3 Things About Québec’s Montmorency Falls That Will Take Your Breath Away

Posted by Michael Johnson on Tue, Jan 14, 2014 @ 05:08 PM

We know what you’re thinking: “Waterfalls in Québec? At this time of year?! Have you lost your marbles?”

We haven’t lost our marbles … not yet at least. Whether it's January or June, the glorious Chutes Montmorency (Montmorency Waterfalls) is a must-see for any Quebec City school trip. Québec’s founder, Samuel de Champlain, named the falls after Henri II, duc de Montmorency, who served as the viceroy of New France in the 1620s.

Posted by Michael Johnson on Tue, Dec 24, 2013 @ 11:35 AM

Picture this: it’s the night before your trip to Quebec’s wintery wonderland and your room looks like a dog’s breakfast of wool socks and long johns. You sit on top of your suitcase and carefully zip it shut, and just as you’re about to pat yourself on the back for a packing job well done, that sinking feeling sets in and you realize: I forgot to pack underwear!

We’ve all been there before. Packing for a trip, particularly one that will take you into the heart of a Canadian winter, can be overwhelming. While you don’t always have the luxury of being over-prepared for your adventure, you certainly can’t afford to be under-prepared.

Luckily for you we’re here to help!
