Ah, the terrible teens! The age when the kids decide, “A holiday with my parents? No thanks!” That is unless there's plenty to keep them entertained—and let them enjoy a little free time of their own! The Québec City area has lots to keep teens happy, and ample opportunities for all of you to share some quality time. Here are a few suggestions:

  • 1

    Have Fun at Musée de la civilisation

    “Max, ditch that game console!” “Anne, can you put your cell phone away?” Ring any bells? If your kids like nothing more than escaping into a world of their own, they'll be in their element at Musée de la civilisation, with fascinating exhibits teens will love!

    Steps away from Québec City's Old Port, the museum lets visitors learn more in engaging workshops featuring interactive reconstructions, role playing, costumes, and a science area to grab their attention.

    Shivery Tales in the Old City

    Everyone knows that teens love to test their limits (and their parents’!) The cobblestone streets and historic buildings of the Old City are a perfect backdrop for the dark, spooky tales of early colonial times heard during Les Promenades Fantômes and Ghost Tours of Québec.

    Make a Splash at Village Vacances Valcartier

    Welcome to the most important 4 season resort in Eastern Canada!

    In summer cool off with 35 waterslides, a huge wave pool, and Everest—the highest speed slide on the continent—not to mention rafting, canoeing, and karting! And in winter there are 42 tubing and snowrafting runs to enjoy! A little ice karting with that? Yes, sir!

    Bad weather on the way? Head to Village Vacances Valcartier's indoor waterpark (reservation required)!

    Treetop Adventure

    How many times have you told them, “Come down, you're going to hurt yourself!”? You've lost count, right? So why not treat them to a safe treetop adventure? 

    Arbraska Chauveau will give your teens the chance to partake in an outdoor sport while pushing themselves to surpass their limits.

    Go Karting!

    One day you'll have to tell your teenager: “Yes, you can borrow the car, but don't drive too fast, OK?” In the meantime, if you like racing just as much as they do, the Québec City area offers plenty of opportunities to get the adrenaline pumping—all in perfectly safe surroundings!

    Come test drive the high-speed, high-octane karts at K.C.R. Karting in Château-Richer. The outdoor track is one of the most exciting in all of Québec!
