Top things to see and do in Quebec City
Walking through the centuries-old cobbled streets of Quebec City, you might feel that you’re actually in Europe. There’s plenty to do at any time of year. Just to start with, you can explore the kilometres of stone walls and gates that enclose the city, discover fortresses, take a ride on a horse-drawn carriage or enjoy the work of street performers, musicians and visual artists.

PARC DE LA CHUTE - MONTMORENCY
Beautiful Montmorency Falls Park is just a few minutes from Québec City. In winter, ice climbers tackle the frozen rock faces amongst many other winter activities, even camping! In summer, the park is a hive of activity with playgrounds for the kids, hiking trails and unique via ferrata climbing routes.
Near mid March, when the days get warmer but the nights are still cold, the sap in the maple trees starts to rise. A Sugar Shack is where the sap of the maple tree is boiled and made into maple syrup. Maple syrup delights of all descriptions are a very enjoyable attraction during this season. Make a reservation at one of many Sugar Shacks in the area for an authentic sweet taste of Québec!
