Canada’s French-language heartland is an intriguing mix of old-world Europe and nature on a North American scale with vast mountain ranges, rivers and lakes. Its flagship cities — Québec City and Montréal — are good places to start. Beyond them lie boreal forest, gently sloping valleys, one of the world’s longest natural waterways (the Saguenay Fjord) and the craggy Gaspé Peninsula. Here, mountain peaks plunge straight to the sea, and you’ll stop at villages where locals greet you in a rustic Québécois patois. Our Canada specialists have journeyed and researched their way around this largely overlooked region, and they’ll use this experience to create your own Québec trip.

Québec City, QuébecOne of the great delights of touring Québec is discovering its Gallic-influenced gourmet produce. Our specialists can point you in the direction of artisanal cheeses, pâtés and chocolates in Charlevoix and La Malbaie. They’ll recommend the best walking tours for getting to know Québec City’s architecture, or the most rewarding walking trails in the forests and lakes of the Laurentian Mountains. You could look for moose in the mountainous Mastigouche Wildlife Reserve or beluga whales off Tadoussac. And, if you’re especially interested in the province’s European cultural heritage, you could explore the mansions and craft traditions of the Eastern Townships, whose inhabitants speak French but historically supported the British Crown.
