Québec Holidays

The perfect mix of French and Canadian cultures, offering a unique experience


The colourful province of Québec is unique, bursting with rich culture and history to discover. For a city break holiday with an edge, choose Montréal or Québec City. Choose the stunning lush countryside regions for complete relaxation in tranquil settings or thrilling outdoor activities. With new settlements or ancient architectural delights, seaports or forest estates, vibrant cities or waterfall wonders, Québec is perfect for a family fly drive holiday or chic city break.

We love VIA Rail's Corridor Service in eastern Canada allowing you to link many of the vibrant cities together in one trip, enjoying spectacular scenery along the way. If you have time, we recommend exploring both Montréal and Québec City during your trip holiday as they are very different and offer so much to see and do.

A holiday to Montréal combines both the Old and New Worlds of Québec, speckled with winding cobble streets married perfectly with the lively culture of New Montréal brings forward a new generation for Québec. If you love trying new things, the food and shopping in here is incredible! Rue St. Laurent has a list of great little pubs and restaurants. It was once where mainly French-speaking locals would socialize, however it is now a melting pot of culture and little architectural marvels. This is one of the longest streets in the city and starts in Old Montréal.

For the best views of Montréal, travel up to Mont Royal and enjoy one of the city's largest green spaces. If you love to hike or enjoy walking, climb up to the Kondiaronk Belvedere where you can snap some amazing aerial shots of the hustle and bustle of this energetic city below.

Québec City is beautiful, oozing a real Old World charm. Cobble streets, designer boutiques, Parisian-style cafes, impressive architecture and intriguing history. See Canada's oldest city from the deck of a cruise boat on the St. Lawrence River. As you cruise along the shoreline, a guide relates the story of ‘New France' and tells you about the origins of Québec's most famous landmarks. Relax and take in the spectacular views of the Chateau Frontenac, Cap Diamant, Ile d'Orleans and Montmorency Falls. And just when you think you have seen it all, you can hop on the famous Faubourg Elevator to visit the inspiring Saint Jean Baptiste district.

On any Québec holiday, a must is a visit to Montmorency Falls. Reaching higher heights than Niagara Falls, you have the unique experience of walking the width of this natural wonder via a suspension bridge. Take the gondola to the peak and walk the bridge across – certainly not for the faint of hearted – but you can always take the stairs up or down the length as well.
