Québec in the winter is a destination of undeniable magic. From the sparkling turrets of Old Québec to the snow covered, forested plains of the province’s countryside; Québec presents itself as an extra-special seasonal escape. If you’ve been looking for something a little different this winter, your search might just stop at this itinerary.
MAGIC IN MONTRÉAL
Landing in Montréal, be greeted by your private driver and allow yourself to be transported in style to your luxury digs at Le Germain Hotel. Just a few steps away from city highlights like the Montréal Museum of Fine Arts, you’re right where you want to be for hours of exploration. Once you’re settled in, it’s back out to the frosty streets to make the most of this hub of creativity before you move on.
Embark on a private winter tour to the top of Montréal’s namesake – Mont Royal. You’ll spend the first part of your day ice skating on Beaver Lake, followed by a snowshoe experience through the beautiful nearby wooded trails. From such a vantage point, the views you’ll enjoy of Montréal are unbeatable, and you’ll quickly feel like you’re in a true winter wonderland. After a warming lunch at an authentic local establishment, it’s back down the mount, but not before you’ve indulged your inner child on a wooden sled.Read more
ENTER A WILDERNESS
Wave goodbye to the cosmopolitan vibes of Montréal and get ready to immerse yourself in the beauty of Québec’s wilderness. The next four days will see you become an expert on a snowmobile as you race across blankets of snow by day and rest up in the cosiest of hotels by night. You’ll venture along glistening paths and turn off-piste for romantic lunches in the forest, all the while discovering the unadulterated beauty of the Charlevoix area. Then, after this four day adventure, ready yourself for yet more urban explorations in Québec City.
A FAIRYTALE CITYSCAPE
Québec City is the ideal spot to end your trip, as you’ll be able to load up on beautiful souvenirs and gifts at the many boutique shops that line the cobbled streets of Rue Petit-Champlain. With the city’s rooftops and pathways dusted with snow, the romance of the city will be undeniable. Finished shopping? Then drop your bags at your hotel and meet your private guide for an in-depth walking tour of the old city and its impressive walls. You’ll learn all about Québec’s colourful past and be guided down hidden pathways you may not have spotted on your own.
Finish your winter adventure with a truly unique experience – ice canoeing on the St Lawrence River. A tour that’ll be adapted to suit your individual fitness levels, you’ll be pushing your boat across the frozen parts of the river and paddling across the sections that have yet to ice up for up to an hour of wintery excitement. It’s an invigorating experience, and one we can bet most people at home won’t have been lucky enough to try. Hello bragging rights.
