Things to do

Choose your pace in Quebec City

If you have a little more time, day trips to the surrounding areas offer a different vibe. Enjoy a relaxed time exploring the heritage homes and artisan outlets on Ile d'Orleans or pick up the pace as you slip and slide through the rides at the Valcartier Vacation Village water park.

Activities

Discover charming Old Quebec in Quebec City

History rarely feels as alive as it does in Old Quebec. This elegant historic district, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, features iconic architectural gems like the Cathedral-Basilica of Notre-Dame de Quebec and the Parliament Building, though a stroll through the quaint cobblestoned streets of the Petit-Champlain District or a picnic at the storied Plains of Abraham can hold equal appeal. Sightseeing tours are available from local guides but it can be just as much fun to discover the area’s charm on your own steam. Swing by rue Saint-Louis or rue Saint-Jean for dinner before you leave.

Weather

Enjoy every season in Quebec City

Few cities can lay claim to 4 fabulous seasons but, in truth, there’s never a bad time to stay in a Quebec City vacation rental. Summer here lasts from June through to September with temperatures on the sunniest days in July often soaring past 80. If you’re more of a wrap-up warm type of traveler, then the blanket of white over winter sets the stage for all manner of outdoor adventures. As the snow fades and the first hint of spring arrives, sugar shacks serve up maple treats while, in fall, the fiery foliage is the undisputed star of the show.

Natural features

Discover an inspiring landscape near Quebec City

To the north, Parc National de la Jacques-Cartier, with its rich forests and dazzling glacial valleys, offers the perfect backdrop for hiking and canoeing.
