Discover Québec – a Room with Many Views

Picture a room. A special room with an epic view. Now imagine that this is a room that transports you somewhere different each night and opens its doors to a sparkling new view each morning. The thing is you have no idea where you’ll wake up each day, what you’re going to experience or how it’s going to feel. Only that it’s going to be remarkable. Sounds like my kind of room!


This is what Glennis LaRoe and Kip Geddes experienced when they embarked on an incredible trip to The Canadian province of Québec. The adventurers had a unique way of travelling in their ‘room with many views’. Their little blue hut travelled by helicopter, boat, road and rail. Each morning the couple would wake not knowing what incredible views, landscapes and experiences awaited. What an incredible way to discover Québec.


Take a look at their adventure in the film A Room with Many Views. It’s full of unforgettable moments with a few surprises along the way.

Discover Québec

Québec is Canada’s largest province with 22 regions and a variety of experiences and adventures to be discovered. From waterfalls and whale watching, to ice canoeing and husky sledding or culinary encounters and culture quests, Québec Province is full of surprises.


National Parks, Mountains, Rivers and Lakes

Québec is truly a nature lover’s dream destination with no less than 24 national parks so that visitors can immerse themselves in the unspoilt wilderness.  Hikes teeming with flora and fauna can be taken on a choice of around 200 trails. Look out for black bear, moose and beaver.


If water’s your thing get out on the lakes and rivers and try kayaking or fishing amid the stunning scenery.  Head to the ocean for the thrill of whale-watching. In winter the scenery changes with the weather so swap those walking boots for snowshoes, cross-country skis or even a sled and huskies.

Quebec, Canada

Culture and the Arts

The French-speaking province has a vibrant culture and arts scene in the combined cities of Montréal and Québec City. With more than 430 museums and galleries culture vultures are indulged with a myriad of ways to explore the province’s history, art and architecture.


There’s a contrast of old and new architecture in Québec Province. Discover modern underground shopping centres and art in the Biodome of Montreal.  For history visit the old city walls and green copper roof tops of old Québec City. Check out the café scene, street art and the Québec winter carnival for street culture.


Culinary Encounters

Québec is a popular foodie destination with a range of restaurants, bistros and authentic dishes that reflect the character and people of the province. Influences from the French, the English and the first nation tribes have all had an impact on the flavours of Québec.

Alongside French favourites like Coq au Vin and French Onion Soup you’ll get a taste for some authentic local dishes.  Canadian Tourtiere is a classic meat pie. It’s made with ground beef and spiced with a delicious combination of bay leaves, garlic and spices. Every family and restaurant has its own unique recipe. Poutine will tickle your tastebuds. A pile of chunky cut potato fries loaded with curd cheese and a thick beefy gravy can be picked up from a roadside chip truck.


Québec has a nose for cheese and there’s even an inspired ‘route de fromages’ for cheese tourists! Local producers craft speciality soft cheeses. The province produces 70% of the world’s maple syrup so visitors with a sweet tooth can indulge their guilty pleasure. Dishes like Tarte au Sucre (sugar pie) and Poor Man’s Pudding will quell any sugar craving.

Excellent accompaniments to Québec’s gourmet pleasures are Ice Cider, artisanal wines and the craft beers produced in the area.

Discover Québec for yourself

Having watched the video I just want to pack my bags and experience Québec asap. If you’d like to recreate Glennis and Kip’s trip or want some wanderlust inspiration you’ll find more inspiration and trip themes on Québec Original.

     My favourite view in the video was Stone Pillar Lighthouse in Chaudière-Appalaches. What’s yours?

I'd love to visit Quebec, seems like it's a city that really is at one with nature and as I speak French I'd be right at home!

There seems to be so much to see and do - I especially love the nature and wildlife, oh and the food, and of course the culture...! Great that you're bilingual. I just have a smattering of French...

That's certainly a different way to see a place! I've loved my trips to Canada in the last couple of years but not managed to make it to Quebec yet – hopefully one day.
