It’s all about timing. To avoid crowds and inflated prices, we recommend the period between high and low seasons when the weather is fine, places are still open and happy to welcome travelers, and you can explore a destination at your own pace. ShermansTravel experts call this magical time and space continuum the Sweet Spot.

When to go to Quebec City

Peak Season: June to September

Locals and visitors alike are out in the streets in droves during the warmer months. Attractions and hotels are busy but package deals are widely available.

Off Season: November to April

This 400-year-old fortress city sees tourists aplenty for February’s Carnaval, but by March, wild weather tames the crowds and hotel prices drop. The intrepid can overnight at the Ice Hotel, open till April. Spring ski deals abound at nearby Le Massif.

Sweet Spot: October; May

In May, the weather is still unpredictable and so it can feel like you have the city to yourself. October is also quieter after the summer rush but one of Quebec’s most popular festivals, the Sacred Music Festival, keeps it from being a ghost town.
