Spring break is just that—a break. It’s the perfect chance to take a trip with friends or as a couple. You’ve got the time, and you deserve a getaway! So where should you go? Here are 5 good reasons to pick Québec City:

  • 1 The Mind-Blowing Attractions

    Ever been to a hotel made entirely of ice and snow? At Québec City’s Hôtel de Glace, it feels like you’ve stepped into a scene from Frozen! Unwind at the hotel’s ice bars and outdoor spas and just let it go—the cold never bothered you anyway, right? 

    Remember how fun it was to get bundled up in a puffy snowsuit and colourful toque and spend the day sledding or just imagine how exciting it can be if you've never experienced it before? You can relive those days or try it for the first time at Village Vacances Valcartier, but instead of one hill and a crazy carpet, this winter playground has over 35 innertube runs for thrill-seekers to enjoy.

  • 2 The Out-of-the-Ordinary Activities

    In Québec City, we’ve got more fun things to do than we’ve got snow—and that’s saying something! Imagine ice canyoning in the morning, dog sledding, snowmobiling, or fat biking in the afternoon, then putting your feet up by the chalet fire with a glass of Coureur des Bois in your hand.

  • 4 The Vibrant Culture

    There’s no such thing as being too cultured—visiting a museum, going to a concert, seeing a play, or touring art galleries is never a bad idea. In Québec City, there’s no shortage of ways to enjoy the finer things in life.
