What to Do in Québec City in January

Family visit to the Hôtel de Glace, in Saint-Gabriel-de-Valcartier, near Québec.
Etienne Dionne

In search of a good New Year's resolution? How about resolving to do January with a positive mental attitude and enjoy all the activities on offer in and around Québec City?

Hôtel de Glace (Ice Hotel)

Do like the thousands of visitors who come from all over the world to visit this architectural wonder! You will be amazed by its entrance hall and its beautifully decorated rooms, which are reincarnated under a new theme each winter. Why not get out of your comfort zone by spending the night there?

Warming Stations

Tour the city’s pop‑up winter sites. Hurry—they’ll be gone come spring! Each site has chairs, gas fireplaces, some even have outdoor heaters. 

Commander un repas pour emporter

Ce mois-ci, on prend congé de cuisine et on se gâte en commandant des repas pour emporter.

D'ailleurs, la Ville de Québec nous lance un défi et nous invite à soutenir les restaurateurs en achetant des repas pour emporter. Et pourquoi pas en commander plus afin d'en offrir à un proche, un voisin ou un ami plus vulnérable. Tous les généreux citoyens peuvent partager leurs gestes de solidarité en utilisant le mot-clic #accentsolidaire.
