With a distinctly different culture, history and identity to the rest of Canada, stepping into the French-speaking province of Quebec can feel like entering a whole new country. The majority of this huge province is covered in rolling farmland and tundra stretching north into the Arctic Circle, but most Québécois people live in the cities, towns and villages nestled along the more temperate banks of the St Lawrence River.
The biggest city in the province (and the second biggest in the country) is the metropolis of Montréal, home to a third of all Quebec residents. Here, 21st century skyscrapers jostle for space amongst colonial era cathedrals including the stunning Basilique Notre-Dame. Heading out of the city, south-west Quebec is a natural beauty where travellers can hike, bike and ride in the summer months, or take to the slopes during the long, chilly winters. The Eastern Townships are at the centre of the artisan food industry, with vineyards and luxury fromagerie's harking back to the city's French roots.
