Top 5 incentive experiences in Québec City

MNBAQ - Guy Rainville

Incentive experiences are an impactful way to engage attendees and boost the overall success of a convention or conference.

But how do you put together a one-of-a-kind activity that delegates will remember for a long time to come? If you’re planning an event in Québec City, consider some of these highly popular incentive experiences. 

École de cirque de Québec

At the École de cirque de Québec, attendees can clown around as participants in initiation workshops and learn a wide variety of circus disciplines, including the trampoline, juggling, unicycle, flying trapeze and tight rope (yes, you read correctly), and more! If you are looking to get your attendees out of their comfort zones, this is it!

Via Ferrata

Québec City abounds with options to try via ferrata. Via ferrata, originally from the European Alps, is a mountain sport trail that combines hiking and rock climbing. Circuits are adapted to delegates’ levels, including beginners, and equipment is provided. It’s the ultimate adventure for attendees to overcome their fears and work as a team!

Dog sledding and ice fishing

Holding a conference or convention in Québec City during the wintertime? Why not have attendees experience dog sledding and ice fishing? Only minutes from the downtown core, attendees can mush with packs of four-legged friends through snow-covered forests and fields. Then, have attendees try their hand at ice fishing (with no mosquitoes!). Various spots, including right in the heart of Old Québec, are perfect to catch trout, yellow perch and walleye!


Québec City has a rich history with First Nations communities, particularly the Huron Wendat Nation at Wendake. Wendake is brimming with outdoor and cultural activities, local art galleries and craft shops that provide a unique window into the past and present of the Huron Wendat Nation. Participate in the community’s Myths and Legends activity, held in a traditional longhouse, visit a traditional Huron site or enjoy an authentic pow wow.

Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec / Musées de la civilisation

For an insider’s look into the lives and art of Quebecers then and now, organize an activity at the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec (MNBAQ) or Musées de la civilisation. Both reputed museums offer guided exhibit tours and rental opportunities for a unique reception you can organize after hours. The Musées de la civilisation offer a kaleidoscope of exhibits on Québec heritage and the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec gives people an insider’s look into Québec’s art scene from different decades. Let attendees get up close and personal with Québec’s unique cultural fabric!


These are just some of the amazing incentive experiences Québec City has to offer! Your delegates are sure to be stoked, regardless of what tickles their fancy!
