Best Time To Visit

Best Time To Visit

While summer is the most popular time to visit Québec, the weather can be surprisingly hot and humid and the lodging prices soar. For those who enjoy outdoor activities like hiking, cycling, and sightseeing, the best time of year for a pet friendly getaway is during the shoulder seasons of May, June, September, and October. Maple syrup shacks are Québec’s main attraction in early spring when horse-drawn sleigh rides glide over the remaining snow. Fall is the province's quietest season when visitors can admire the brilliant autumn colors, watch the migrating snow geese, pick apples, and take advantage of some of Québec’s most affordable lodging rates. Brave winter visitors can enjoy the ski resorts in Charlevoix and Mont-Tremblant as well as Québec City’s world-famous winter carnival.
