The vast province of Quebec occupies the eastern part of Canada, with coasts on the North Atlantic, Hudson and James Bays, and the Lawrence Seaway. The major cities of Quebec and Montreal are both situated in the more populated south, on the banks of the St Lawrence River.
In the most northern reaches, the wilderness prevails, with thick forests and clear lakes dominating the landscape. This gives way to the snowy mountains of the Laurentians, popular resort country, while down south is the urban sprawl of Canada's French-speaking cities and the rolling pastures of the farmlands. Quebec has 22 national parks and a variety of stunningly beautiful natural landmarks, including Montmorency Falls outside of Quebec City and the Gaspé Peninsula on the St Lawrence River.
Quebec has a uniquely French flavour and remains the only North American region to preserve its Francophone identity. In Quebec, French is the official language and is spoken by more than 80% of the population, so be sure to pack your dictionary for when you visit.
