Located in East-Central Canada, Quebec is both cosmopolitan and diverse, and there are plenty of exciting activities and destinations that are suitable for families, couples or groups of friends. Whether you are looking for outdoor adventure or big city lights, Quebec has it all!
The official language of Quebec is French, though in most urban centers you will find plenty of English speaking people as well. Its people are as warm, vibrant and embracing as they are distinct in their culture. Its major cities (Montreal, and the provincial capital, Quebec City) reflect a European sensibility both in style and atmosphere. The far north is pristine and wild. Sparsely populated, it is mostly inhabited by Aboriginal peoples, although there are many wilderness lodges catering to those interested in canoeing, fishing and hunting activities. Travelers to Quebec can enjoy the best of both worlds: dynamic urban cities with excellent shopping, dining and world-class entertainment, as well as the many fun and unique activities that are reflective of French Canadian heritage and Colonial Canadian history, not to mention world-renowned destinations for skiing, boating, and camping.
