Top Things to Do in Québec City this Fall

Québec City during fall
Guy Lessard

Québec City is beautiful year-round, but fall kicks it up a notch.

Marvel at the Fall Foliage

Québec City and Area is home to several grandiose places to admire the natural show of the fall colours. Here are 9 places where the landscapes are particularly spectacular.

Do an Outdoor Activity

Hiking is certainly the most popular activity to enjoy autumn. But have you ever thought about making a different outing for a change? We suggest 5 activities other than hiking to experience fall to the fullest.

Go on the Wine Route

The Québec City region produces several quality local drinks. Why not take the opportunity to make your own wine route to visit the exceptional vineyards of Île d'Orléans, Côte-de-Beaupré and Portneuf? It is even possible to participate in the harvest at certain places.

Take Advantage of a Long Weekend to Get Away From it All

Whether it's for Labor Day or Thanksgiving, long weekends are made for getting out and having fun. Discover our 3 day-itinerary to make sure you make the most of your long weekend in Québec City and around.

Discover or Rediscover the Neighbourhoods

Have you ever visited Saint-Jean-Baptiste, Montcalm, Limoilou, Saint-Sauveur and Saint-Roch? Québec City's neighbourhoods all have their own personality and fall is a perfect time to appreciate them.

Ride in Town or Around

With its vast cycling network, Québec City invites you to get on a bike and visit the city and the region while enjoying that special freedom feeling.

No bike? No problem! You can rent one in some companies or go on a bike guided tour.

Apple Picking

Fall wouldn't be fall without apple picking! For picking your own, head to Île d´Orléans as well as Côte-de-Beaupré. In most orchards you will not only find apples but also many processed products or local spirits.

Get in the Mood for Halloween

Immerse yourself in the atmosphere of this celebration by participating in a special Halloween activity throughout the month of October.
