ITINERARY
Day 1: Arrive in Montréal, QC

Arrive in Montréal today and check in to your hotel. Montréal shines through every season and summer extends well into autumn in Montréal. Every night of the season brings a new band, award-winning film or dance troupe to the city and the outdoor venue Jardins Gamelin invites visitors to see free performances and sample food-truck specialties until mid-October. More outdoor entertainment, and a flurry of music, film, theatre, dance and art events, add a diversity of cultural experiences to an already transformative season. There will be time to relax and explore your neighbourhood before an evening briefing session and welcome dinner for our first taste of the amazing choice of culinary styles available.
Overnight: Montréal
Meals: Dinner
Day 2: Montréal - Mont-Tremblant, QC

On our morning sightseeing drive tour of the city, we will get an overview of the rich and diverse history of Montréal. Montréal is a metropolis filled with architectural icons, from the cross planted at the top of Mount Royal some seven months after the city was founded in 1642 by French explorer, de Maisonneuve, to the 21st century skyscrapers that reach skywards. One of the highlights of our visit will be to the majestic Notre-Dame Basilica of Montréal. Two of the world’s greatest singers have walked down the centre aisle of this basilica: global superstar Luciano Pavarotti, who performed his legendary 1978 Christmas concert here, and Céline Dion who married in the basilica in 1994. With its two soaring towers, Notre Dame is a splendid and dramatic example of the Gothic Revival style, with a grand and colourful interior filled with hundreds of intricate wooden carvings and religious statues. This afternoon, we will drive to the scenic Laurentian Mountains in southern Québec bordering the scenic St. Lawrence Seaway. As one of the oldest national parks in North America located in this region, the Parc national du Mont-Tremblant has countless hills surrounded by 400 lakes and six great rivers with unique sandy shores. The sheer size of this protected natural area makes it an ideal wilderness playground for nature lovers.

Free time after dinner to explore the pedestrian designated village centre on your own.

Time permitting, we will visit the magnificent Montmorency Falls, the world famous shrine of Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré, and view the pastoral farmlands on the romantic - Ile d'Orléans, this afternoon.

With more than two centuries of history, La Malbaie is considered the cradle of resort vacationing in Canada. It is here that the first white sailed ships with rich Americans on board arrived looking for beauty and a change of scenery that the region has become famous for.
