Planning to see Quebec this summer?

Here’s a follow up piece to help you plan your itinerary if you were lucky enough to grab flights at that amazing deal last week.

If you’re visiting Montreal, and have even 24 hours to spare, do consider Quebec City. It’s a short and convenient Via train ride between cities. And the feel, look and movement of the cities is completely different.

I love Montreal for the shopping and the sports and the scene. It’s so modern and cosmopolitan. Yet, when I’m wishing for a getaway from stress and work, I dream about Quebec City. Old Quebec is simply the most breathtaking Canadian tribute to our heritage. I fail to find words beautiful enough to describe the way I feel in Quebec City.

But enough about me. You should see it for yourself! Here’s a few links to help with the research. I hope you can build your own Quebec experience and love it too.

Bargain Alert! YWG to YVR

The hot deals disappeared on Monday. Back to $460 round trip. Had to act quick on that one.


$250, tax incl and return, sound like a nice price from Winnipeg to Vancouver?

Select dates available. (see calendar) 

We have New Leaf Airlines to thank for this. They have inspired Westjet (Prices shown are Westjet) to discount a few flights and match prices on this route.

Other cities included as destinations from Winnipeg are Abbotsford, Kelowna and Toronto.

Bookings available now, for flights July 25th, thru October, including Thanksgiving. Many of the cheap flights to Vancouver are actually non-stop. Bonus!

IF you find the right dates on flights to Vancouver or to Abbotsford you might be able to pair it with a discounted cruise to Alaska. Possibilities here are endless.

Not cold enough? $325 to Yellowknife

If you love winter and winter sports, you might want to take your ambitions north.

I’ve rarely seen such a deal on Yellowknife, NWT.

To my surprise, you can leave Brandon Manitoba at 6am and arrive just after lunch in Yellowknife. The Westjet service will cost you as little as $325 if you choose the right dates.  From Winnipeg, also $325.

If you’ve got a friend in Fort McMurray, Alberta do let them know of the sale on their destination as well. And ask them if it’s ever been as low as $313, taxes in, return flights.
