Put on your skates (or those available for free on site) and take in the magical atmosphere of the skating trail on Quai Paquet (webpage available in French only), the longest refrigerated ice trail in Quebec! The trail lights up as soon as night falls, revealing a spectacular setting specially designed to showcase this emblematic site in Lévis. And this year, skaters will be charmed by the wood-burning fireplaces and background music, not to mention the rest areas where they can gaze at the view of Old Québec! It’s the perfect way to take a breath of fresh air!

Warm up your heart and soul!

End your day on a deliciously warm note by discovering local food and drinks! Located near Quai Paquet, Café Bonté Divine (website in French only) is the ideal place to sit back and revisit the day’s highlights with your loved ones. If you’re feeling bold, climb the red stairs or the Côte des Bûches (“log’s hill”) to get to Vieux-Lévis, the old part of town where newly opened Tambour Café and Bistro Bar La Barricade await. In the Lauzon neighbourhood, a visit to the Distillerie des Appalaches is a must to taste a vast selection of spirits and non-alcoholic beverages, including internationally acclaimed gins.
