Kids climbing the walls? Can’t wait for March Break? Québec City has tons of ways to keep them (and you!) playing, discovering, and exploring their creativity. Here are 5 great reasons to come for a visit:

  • 1

    Magic and Fun Just Like Disney

    Imagine a huge hotel made entirely of ice and snow. Now imagine exploring it with your kids. Québec City’s Ice Hotel is like something straight out of the movie Frozen! And while you’re in the neighbourhood, you might as well have the time of your lives at Village Vacances Valcartier, North America’s biggest winter playground.

    Experience Culture the Fun Way

    Québec City has lots of indoor activities and museums serving up fascinating exhibitions that bring the past to life and make art a thrilling adventure. Your kids will love spending time at Musée de la civilisation, and the Plains of Abraham Museum. And be sure to squeeze in a GeoRally at L’Îlot des Palais. It’s an interactive plunge into history in the heart of the Old City.

    Fill Up on Fresh Air

    Get ready for some truly, profoundly restful nights here—your kids will be more than ready for bedtime! Québec City has tobogganing, tubing, skating, skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, dogsledding, and more, for outdoor fun at every turn.

    Warm and Toasty Good Times

    Québec City is more than the Shangri-La of snow—it’s an incredible indoor playground as well. Whether your youngsters yearn to go swimming just like in summer at Bora Park, to enjoy one of the 18 phantasmagorical rides at the Mega Parcto explore the marine world at Aquarium du Québec, or to jump on enormous trampolines at iSaute, you'll find no-chill thrills at every turn.

    Fuss-Free Ways to Enjoy it All

    March Break is a time for kids to have fun, but parents might be equally interested in the break aspect—it’s in the name, after all! The Québec City area is also, as it turns out, richly endowed with resorts combining accommodations with lots of things to do, all in one place.
