Quebec's Magical Christmas

Quebec’s Magical Christmas Markets

December 06 – December 11, 2023

Montreal and Quebec City are magical during the holiday season. Both cities host outdoor Christmas markets which recreate the charm and atmosphere of those in Europe. Featuring beautiful decorations, delicious treats, exquisite gifts and joyful performances, the Christmas markets have something for everyone. Join Atlantic Tours on this wonderful tour and get a taste of how Europeans celebrate the Christmas season, all without having to take a flight!

In Montreal, you’ll find Le Grand Marche de Noel/The Great Christmas Market. Quebec City is well known for its German Christmas Market located in the heart of Old Quebec. Both markets are best enjoyed in the evening with the lights all aglow. Maybe there will be a nice sprinkling of snow to add to the wonderful holiday atmosphere! In addition to the delightful Christmas markets, there is time to relax, shop and explore on your own.
