The Ulverton Mill was an opportunity to witness a rare piece of the pre-industrial development in Canada and the last woolen mill with machines still working in Quebec. The Blanchette Mill, is named in 1906 after its principal owner and introduced visitors to pre-industrial methods of wool production and processing. Guides comment and tell visitors about the daily life of wool workers in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The permanent core collection and tour consists of eight 19th-century industrial machines that are impressively demonstrated. Currently, they are the only museum in Canada that still has working traditional wool processing machinery. The Mill recreates the atmosphere of a late 19th century workshop, a "shop". In addition to being a unique interpretation site, the Ulverton Woolen Mill also offers the population a reception hall with an exceptional cachet. More than 5 km of walking trails along the Ulverton River, in addition to having a specialized boutique, educational activities for the family, as well as being a reference in the world of textiles. It is a place of research on industrial mechanical know-how. The Canadian Railway Museum continues the legacy of the passionate volunteers who made it possible to preserve and enhance Canada’s rich railway heritage. In 1978, the Government of Canada named Exporail as Canada’s specialized railway Museum and since 2007 Exporail has worked to have the Government of Canada carry out this motion of parliament to recognize it as Canada’s National Railway Museum. On the 175th anniversary of the creation of the railway, may Canada’s Parliament designate Exporail a National Museum and thus pay homage to all those who worked to create the unique legacy that helped build Canada. The museum shows the history of the railway in Canada through activities and original train models.

If the tour is classified as a 'Tour of Distinction’ only up to 18 persons may join the tour and many 'Tours of Distinction' travel with 12 to 18 travellers.

What are Guaranteed Departures?

After dreaming about travel to an exciting destination, arranging for time off work, booking your flights the last thing you need is for your trip to be cancelled. Anderson vacation's pre-Guaranteed tours take the uncertainty away from planning your travel and give you peace of mind to book our tours. Pre-Guaranteed Tours are group tours that we have already confirmed as certain to travel on the specified date. All 'Guaranteed Tours' will travel except in the event of a natural disaster or a catastrophic event that is beyond our control. They may already have the minimum number of people booked or else are tours that are known to be popular. Only select departures of tours are 'pre-Guaranteed'.

What happens if I book on a tour that is not Guaranteed?

We pride ourselves on providing “a small shared group experience.” In the event that we have fewer than ten participants on a tour we will offer a “small-group surcharge” to ensure that the tour runs as scheduled. This fee, which is up to 15% of the “land” portion of the tour, will be offered to you as an option to continue with the trip. This fee will cover the costs associated with handling a smaller group.

What is the average age of passengers for this tour?

Our tours are suitable for all age demographics. The average age of travelers is typically 45+.

How physically demanding is this tour? Are you able to accommodate people with mobility restrictions/limitations?

Some tours are mainly coach based and may not be physically demanding while others may require walking inclines or on rough surfaces to access interesting locations. Please check with us and your booking agent carefully and discuss your mobility restrictions before completing any tour booking to ensure this style of travel is right for you.

Can you accommodate passengers with dietary restrictions (food allergies, vegan, vegetarian etc.)?
