Outside Old Québec, Québec City has many attractions to offer. Do not miss them, take your car or a bus and go on a journey to discover the beauties of our city and region.
Montmorency is the tallest waterfall in Québec. In the summer, you can walk on its trails, on its bridge or take the cable car to admire the magnificent view. In the winter, it is also open, and ice climbers are more than happy to take the challenge of climbing it from the bottom.
This picturesque island is only 15 minutes from Old Québec and it features farms, wineries, cheese and chocolate factories and more. Admire the architecture of the six towns and drive around the island by car or on your bicycle. Relaxing and peaceful!
In the winter, come and tour this building made of ice and snow, a unique concept in Canada. A 15-minute drive from Old Québec.
