When to go to Quebec?
Quebec is beautiful in all seasons, but depending on your interests, certain times of the year are best. Here are some tips on when to go to Quebec.
High tourist season: mid-May to mid-October, mid-December to January, and February. Lovers of nature and the outdoors will certainly find their happiness at all times, but summer and winter are more suitable for outdoor activities. However, the magic of the colours in autumn (September and October) is worth a visit. In the summer, Quebec lives to the rhythm of festivals of all kinds, especially in June and July in Montreal and Quebec City. Although many major festivals offer year-round programming, summer becomes a pretext to transform streets, esplanades and parks into real open-air popular festivals. To live a total experience at the heart of the purest traditions of Quebec, winter is the perfect time to do so. Snowshoeing, dog sledding or snowmobiling, ice fishing, hockey, Quebec Winter Carnival... It is also the ideal season to taste traditional dishes such as tourtière, cipaille, stewed meatballs and other hearty dishes that will help you hold out during the cold. As early as March, a trip to the sugar shack is a must.
Low tourist season: mid-October to mid-December, January, March and April to mid-May. Between January and March, you can also enjoy the pleasures of Quebec winter, without the hustle and bustle of school holidays. A good plan to find yourself alone in the middle of nature.
