Overview of Honeymoons in Quebec
A honeymoon in Quebec provides a taste of both Europe and North America, perfectly combined. During the summer months especially, the city comes to life as the ‘festival’ fever takes over. Quebec’s Summer Festival is famous internationally. However, the Winter Carnival brings thousands of people to Quebec in February, when this renowned event takes place. For those who enjoy winter time activities, November through February is the perfect time to plan a honeymoon in Quebec.
To guarantee an amazing and memorable honeymoon in Quebec, consider the following ideas.
- A sunset dinner cruise provides it all – a five course meal, live entertainment, and outstanding views of Old Quebec City from the St. Lawrence River.
- A leisurely stroll (or brisk walk!) along the top of the 4.6 km long old city wall will ensure breathtaking views of the St. Lawrence River, the city, and of course, the famous Chateau Frontenac.
- Enjoy a sunrise or sunset tour of the city and surrounding areas from your own private hot air balloon. What could be more romantic than snuggling up in a basket with your loved one?
North America weather
Make sure you choose the right time of year to visit North America for your honeymoon.
When to go:
Quebec’s climate is temperate and humid, and snow falls on average eight months out of the year. The best time to book your honeymoon in Quebec if you’re hoping for summery weather is sometime between July and October. The average daily temperature from June through August is from 20 to 25 degrees Celsius, but nights are often cooler. If skiing or skating, or walks in the snow are your thing, plan a visit for February and you can experience the famous Winter Carnival at the same time. Pack warm clothing, as winter temperatures often fall to 10 degrees below zero, or lower.
Air Canada offer flights from London Heathrow to Quebec taking around 12 hours with just one stop en route.
Visitors from the UK can enter Canada without a visa for stays of up to six months, as long as they are in possession of a valid passport. Fly directly into Quebec City’s own Jean-Lesage International Airport, or take one of the shuttles offered from Montreal-Trudeau Airport. A rental car is not necessary for those staying within Quebec, as an extensive public transportation system is in place.
