Whether you’re planning a conference, retreat, or corporate gathering in Québec City, one of the best ways to boost the success of your corporate event is by engaging your attendees. Consider scheduling some of these unique group experiences and team-building activities in the region that everyone will remember for years to come.

1. Circus School
Get your group out of their comfort zone by sending them to circus school. At the École de cirque de Québec, attendees aged 16–99 clown around in three-hour workshops and learn circus disciplines ranging from juggling and the flying trapeze to the trampoline, unicycle, tight-rope, and more. The school accommodates groups of up to 90 people at a time.

2. Via Ferrata
You don’t have to be a seasoned mountain climber to try via ferrata. This family-friendly mountain sport, originating from the European Alps, combines hiking with rock climbing and can be adapted to all levels and abilities. There are several great options in Quebec City for your team to come together and overcome their fears, including the high-speed chair rides and scenic suspension bridges of Canyon Sainte-Anne, the exhilarating zip lines of Montmorency Falls Park, or the breathtaking views of Projet Vertical.

3. Huron-Wendat Nation at Wendake
Give your team a unique window into the past and present of Québec City’s First Nations communities by visiting the Huron Wendat Nation at Wendake. This self-governing territory is brimming with outdoor and cultural activities, indigenous cuisine, local art galleries, and specialized craft shops. Your group can participate in the community’s Myths and Legends storytelling activity, held in a traditional longhouse, visit a traditional Huron site, or enjoy an authentic pow wow.

4. Moose-Watching Safari
At Forêt Montmorency, your team can observe the king of the forest in its natural habitat while on a moose-watching safari. Tours are offered at either dusk or dawn and are led by a naturalist guide. Participants learn to recognize signs of the moose’s presence, tracks, and mating calls, while also getting the opportunity to spot many other wildlife species such as porcupines, birds of prey, black bears, gray wolves, and the Canada lynx.

5. Dog Sledding and Ice Fishing
If you’re holding your conference or convention during the winter months in Québec City, consider fun outdoor activities such as dog sledding or the First Nations tradition of ice fishing. Glide through snow-covered forests and fields with the help of trained four-legged friends, and then try your hand at catching trout, yellow perch, or walleye from the comfort of an inflatable igloo at Village Nordik in the Old Port of Québec City.

With ample space for groups of every size and event planners to help you finesse every detail, you can’t go wrong with booking your next event at Hilton Quebec. While you’ll be only steps away from the heritage and culture of the city’s Old Town, there’s also plenty to do in the hotel itself, where conference delegates can unwind at the rooftop swimming pool, or take advantage of the hotel’s babysitting service if they’ve brought their family along.
