Canada: The Route of Quebec

Canada: The Route of Quebec

OVERVIEW
Our 8-day "Canada: The Route of Quebec Tour" will introduce you to the cities, traditions, cuisine, natural & cultural heritage of this beautiful province. Quebec is a unique place among North American tourist destinations. Its French heritage sets the province apart from most of its English speaking neighbors. Quebec is also one of the few historical areas in North America to have fully preserved its Francophone culture. With its European feel, history, culture, and warmth Quebec has become a favorite tourist destination both nationally and internationally.

HIGHLIGHTS
See robust 105-kilometers long Saguenay Fjord, one of the few fjords on the eastern coast of North America.
Get impressed by Montmorency Falls that are one and a half times higher than the Niagara Falls.
Discover the rich architectural heritage of Montreal - the second-largest French-speaking (as a mother language) city in the world.
Watch whales directly from the shore or the boat around Tadoussac.
