Québec City has a message for tourists: come see us later.

QuĂ©bec City Tourism has launched a new video campaign aimed at showing off the beauty, romance, and wonder of the province’s capital for people to explore from the comfort of their own homes as the pandemic rages on.

Several Visit Us Later videos will be shared across the city’s tourism channels, offering virtual events and activities throughout the winter.

“Although we have had to keep our distance over the last year and will need to continue to do so for the next few months, you have been in our thoughts,” says the Office du Tourisme de QuĂ©bec in a news release. “We miss you, and we hope to see you in 2021 to show you that our city is just as beautiful and welcoming as ever! We will meet again soon.”

Virtual events and exhibitions include the Tobbogan festival, concerts, and Quebec City’s renowned Winter Carnival.

At-home tourists can also check out the only ice hotel in North America, the HĂ´tel de Glace, which offers the public a “breathtaking winter experience” with its grand hall, chapel, 21 themed rooms, ice bar, and slide.

The capital will also stream a bird’s-eye view of the city in real-time from the top of the Observatoire de la Capitale, 221 metres in the virtual air.

“The QuĂ©bec City region wants to emphasize that great vacations are still possible even though international travel is not currently an option,” concluded the release. “This is the perfect opportunity to appreciate the beauty of QuĂ©bec City and enjoy winter — safely. The New York Times has urged readers to travel virtually to our beautiful destination, so take its advice and experience all QuĂ©bec City has to offer from the comfort of your home!”
