Explore Québec City, One Virtual Tour at a Time
With the current COVID‑19 pandemic, travelling is out of the question. But we’d love for you to come and see our beautiful city from afar! That’s why we’re inviting you to be a tourist from the comfort of your own home.
Here are a few suggestions to help you get a break from the everyday and take a virtual trip in this time of sheltering in place.

Leave your wool socks and mittens in the closet for this excursion to Québec City’s renowned ice hotel. Visit this remarkable winter attraction on a 3D tour and get a close‑up look at all the architectural details that have made this frozen wonder so famous!

Montmorency Falls Park
This virtual tour gets you so close to the falls, you’ll feel like they’re in your living room! Take the cable car, visit Montmorency Manor, stop at the Baroness’ Lookout, cross the suspension bridge, explore an orchard, and walk down the 487 steps to the base of the falls. It’s breathtakingly beautiful and far less strenuous than the real thing!
