Quebec City in the Winter

Quebec City in the winter definitely requires a few extra layers, but the snowy urban scenes are totally worth it.

Picture; hot steaming cocoa from charming French cafes fronted with frosty windows, horse-drawn carriages clickity-clacking around the cobbled streets, cartoon-worthy birds chirp(ity-chirping?) and puffing chimneys in the first rosy hues of a late winer sunrise.

That is Quebec City in the Winter. But, enough of the descriptions.. behold this wintry goodness:

Roaming gnomes like to snow tan in Quebec

    I’d love to visit Quebec City in winter! These photos are magical. It kind of reminds me of Stockholm—I visited in winter, and everyone asked me why I would ever want to do that. Frigid temperatures aside, cities like this take on a different feel in wintertime, and I love it!

      Haha, agreed. I love winter and there are a lot of cities that are just so much prettier at that time of year. I would love to visit Stockholm in the winter :]

    I loved the look of Quebec City when I visited in the early fall, but it looks even more charming covered in snow!

    I visited Quebec twice in high school for French club. It was in the winter. I loved the city and hope to get back there in the future.

    This literally looks like a winter wonderland! I’ll be moving to Canada at the end of May and staying for a year. Will definitely be visiting Quebuc in the winter time thanks to these photos!

            Just in time for TBEX! Are you going? There were some good tours offered that would help introduce you to the city.

    Just in time for TBEX indeed! I wasn’t planning on going for money reasons but someone had a spare ticket so offered it to me. Very happy about that! Yeah I saw they have some tours going on so might check them out. Looking forward to spending lots of time exploring with friends too 🙂

    Wow! Amazing pics. They remind me more of Europe than North America, though.
