Ottawa & Quebec City

Discover city landmarks, scenic countryside, and fabulous Canadian culture in two iconic Canadian cities – Ottawa and Quebec City. Spend your first night in the Nation’s Capital, where our downtown hotel offers easy access to the Byward Market and the shops of the Rideau. Then it’s on to La Belle Province.

Ride the train from La Malbaie to Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré past magnificent farmsteads and picturesque rolling hills. Once in Quebec City, stroll the narrow streets and squat boutiques of Quartier PetitChamplain. Steps from our hotel, museums, galleries, and fabulous eateries fill your soul with old-world charm and Quebec’s joie de vivre.

While in Quebec City, we’ll visit the Albert Gilles Copper Art Museum, which showcases a century of renowned metal craftsmanship, and displays work by local artisans. Take the gondola above towering Montmorency Falls for breathtaking views. The quaint Île d’Orléans Bilodeau Cider House Orchard serves us cider and sparkling wine to taste and take home. We end with a sweet finale: an authentic maple sugar shack tasting and lunch at Sucrerie de la Montagne, a Quebec heritage site set in the heart of an ancient maple forest.
