Canada’s Québec province, where French is the official language, has an Old World flavor combined with areas of relatively undeveloped parks, agritourism, and picturesque villages such as those in the Charlevoix region, just an hour northeast of Québec City.

Stop 1: Québec City

Walk through the walled Old Town dominated by views of the Château Frontenac (a hotel). In addition to French heritage, Québec City celebrates its First Nations history, notably at the Museum of Inuit Art. Rent a bike at the Old Port Farmer’s Market and pedal the fourteen-kilometer loop along the St. Lawrence River to Montmorency Falls.



Veg out
For Russian-style banya (sauna) treatments, get a massage at Izba Spa. Vegetarians dine well at Le Commensal, a cafeteria-style buffet (860 Rue St.-Jean).

Historic digs
Artifacts from the Auberge St. Antoine’s past incarnations are artfully scattered throughout this luxury hotel, a history and archaeology buff’s dream.
