Facts About Quebec
Information for Travelers
Quebec is a primarily French-speaking province in the eastern half of Canada.
This vast province that makes up about one-sixth of Canada and spans diverse landscapes with historic cities all the way to isolated arctic tundra.
To the south, Montreal and Quebec City are two lively cities connected by the Chemin du Roy, which follows the course of the Saint Lawrence River.
The region reaches almost the Arctic Circle to the north, borders the US
states of Vermont
and New York
to the south and Hudson Bay to the west.
The metropolis of Montreal is named after the Mont Royal mountain range, whose three peaks rise in its center.
The Saint Lawrence River, with almost 1,200 kilometers in length, crosses the most populous regions of the province.
While most visitors head to the two main cities, there are plenty of things to do across the province in summer and winter.
Historic sites, cultural institutions, festivals, small towns and beautiful parks and natural areas are just some of the highlights.
In Quebec City, founded in 1608, the former colonial core around Place Royale and the historic port (Vieux Port), now known for its nightlife, are still preserved.
