Thoughts on a journey to Quebec to kick off 2024?




Plans are in motion for my journey to commence in the heart of Quebec – Quebec City, where the adventure kicks off by strolling through the cobblestone streets of Old Quebec. From the iconic Château Frontenac, commanding views over the St. Lawrence River, to the lively Petit-Champlain district, each corner unveils a snapshot of history. The city's fortified walls and narrow alleys resonate with tales of French explorers and colonial settlers.


Quebec's culinary scene, a harmonious fusion of French gastronomy and local flavors, awaits exploration. My plan is to savor the quintessential Quebecois classic, poutine – a delightful ensemble of crispy fries topped with cheese curds and smothered in rich gravy. Further culinary escapades include navigating the bustling food markets like Marché du Vieux-Port and indulging in traditional sugar treats.


In the final leg of my journey, I'm eager to embark on an exhilarating winter adventure – an ice canoeing expedition on the majestic St. Lawrence River. Envisioning a thrilling blend of breathtaking scenery and the adrenaline rush of navigating icy rapids, this unique experience promises to be unforgettable. Picture a quick break on an iceberg, sipping hot chocolate amidst the frozen beauty of the river. This winter escapade adds an extra layer of excitement to the overall journey through Quebec, offering a perfect blend of culture, culinary delights, and adventure.
