Vieux Quebec

This location is actually a very old UNESCO site. It’s full of museums and restaurants.

On top of this it’s also home to horse-drawn carriages and traditional French architecture. If you have not given any thought to visiting this location yet then you should certainly give it a go.

Salon de jeux de Québec

The Salon de jeux de Québec is a must-see location if you have never been to Quebec before. It’s very popular with the locals and it gives you the chance to see the entertainment options up close and personal. If you don’t have time to visit this location then remember, it’s always possible for you to visit a Canadian online casino instead.

Watch Whales in Tadoussac

This location is a bucket-list adventure for anyone who enjoys whale watching. You can choose which kind of boat you want and you can jump and find a good viewpoint from the shoreline. If you are very lucky then you may find that some of the marine animals break the surface and give you a spectacular display. You won’t want to miss out on this if you’re in the area.

Climb up Mount Royale

Montreal stretches across the horizon and if you go up to the lookout at Mount Royale then you will be able to see it all. It’s 200-hectares large and it is in the middle of the city. There are many viewpoints and there are also a lot of walking trails.

Omega Park

This safari park is home to a huge range of wildlife. You also have various elk, bison and even black bears. This park is open all year round and you can also feed some of the animals from your car as well. You can pick up some food from the entrance and this is a great way for you to see the wildlife in their natural location.

Montmorency Falls

This is actually over 30 metres higher than the famous Niagara Falls. It’s a sight to behold in almost any season and on top of this, it’s very impressive in winter. Icicles cling onto the chute and if you are a visitor then you can explore the area on foot if you want. You can climb the Via Ferrata and you can hike along the cliff.

Magdalen Islands

Did you know that you don’t need to go to the Caribbean if you want to experience white idyllic sand? If you want to take in the scenery then you will want to pay a visit here in summer if you can, as it will give you the chance to get the clearest views. You can also see the sand stretch for miles, which is remarkable to see.
