Canada – Historic District of Old Québec

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.
