European Personality in the Heart of Canada

The recent 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics allowed the entire world to scrutinize Canada under the microscope and, without question; the nation stepped up and embraced the attention with open arms.

You likely won't find many people anywhere who couldn't tell you thing or two about Vancouver now. Yes, western Canada is officially on the map of world-class destinations, however we’re here to tell you Canada has even more to see and experience on the other side of the this glorious country.

The Supertrax team recently visited Quebec City, Canada - perhaps Canada's best kept secret - and were blown away with the city's charm, history and natural beauty.

In our well-traveled opinion, Quebec City is Canada's most charming, romantic and intriguing city and is a must-see destination for those travelers who expect to be dazzled.

Built along the shores of the St. Lawrence River, Old Quebec will make you feel like you're in Europe with narrow, cobblestone streets lined with beautiful buildings, shops and hotels hundreds of years old.

The city is alive with energy, even in the middle of winter hosting a long list of events like the famous Quebec Winter Carnival, the Ice Hotel and the Red Bull Crashed Ice Race to name a few.

You get a sense of history and style here and the warmth of the people who live in the community is something you really have to experience for yourself to truly identify with it.

The newly renovated Jean Lesage Airport is an impressive addition for the area and will surely be full of activity as more and more people discover the hidden gem that is Quebec City. Major international airlines fly in and out hourly, bringing passengers from all over the world.

Transportation from the airport to the city is literally minutes away so you can start your Quebec experience immediately after landing. By the way, the city itself is totally snowmobile friendly and just minutes outside of the urban center, you'll find a seemingly endless snowmobile trail system that’ll leave you breathless.

There's no excuse to miss out on one of the most extraordinary destinations you'll ever experience.
