Day 1: Montreal to Quebec City

Our adventure begins with a friendly welcome from your guide and fellow travellers. This morning we visit Montmorency Falls, an impressive waterfall higher than Niagara Falls, before arriving in Québec City. The city is renowned for its historic defence walls, known as the Ramparts of Québec City. Be sure to climb this National Historic Site of Canada to enjoy spectacular city views and an unforgettable sunset. Tonight, enjoy a group dinner at the hostel and leisure time. (Dinner included).

Day 2: Montreal

Up bright and early for a day trip to Tadoussac alongside the spectacular Saint Lawrence River. We arrive at the small Francophone village of Tadoussac, one of Canada’s oldest permanently settled communities (initially founded by French-Europeans). Embark on a whale watching excursion, an experience renowned in North America for its diverse marine life. A mixing of freshwater from the Saint Lawrence River and saltwater from the Atlantic Ocean creates incredible biological diversity. Tonight, enjoy some poutine (Snack Bar is certainly recommended) to get a taste of local flavour; bon appétit! (Breakfast included).

Day 3: Montreal to Riviere-Du-Loup

After breakfast we’re heading back to your hostel in Montréal. The rest of the day is at your disposal! (Breakfast included).
