Québec City and Montréal provide contrasting experiences. Québec City is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with a distinctly French flacour, attractive architecture, cobbled streets and destinations such as the Basilique Notre-Dame-de-Québec and the Vieux Port to explore. Look out too for the Château Frontenac set on a hill high above the St Lawrence River.
Montréal is surprisingly easy to explore on foot despite being Canada’s second biggest city. The bustling Vieux Montréal quarter has some splendid architecture and an old port to dally in. Art galleries, museums and botanic gardens are all also worth dropping in on.
Additionally, fly or drive along Highway 117 to Tremblant to explore the Laurentian Mountains, quaint mountain town and scenery here. During summer go rock climbing, canoeing or relax on the empty beaches here. In winter, explore the territory by dog sled or snowmobile and go skiing on the slopes surrounding the town.
