DAY 1 - Montreal
Welcome to the second-largest French-speaking city in the world, after Paris.
Like any great city, Montreal has 1001 attractions to offer visitors. Take the opportunity to experience the rhythm of its 5 main neighbourhoods: the Plateau Mont Royal, Old Montreal, Downtown, the Latin Quarter and Mont Royal Park.
Et voilà! You set out in the direction of La Mauricie National Park.
Covering an area of 536 km², this national park gives off an air of serenity in keeping with its gently undulating terrain and its variegated forests. On this wide plateau with its hills and valleys and network of lakes and rivers, life follows nature's rhythms.
Only the changing seasons mark the passage of time.
Today your route leads to Charlevoix, one of the most picturesque regions in Quebec.
In the very the heart of the Canadian Shield, the oldest rock formation on earth, Charlevoix abounds in one-of-a-kind attractions. Mountain waters cascade down the majestic Laurentians into the salty depths of the St. Lawrence River.
Don't miss your chance to take our black bear photo safari, where you will meet a real trapper and learn all about the black bear.
This morning you set a course for the spectacular Saguenay Fjord.
This majestic but little-known natural wonder will take your breath away and leave you with unforgettable memories.
Hiking enthusiasts won't want to miss the chance to walk the Sentier de la Statue trail in the Baie-Éternité sector of Saguenay Fjord National Park. The view of the fjord from the statue is spectacular.
The region is also home to two of Quebec's most picturesque villages, l'Anse-St-Jean and Ste-Rose-du-Nord.
Your adventure continues with the region of Tadoussac.
Tadoussac, the oldest village in Canada, is listed as one of the 50 most beautiful bays in the world.
But above all, Tadoussac is one of the best internationally renowned whale-watching sites in the world. You can hardly leave the area without going on a whale-watching safari!
Today you head for the beautiful and historic Quebec City, cradle of French culture in the Americas.
Perched on the cliffs of Cap Diamant and overlooking the St. Lawrence River, Quebec is proud to be a living museum and the only fortified city in North America.
Once you reach Quebec City, take the time to explore the city and its many historic sites. The entire old town is a UNESCO world heritage site.
DAY 7 - Quebec City
Take the time to explore the old capital and its many historic sites. From Place Royale and Petit Champlain to Dufferin Terrace and Château Frontenac, follow the winding alleys that will lead you to hidden places where you will have the impression that you are the first to discover them.
In July, the city's streets and parks are filled with music as Quebec's capital moves to the rhythm of the Festival d'Été.
