Québec is quite simply stunning, from the mountainous Laurentians to the jagged, windswept coastlines of the Gaspé Peninsula. Charlevoix is flat and agricultural with checkerboard farms. The landscape of the Far North is littered with untamed forests and parkland that give way to arctic tundra at the province’s northern corners.
In terms of temperature, the province is saddled with extremes. Montréal and Québec City can go from 40°C to –40°C in six months, and May could see a dump of snow. Generally, the summers are comfortably warm, although high humidity can make Montréal pretty steamy. Winters are very snowy, but usually bright, sunny and dry.
