Having a Nice Night Out

Go for a drink in one of the craft breweries or in a bar de chansonniers (a bar with live folk music) is a must while in Québec City. For enjoying an outdoor drink streetside or dancing the night away in a trendy club, there's nowhere like Grande Allée!

Away from the more touristy areas, mingle with the local population and make friendly meetings in the various lively neighbourhoods

Sliding at Village Vacances Valcartier

Winter and summer are both great for extreme sliding at Village Vacances Valcartier, where you’ll find Everest, the highest accelerating slide in North America! In summer, Turbo 6 will shoot you into the water at over 60 km/h! And in winter the most intrepid thrill-seekers will enjoy the 4 different slides of Himalaya.

Village Vacances Valcartier is just one of the Québec City area’s many places to enjoy sliding with friends.
