With its beautiful architecture, picturesque parks and rich history, Quebec City becomes a winter wonderland during the holiday season. December and January usually bring the city nearly 60 inches of snow, fully covering the ground and creating the perfect winter backdrop. Whether you are in town celebrating Christmas or New Year’s, Quebec City is buzzing with activities. From skiing to ice skating, this cultural hub has plenty to offer during the chilly months.
One of the city’s biggest festivals makes the winter months even more attractive: the Winter Carnival. From the shimmering Ice Palace to the gigantic ice playground that covers the Plains of Abraham, Quebec’s Winter Carnival is absolutely amazing. You can enjoy snow baths, nighttime parades, snow slides, ice skating — pretty much anything that has to do with snow or ice. Besides the Winter Carnival, Quebec City is a great place to celebrate the winter holidays.
