Europe Next Door
Coming to Québec City is experiencing a slice of Europe, all within the familiar confines of a North American city.
Former capital of New France, of British North America and current capital city of the province of Quebec, the Quebec City is graced with a natural beauty thanks to its strategic position on the Saint Lawrence seaway, exactly half-way between the Gulf of Saint Lawrence to the east and the Great Lakes to the west.
The French Canadian language and culture has been sustained and nurtured for over 400 years. Visitors are immediately struck by the friendliness of the people, surprised that there are people who speak French and sometimes, very little English, and charmed by the European-style living.
No matter your group or study interest, Québec City is your blank canvas, offering an integrated international and cultural setting found no where else on the continent. Geography plays a large role in the overall experience: skiing, snow-shoeing, snowmobiling, or dog sledding in the winter. Hiking, canoeing, camping and swimming in the spring, summer and fall. Why not include an retreat for your group at one of the many national and provincial parks. Or perhaps a multi-night stay, « study and play » at the world’s largest research forest, only an hour from the city.
