The majestic Fairmont Le Château Frontenac? Architectural treasures and over 400 years of history next to 21st-century modernity? Québec City is pitching itself and its je ne sais quoi as the next filming location for The White Lotus and we are here for it.

Robert Mercure, General Manager / Directeur of Destination Québec cité, listed 6 reasons why Québec City is the perfect backdrop for ‘White Lotus’ Season 3.

1. The most photographed hotel on earth

When it comes to settings, it doesn’t get any more iconic than The Fairmont Le Château Frontenac, inspired by the chateaux of France’s Loire Valley.

2. The majestic St. Lawrence

A natural scene stealer, the St. Lawrence River will allow the characters from Season 3 to make their grand entrance by boat.

3. A mysterious city

The narrow, winding streets of Old Québec will take you back in time—not to mention more than 400 years of history hidden inside the European-inspired architecture and fortifications.

4. The magic of winter

Québec City embraces winter like nowhere else, magically connecting with the magnetic north as soon as the first snowflake falls.

5. Wild at heart

Some of the most spectacular natural landscape in the world is a stone’s throw from Québec City.

6. More is more

Your US dollar will stretch further north of the border.
