Bonhomme’s winterland is a winter park in Quebec city, Canada. This winter theme park is part of Quebec winter carnival that takes place during first two weeks of February every year. Bonhomme‘s winterland is located in the center of Quebec city at the Plains of Abraham urban park. There is an entrance fee, it was $15 in 2015. This fee buys you an entrance pass (Effigy) which helps cover the costs and also serves as a nice souvenir.
Bonhomme’s winterland offers many winter activities for both kids and adults. Grown ups will enjoy trout ice fishing, bathing in hot tub at arctic spas, sleigh or dog sled rides and of course trying one of the special drinks from an ice glass sitting at the ice bar. There are several winter street food places to have a break.
Quebec winter vacation is a unique experience and a great winter travel idea. Quebec winterland park also exhibits ice and snow sculptures. These works of art are amazing and will add great winter pictures to your collection. These snow sculptures are probably made by the same artists that make sand art at the beaches in summer time.

The giant foosball game is always busy. Hockey is of course as special game for every Canadian. People in Quebec are crazy about hockey. So they set up two outdoor hockey arenas to have winter fun.
