Old Québec City is the ideal jumping- off point to show students the great Canadian outdoors while also learning about Quebecois history, language, and culture.
The city itself is one of the few historical areas in North America to have fully preserved its Francophone culture, and its European feel has made it a favorite destination for French students.
This trip will explore the fortified Old Québec historical district (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), with highlights such as the Musée du Fort and the Citadelle. We will also take advantage of summer weather, venturing outside the city walls for a bike ride and daring zipline over the Montmorency Falls, kayaking on the Saint Lawrence River, and hiking in the Parc National de la Jacques Cartier!
