Quebec City, the Canadian province’s capital, is known for the cobblestone streets of Old Quebec, quaint shops along Petit-Champlain and historic architecture such as the Citadelle of Quebec. In the winter months, temperatures in Québec regularly drop to -0.4F (-18C), so we suggest warming up at one of these top spas in Québec City.
This stylish hotel oozes Quebec City culture with a charming mix of archaeological artefacts and modern amenities. The contemporary 24-hour fitness center features Finnish-style saunas and a yoga studio with free classes every Saturday morning. Book an indulgent massage at this spa in Québec, which only uses Canadian-based skincare lines. End the day with a relaxing movie in the private screening room.
In the center of downtown Quebec City, this property is near the city’s Unesco-recognized historic district and fortifications, so you’re sure to get in a lot of walking. This Québec City hotel with a pool and hot tub evokes a tropical, soothing atmosphere, thanks to thoughtfully placed palm trees and a small indoor tropical garden, complete with a waterfall. There’s also a fitness center and saunas, and in-room massages services are available on request. Unwind at night with one of the hotel’s live music or comedy shows.
Twenty minutes north of Quebec City lies this cozy resort, sitting on a private beach on Lac Beauport. The emphasis here is on well-being for kids and adults of all ages with a children’s playroom, adult gym, variety of lively fitness classes, seasonal outdoor pool and lake swimming in the summer. During the summer, you can also stay active with use of the property’s bikes, kayaks and paddle boards. In the winter, get the heart pumping with fat bikes, ice skating and snowshoe hikes.
One of Canada’s iconic “castle hotels,” the Fairmont Le Château Frontenac wows with its solicitous service and hilltop location overlooking the harbor. It’s also where locals go to indulge in an elevated spa experience in Québec with a treatment at Moment Spa Le Château Frontenac. The spa’s unrivaled views of the St Lawrence River ensures an entirely relaxing experience. You can also enjoy a dip in the indoor swimming pool all year round.
