Visiting Quebec City in the Fall

Visiting Quebec City in the Fall is a great destination to visit in the fall! The city and surrounding areas offer a variety of activities and events to experience during this beautiful season.

My sisters, Josee and Luce, and I embarked on a two-day trip to Quebec City, traveling for three hours to reach a stunning capital city advertised as “Europe without the jet lag.” 

While strolling through the neighborhoods, we felt transported to a preserved French old town at a fraction of the cost.

Visiting Quebec in the fall the weather is nice.

Montmorency Falls

We did a little detour to see the Montmorency Falls. Deceiving a bit, the road was close so we end up on top and missing the beginning of the trail to go up.

The falls are located about 12 km (7.5 mi) from the heart of old Quebec City. The area surrounding the falls is protected within the Montmorency Falls. There are staircases that allow you to view the falls from several different perspectives. 


A suspension bridge over the crest of the falls provides access to both sides of the park.


To cross the little bridges you have to wash your hand and wear your mask. The bridge is very narrow. Not many people visiting, but some peoples wear their masks under their chin!!

There is also an aerial tram (Funitel) that carries passengers between the base and the top of the falls but it was closed.

The location was great. The five hotels in the Nouvelle-France group are perfectly located to offer a wonderful stay in the heart of Old Quebec. Accessible by car, but parking is costly. Central location with great sightseeing, dining out, and shopping.


Friendly service and reception were okay. Great valet service. The room was very clean and also the bathroom.


The bed was ok but for me the pillows too hard. Our rooms have a touch of European historical charm. 


The wifi quality was good, no problem.


Breakfast was at another location in a restaurant and it was really good for free.

Old facilities and poor entrance area, but okay hotel grounds.

Beautiful architecture.

You might enjoy Quebec city during winter!!


From the hotel, you may go down the river and encounter a view of the ships on the St. Lawrence River, the massive Chateau Frontenac. 

If you wish to climb the stairs or take the funicular, you can easily walk to the colorful street of Petit-Champlain. 



There are many small shops, restaurants (I was there in winter, very nice) a three-story wall painted with a Quebec mural. Lots of up and down the little street, better wear good shoe.



While walking around, we found a cute little shop called 3 hens (3 chickens), I bought cooking items for my new hobby, taking pictures of food. The shop is located at 10, Côte de la Fabrique, Old Québec.
