A virtual vacation is the only kind many of us will get this summer. But one place worth exploring is dynamic Quebec. Checking out these virtual things to do in Quebec City can provide you with a romantic date night–or maybe a few! And it will also give you a few new ways to exercise your mind. (After all, thinking is one of the most important steps to getting sexy!)
Although you won’t be able to enjoy any of these Quebec City activities right now, they’ll all still be there waiting for you when you can get there in person. So even though we’re calling this our virtual guide, these things to do in Quebec City are all also worthy of adding to your future vacation plans.
Stroll through Old Quebec (virtually)
Plan a date night in Old Quebec! Watch this video from Quebec tourism to appreciate the sights and sounds of Old Quebec. Make a full Quebecois evening of it by creating one of the city’s signature dishes. Food Network Canada offers a roundup of their 20 favorite French Canadian dishes on their site.
And then you can round out your evening with some Canadian folk music. London Jack is streaming live music on their Facebook page.
Check out the views
Nothing beats standing hand in hand with that special someone taking in a spectacular view. Among the things to do in Quebec City, there are several spaces with world class views, many of which have gone online. Start at the First Nations boutique hotel where you can practically stick your feet in the rushing Akiawenrahk River. Their river view camera affords you several different views of this natural spectacle.
And if you’re craving more northern vistas, then you’ll want to take in the Panoramic Circuit created by the Montmorency Falls Park. Trust us, these views will have you putting this park on your bucket list!
Then enjoy a bird’s eye view from the Obervatoire de la Capitale. Their rooftop cam offers you views of the city from 221 meters above. (And when you’re able to plan your visit to Quebec City in person, the observatory will be waiting for you to feel the wind on your face as you repeat this field trip in person. Just check their website for opening hours as they do change with the season.)
One of the most famous things to do in Quebec City
One of Quebec’s most talked about attractions would have to be the Ice Hotel, aka Hotel de Glace. Normally only accessible in winter, (the Ice Hotel stays open from January through March), the hotel is now “open” year round thanks to modern technology. Possibly the most romantic place to stay in Quebec, the Ice Hotel now offers 3d-tours on the Hotel de Glace website.
Although not quite the same as being there in person, the tour gives you access to nearly the entire artistic masterpiece that is this hotel made of ice and snow. Just be sure to make yourselves some warming coffee cocktails before you start. So incredibly detailed is this up close and personal look at the ice hotel that you can almost feel the chill come through your screen.
If you fall so deeply in love with the experience that you want to visit the Hotel de Glace in person, check their most up-to-date website information for the next planned opening dates, generally January 2-the end of March each year.
