About Quebec

Canada’s largest province, Québec, is a unique mix: North American and European cultures; English and French languages; vast wildernesses and vibrant cities; and an infectious passion for everything from outdoors adventure to gourmet food. In the east of the country, it offers both varied landscapes - from a jagged coastline to pastoral countryside - and rich cities such as Montréal and Québec City that ooze both sophistication and fun. The best places to stay in Québec allow you to experience all of these attractions.

Sitting on the St Lawrence River, Québec City is the oldest settlement in North America and the province’s capital city. It retains its historic core (a UNESCO World Heritage site) around Place Royale, quaint narrow streets and old harbour. There’s also Notre Dame Basilica, the Parliament Building, Musée de la Civilisation - worth it for the architecture as well as the contents - cruises along the river, and the Montmorency Falls, a stunning waterfall between the Montmorency River and the St Lawrence River.

Montréal is named after Mt. Royal, the spiky hill at its heart. After you’ve taken in the cultural gems of the Musée des Beaux-Arts, Basilica Notre Dame and the Olympic stadium, treat yourself to French shopping - or window-shopping - along Rue St-Denis. Then head to the city’s Old Port, now a huge outdoor park along the St Lawrence River where everyone goes to stroll, cycle and in-line skate. Or take a cruise along the river or a trip in a speedboat.

Of course, the province has a huge outdoor playground beyond its cities, from the jagged coasts of the Gaspé Peninsula and the bucolic Charlevoix countryside to the vast taiga and tundra of the North Shore. To the north of Québec city, Forêt Montmorency offers plenty of hiking opportunities and the chance to spot moose, wolves, bears, beavers, otters and birds. Parc de la Chute Montmorency has hiking trails, a via ferrata and thunderous waterfalls. The Parc National de la Jacques-Cartier is a mountainous plateau of forests and glacial valleys, attractive to cross-country skiers and canoeists as well as hikers and cyclists. Or try Parc National de la Gaspésie where moose and caribou can be spotted amongst the Appalachian peaks.

In the south of the Province, North Hatley is the jewel in what is known as the Eastern Townships region - a lakeside beauty that's been a haven for holiday makers since the 1880s.

The Magdalen Islands are a little archipelago in the Gulf of St Lawrence, well worth a visit for some off the beaten track beach and wildlife, plus awesome views.

And don’t forget to take a whale-watching trip at Baie St Catherine where the St Lawrence River meets the Saguenay Fjord at the gateway to the vast Saguenay–St Lawrence Marine Park. The best time to whale-watch is between May and October when the best places to stay in Québec are likely to be popular, so do book ahead.
