DAY 1 - Toronto
Welcome to Toronto, the Canadian metropolis also known as the "Queen City".
We wish you a great vacation in the land of lakes and rivers!
DAY 2 - Toronto
The bustling metropolis of Toronto: cosmopolitan, exciting and international!
Don't miss the city's main attractions, such as Bay Street, Yonge Street, the Ontario parliament, Chinatown and shopping at Eaton Centre.
Defining the Toronto skyline, the CN Tower is one of the Wonders of the modern world and one of Toronto's main attractions. Its observation deck is one of the highest in the world, at a dizzying 447 metres. Will you dare to walk across its glass floor?
DAY 3 - Toronto
Today you set out for the magnificent Niagara Falls, considered by many to be the eighth wonder of the world.
Your visit to the falls is sure to be one of the highlights of your trip; you will never forget their awe-inspiring power and beauty.
Don't miss the famous Hornblower boat tour, which will take you right to the base of the falls.
You head back to Toronto at the end of the day.
The adventure continues in our National Capital, Ottawa.
We highly recommend stopping off in the beautiful Thousand islands region. The best way to explore these 1000 treasures is with a boat tour on the St. Lawrence River
Nestled at the junction of three scenic rivers, Ottawa is considered to be one of the most beautiful capital cities in the world. It is a North American city with a bit of a European feel.
DAY 5 - Ottawa
During your day in the Canadian Capital, be sure to visit its most popular attractions, such as Parliament Hill, the Rideau Canal and ByWard Market.
Canadian history and First Nations culture buffs will want to visit the Canadian Museum of History, Canada's largest and most popular cultural institution.
This morning, you set a course for the 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 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 some time to explore the city and its many historic sites, such as Place Royale, Petit Champlain, Dufferin Terrace and Château Frontenac. The entire old town is a UNESCO world heritage site.
DAY 8 - Quebec City
Spend the day in the great outdoors in Jacques-Cartier National Park, with its magnificent landscapes characterized by stunning contrasts: mountainous plateaus fractured by steep-sided valleys.
The spectacular scenery of the Vallée de la Jacques-Cartier river valley includes a channel more than 550 metres deep through which the sparkling Jacques Cartier River winds its way.
Today you drive along one of the most scenic routes in Quebec to reach 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!
This morning you set a course for the spectacular Saguenay Fjord, via the north shore and its little-known jewels.
Your first stop is Baie-Sainte-Marguerite, an excellent location for observing beluga whales. A platform overlooking the mouth of the bay offers an ideal vantage point from which to watch the iconic marine mammal. An easy trail leads to the observation lookout. The site also offers a beluga interpretation centre.
A member of the Association of the Most Beautiful Villages of Quebec, Sainte-Rose-du-Nord is well worth a visit. Tucked into the hollow of a cove between two rocky escarpments, away from the bustle of the highway, this charming village is known for its scenic landscapes.
You reach your accommodation at the end of the day.
DAY 11 - 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 l'Anse-St-Jean, one of Quebec's most picturesque villages.
Next the adventure 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.
Today you head for Montreal, the second-largest French-speaking city in the world, after Paris.
Why not park your car and explore the streets of Montreal on foot, by bike or by Metro, like a true Montrealer?
DAY 14 - Montreal
A leisurely breakfast and a day off to explore Montreal.
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.
DAY 15 - Montreal
Enjoy the last moments of your Canadian vacation, before heading to the Montreal airport for your flight home.
It's time to say "au revoir" to the land of lakes and rivers, your hearts filled with beautiful memories that will last a lifetime!
