Quebec doubles for pretty much anywhere - Quebec is Canada’s largest province and home of arguably the “cheatiest” locations in the world. Three times larger than France and four times larger than California, Quebec’s remarkably diverse landscape and scenery make it possible to shoot in a variety of settings: urban or pastoral, modern or historical, North American, European...

Steven Spielberg pretended the city was Marseille, for George Clooney it was New York, Helsinki, Los Angeles and Philadelphia, and, perhaps most impressively, managed to turn Montreal to both Scotland and India. In the last few years, it has also stood in for Munich, Las Vegas, Rome, Ancient Sparta, Washington, Nevada, the Arctic, the Centre of the Earth and Beirut.

A compelling blend of Old World charm and North American modernity, Québec offers dramatic contrasts. Both Montréal and Quebec City have historical French and British-style buildings that blend in with the modern architecture of nearby structures.

Due to the sheer size of Quebec, it has a remarkable variety of landscapes, including fertile plains, the highest mountain chains in eastern Canada, more than one million lakes, and thousands of rivers. The St. Lawrence River is one of the longest rivers in the world and has a coastline that runs from west to east through Quebec. Quebec also has wide swaths of forest, taiga and tundra, as well as permanently frozen glaciers in the far north.
