At a Glance

In the narrow streets, the sound of hooves on snowy cobbles keeps time as you peer out from your carriage at a world of decorated windows lit warmly against the winter air. Christmas approaches in Québec City, a 400-year-old gem of Old World ambiance right here in North America where you’ll enjoy four nights of yuletide learning. The city's most beloved landmark, the Chateau Frontenac, is your home as you discover traditional tastes of the season like "tourtière" meat pie and local delicacies made from maple, a fundamental Québec ingredient.
