ITINERARY
Day 1: Arrive in Montréal

Welcome to Montréal, a stylish and elegant city with a distinctly European flair offering a vibrant mix of the old and new. Here you can immerse yourself in the French heritage of North America. Stroll through narrow cobbled lanes with 17th century buildings, quaint shops, galleries and sidewalk cafés. Montréal is a city with a thousand different flavours, from award-winning restaurants to ethnic food stalls and locally grown products.
Overnight: Montréal
Day 2: Montréal

Find out more about all the eras that shaped Montréal on today’s walking tour with an expert local guide, from the foundation of Fort Ville-Marie in 1642 to today’s modern city. The historic heart of the city and its adjacent Old Port will help illuminate the story of one of the greatest cities in the Americas. We will explore the birthplace of this metropolis and experience a special voyage back in time! This afternoon, we will take a short drive to Sucrerie de la Montagne, an authentic Québec “sugar shack”. Designated an official “Site du Patrimoine Québécois” (Québec Heritage site), the sugar shack, located in the midst of a 120-acre forest of century-old maples atop Mont Rigaud, will transport you back in time, providing you with a momentary glimpse of life as it truly was for Québec and Canadian pioneers. Activities vary by time of year, but you’re sure to enjoy the rustic charm any time you go. We suggest enjoying a hearty traditional Québec dinner while you’re here.

Day 4: Mont Tremblant – Québec City

This morning, we depart Mont Tremblant and make our way north along the Beaupre Coast , passing through traditional villages and farms along the way. As we approach Québec City we’ll stop to see the Hôtel de Glace (Ice Hotel), the only one of its kind in North America. Fascinating art and winter splendour greet you as soon as you enter the Grand Hall. You'll be awestruck by the hotel's rooms and themed suites which are decorated with majestic sculptures. Make sure to stop by the sumptuous chapel, where people from all over the world are immediately amazed by its magical ambiance. To add a touch of warmth to your visit, top it off with a delicious cocktail served in a glass made of ice! Québec is magical in winter time, and the same is true for Montmorency Falls, our next destination. In very cold weather, the fine splashes projected by the waterfall eventually freeze and form, at the foot of the falls, the famous Sugarloaf, a very impressive natural ice cone. Finally we will arrive in Québec City, a UNESCO World Heritage treasure. The city lies on the St. Lawrence River and is the oldest European settlement in Canada. The old quarter is the only walled city in North America. The remainder of the evening may be spent at leisure.
