Luxury holidays in Quebec

Areas in Quebec

When to go

Visit in the last week of June or first week of July to make the most of the Montreal International Jazz Festival, the second week of February to take part in frosty fun at the Quebec Winter Carnival, and in late August to take to the skies during the Gatineau Hot Air Balloon Festival. Québec is warmest (and busiest) from July to September, and suitable primarily for sled-dogs and parka-piled-people from November to March.

Getting there

  • Planes

    Direct flights from across the US and from major European hubs – Paris, London, Rome and others – as well as domestic flights from across Canada land at Montréal–Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport and Québec City Jean Lesage International Airport.
  • Trains

    Via Rail operates a service that runs between Québec City and Montreal, then on to Toronto and Ottawa.
  • Automobiles

    The roads are easy to navigate and there’s plenty of car hire company choice at airports and in cities; go for a four-wheel drive if you’re visiting during snow-filled Canadian winters.
