Walking the Fortifications of Québec City

  • Gary - Hi Rhonda,

    Great post. We enjoyed Québec City as part of our 2010 road trip around eastern Canada (or what we could fit into two weeks!)

Via Ferrata Climbing Adventure- Montmorency Falls Park, Quebec

Riding my bike from Quebec City towards Montmorency Falls, I excitedly anticipated doing my first via ferrata route. My enthusiasm was oblivious to the fact that I didn’t have a clear idea what exactly via ferrata was, only that it sounded like a fun adventure. So with no preconceived notions or expectations, I readied myself…

Winter Fun at Village Vacances Valcartier, Quebec

When I was in Québec City for the Québec Winter Carnival, I set aside some time to experience a few of the surrounding area’s winter activities. Aside from Carnaval itself, the most fun I had in Québec was at Village Vacances Valcartier, the largest winter playground in Canada. I spent the morning touring an elaborate…

Every year, the city proudly puts on the Québec Winter Carnival (Carnaval de Québec), one of the largest winter carnivals in the world. This celebration goes beyond your typical winter festival though. What makes this…
