“Jami was one of the first bloggers that we had chosen to partner with for our “Coastal Christmas” festivities – she set the bar so high for everyone who came after her! Her email communication leading up to the visit was thorough, and we easily agreed on the details of what was expected after she and the family spent the weekend with us. Jami was prompt on the delivery of the posts, and did a great job at documenting the experience in real-time on her social media accounts. She has continued to be an essential ambassador for our destination and we are thrilled with the work she has done.”

  • “Mom, look!” I followed my daughter’s outstretched hand to see she was pointing at the icy peaks of Bonhomme’s frozen castle. Our pace quickened as we knew we were close to this piece of Quebec’s history, only known to us through the lessons my daughter was taught at school. Our Ultimate Canadian Winter Road Trip may have been coming to an end but our excitement was still cranked high as we entered Carnaval de Québec, ready to explore everything that awaited us."

  • Are you an Anna or an Elsa? 👸🏼👸🏻 If the cold never bothered you anyway, you will definitely want to book your overnight stay at Hôtel de Glace. If you’d rather visit the ice castle than live in it, a day pass might be the way to go when you visit North America’s only hotel made 100% from ice and snow. Either way, this beautiful and unique hotel is one for the bucket list.  Read all about this world-famous attraction by clicking the link in my bio at @famtravelwriter.

  • Where can you find a snow tubing park like nothing you’ve ever seen before? A park that has 29 tracks—some that can reach up to speeds of 100 km/h? A place where giant tubes make it possible for you to race downhill with up to 12 of your closest friends? You will find all this and more at Les Super Glissades St-Jean-De-Matha.

  • We’ve all seen the photos. The ones on social media of amazing destinations that have you wishing on stars and birthday candles to one day see them for yourself. As we started our adventure at Skating Through the Forest Quebec, with the sun bright in the clear blue sky, casting shadows over the ice as it shone through the trees, I realized that this is one of those places.

The light bounced off the snow and ice, blinding and beautiful, but there was no warmth to take the chill out of the air. It may have been 25 degrees below zero as we laced up our skates but amidst our awe and excitement, we barely noticed the cold. Because there, just ahead of us, bordered by snow, was the most magical frozen trail into and around the forest… and we were about to go check it out.
