Canada’s oldest settlement offers an experience like no other.

About the Destination

Often referred to as the most beautiful city in the country, Canada’s oldest settlement offers an experience unlike any other – a combination of Old World European charm and Inuit, American Indian and French Culture.

Walk through narrow, cobbled streets of the Old City, lined with the 17th century architecture. Shop the streets of the only fortified city north of Mexico, then take a boat cruise along the St. Lawrence River to see the magnificent Chateau Frontenac by night.

Relive the Battle at the Plains of Abraham and explore the birthplace of French America in Place Royale. Brave the frosty fresh air at the Quebec Winter Carnival with skiing, snow tubing, or dog sledding; then, sip on a hot chocolate with Bonhomme!

Tread the suspension bridge over Canyon Ste. Anne, or cross La Chute-Montmorency (30 metres taller than Niagara Falls!) and reward your bravery with a taste of real maple butter at Chez Marie. Come and experience the “City of Romance” and you’ll be planning your next visit before you even get back on the bus.
