A Land Called Winter
A Land Called Winter

Winter in Québec is an occasion for celebration, not hibernation. From November to March, spirits rise as the snow falls. Come join in the whirlwind of festivities, and see how Quebecers have found countless ways of making the very most of winter's many pleasures.

[winter scene] Gliding along cross-country snowmobile or basking in the silence on snowshoes-there's no shortage of ways to enjoy everything winter has to offer. It's also the perfect time to try something new: dogsledding, ice-fishing, collecting maple sap or seal-watching on the Îles-de-la-Madeleine..

You don't have to spend all your time in the great outdoors, either-winter in the city is full of things to do. Don your skates and take a spin around an ice rink, then catch a game of hockey, the national sport, to see how the pros do it. Window shopping is another favourite sport, especially in Montréal's underground malls. And then there are all the different carnivals and winter festivities!

Winter in Québec is hot!
