With Canada marking its sesquicentennial year, a visit to explore the centuries-old wonder of Québec City and a ride on the Charlevoix Train are ideal ways to celebrate.
Beginning just outside Québec City at Parc de la Chute-Montmorency, the Charlevoix Train is a magnificent way to experience a unique side of Québec that’s off the beaten path.
The tourist train, carving a 125-kilometre path through the scenic, seaside Charlevoix Region, provides views of sea, cliffsides and parts of the landscape that aren’t otherwise accessible by road. It’s also a great way for tourists to Québec to visit other areas without having to rent a car.

The train winds from Parc de la Chute-Montmorency to La Malbaie, passing through quaint towns like Saint-Anne-de-Beaupré and Baie-Saint-Paul, giving the chance to stop off and explore a bit if the mood strikes.
