Original Christmas gifts

Vacation – everyone

Giving (full!) time to our children is giving an underestimated gift. You could book a full weekend away from your home and its thousand chores. You could also book a trip in a camp or a weekend in a cabin or an inn. Better even; give a theme (animals, chic, cooking, no technology…) to this great escape.

  • You can consult Go Canada for condos, inns and cabins suggestions. You will also find activities and family packages: winter fun, dogsledding and more.
  • Hotels and inns usually charge between $55 and $100 a night for a family (2 adults and 2 children).
  • A weekend in a camp with the whole family may be cheaper. Check out the Certified camps of Quebec Association website for an exhaustive list of all camps and activities available in Quebec.
