At a Glance

The humpback, beluga, minke and blue whales that swim through the cool waters of Québec may be some of the largest creatures on the planet, but did you know these gentle giants spend their days snacking on two-inch crustaceans called krill? Learn these whale tales and more as you study whalelore in Québec with your family. Along the shores of charming French Canadian rural towns, observe whale species in their feeding grounds on marine safaris and from the shore. Run and play on the sand dunes on the St. Lawrence River, cool down in the spray of a gigantic water fall and make your own pottery just like aboriginal people did thousands of years ago.
