Getting to Québec
There are three major international airports in Québec:
Passengers arriving at Montréal-Trudeau can travel by shuttle to downtown Montréal, Ottawa (3 to 5 departures per day), Mont-Tremblant (from mid-December to mid-April and from mid-May to mid-October) and Québec City.
Québec borders Ontario, New Brunswick and Newfoundland-and-Labrador. What’s more, Montréal and Québec City are just a few hours’ drive away from cities like Ottawa or Toronto.
If you’re coming from New Brunswick via highway 2, stop by the Infotouriste centre in Dégelis (Route 185). From Ontario via the 417, stop in Rigaud (highway 40) or, if you’re driving up the 401, Rivière-Beaudette (highway 20).

Pleasure boaters from Ontario can get to Québec via the St. Lawrence Seaway or the Ottawa River, while those sailing from the Maritimes will take the Gulf of St. Lawrence.
During sailing season, some 2,000 pleasure craft of every kind use the Seaway. These vessels must measure at least 6 m in length and weigh more than 900 kg. Docks and berthing areas are reserved for their use.
Québec, Montréal and Saguenay are favourite stopovers for the major cruise lines that sail the St. Lawrence from May through November. Nine ports of call in Québec welcome passengers who set off from Halifax (NS) or St. John’s (NF) to discover the mighty river.
