireworks competition with the falls as a backdrop, or venture there in the winter to witness the impressive, ‘Sugar Loaf’ – a cone of ice that forms at the foot of the waterfall.
3. Champagne at Chateau Frontenac
The most famous part of the Quebec landscape – not to mention the most photographed hotel in Canada – Fairmont le Chateau Frontenac is an absolute must for visitors. Book a room in this grand hotel for the ultimate luxurious stay, or why not dine in one of the many restaurants? We suggest you book the breakfast buffet in Place Dufferin, and enjoy exquisite cuisine while taking in panoramic views of the St. Lawrence river.
4. Sightseeing Cruise
Travel along The St. Lawrence river to old town Quebec City on a sightseeing cruise with a knowledgeable guide who will teach you more about the fascinating history of the city. There are numerous options available – we suggest you take either a dinner or fireworks cruise for your chance to watch the sunset from the water’s edge. No matter what the season, the view of Quebec City from the St. Lawrence river is always absolutely spectacular!
5. Visit Saint Anne de Beaupre Shrine
Visitors have been gazing in awe at the striking stained glass, sculptures and artistic masterpieces in this shrine for over 350 years. Dedicated to the grandmother of Jesus, this is the perfect stop if you would like to learn more about the religious history of Quebec, and the important part this Saint Anne continues to play in people’s faith.
