Stroll the Old City

Québec City is a UNESCO World Heritage Treasure where the charms of Europe surround you.

Come wander cobblestone streets lined with centuries-old buildings, visit boutiques, art galleries, and antique shops, explore museums and churches from another age, contemplate impressive frescoes, and marvel at the majestic river flowing past below.

From quartier Petit-Champlain to place Royale, follow the enticing aromas wafting from bistros and restaurants. For passion and romance, Old Québec has it all!

Take a Carriage Tour

Ever dreamed of exploring the Old City in a horse-drawn carriage? Now's the time to try!

Pass under the city gates and admire the parks, monuments, and buildings that slip by as your driver recounts the stories and events that bring it all to life.

Picture it in winter—the two of you snuggled together under a warm blanket as snowflakes whirl. It's simply magical.

Go on a Water Excursion

Get away from it all for a while and see Québec City from the river like the early explorers did.

There are so many ways to do it during the Grands Feux Loto-Québec fireworks, or with music and a DJ at nightfall!

Or maybe you'd rather enjoy a gourmet dinner on board, with Cap Diamant glittering in the background? Unless you'd rather set sail for Grosse-Île or Isle-aux-Grues.

There's nothing like a water excursion for admiring Québec City at sunset, with the wind in your hair. Simply spellbinding!

Skate in place D'Youville

Skating hand in hand under gently falling snow—it's like a scene out of a romantic movie.

In Québec City, come play the leading roles yourselves in the idyllic surroundings of Place D'Youville, ringed round with the old walls (soundtrack included).

Forget about the excuse of “not having skates”—we rent them right there, starting in late October. And once your scene is done, you won't be able to resist the enticing restaurants right close at hand.

Skating in Place D'Youville is especially delightful during the Holiday Season.
