Day 1 and 2: Toronto

The first stop on your tour of Eastern Canada is the Falls region! Toronto, which opens its doors to you for 3 days. The city’s architecture clearly shows its proximity to the American border. Tall towers and wide roads criss-cross the city. Here, we’re more likely to speak English, and drink a coffee with pancakes or a doughnut at Tim Horton’s! Once again, you’ll never get bored, as the city is full of places to visit and neighborhoods to explore.

What to see / What to do :

Explore Toronto’s neighborhoods: the financial district, Kensington market, Korean village, Distillery district; the Toronto Aquarium; feel like you’re in mini-New York at Yonge-Dundas Square; climb to the top of the CN Tower; sail to Toronto Island and marvel at the Skyline; see a Blue Jays game.

Includes: One admission per person to the CN Tower observatory.

Day 3: Niagara Falls

They need no introduction… Niagara Falls. A water frontier between Canada and the United States, they are just 01h30 from Toronto. Here, big, neon, colorful signs, a theme park setting, and American steakhouses! Tick off one of the boxes on your bucket list as you go sailing at the foot of the falls.

If you can spare the time, take a detour to the village of Niagara on the Lake, and take a leap back in time to the 19th century!

Includes: 20-minute cruises on the Hornblower, at the foot of the falls on the Canadian side.

Day 4: Ottawa

Now it’s time to leave the big city for the must-see sites of Ontario’s Outaouais region. You’ll pick up your car at the airport on departure from Toronto. Head for Ottawa, Canada’s capital, where you’ll discover: Parliament, the famous “Maman”, a contemporary sculpture of a gigantic spider, the Changing of the Guard of the Canadian Forces, the National Gallery of Canada, the Rideau Canal.

What to see/Do :

On the way, make a stop in Kingston, home to Fort Henry, a strategic point at the mouth of the Cataraqui River, overlooking the entrance to the Thousand Islands: here you’ll see all the islands of green that dot these waters…

Days 5 and 6: Mont Tremblant

Visit Quebec’s busiest winter and summer resort! Enjoy both the mountain and Tremblant village attractions: hiking, biking, kayaking on Lake Tremblant, golfing and fishing. Then take the panoramic gondola to the highest peak, the perfect way to enjoy the Laurentian landscape.

You’ll also find the typical colorful houses that dot the resort. Your accommodation is located at Lac Monroe in Mont Tremblant Park! Here, you’ll enjoy a typical Québécois camper setting, in a ready-to-camp setting.

Days 7 and 8: Saint-Alexis-des-Monts

You’re leaving the Laurentians for the Mauricie region. The heart of Eastern Canada, with its luscious, refreshing nature. You can drop off your suitcases in a charming, detached cottage ideally located at the foot of La Mauricie Park. With family or friends, take advantage of the lakes, rivers, waterfalls, cascades and hiking trails to discover this unspoilt natural area.

At sunset, set off on an exploration of the Black Bear!

What to see/Do :

Observe local wildlife, including black bears, at the end of the day, accompanied by a naturalist guide. (Watch out for mosquitoes!)

Days 9 and 10: Roberval and Saguenay

Cruise up the magnificent Saguenay fjords before reaching Lac Saint-Jean. Along the way, you’ll come across many small villages like Sainte-Rose-du-Nord, where you can stop to take in the local way of life and the beauty of the surrounding countryside. Stop off at Saguenay, from which the fjords take their name, where you can enjoy a wide range of activities on the riverbanks: canoeing, kayaking, via ferrata, or even the bicycle route.

You’ll spend your first night on the shores of Lac Saint-Jean, in Roberval, not far from the Parc Zoologique Saint Félicien. Then on to Saguenay, a major town in this grandiose landscape.

Day 11: Tadoussac

In the morning, you’ll set off for a small village typical of the province: Tadoussac. Here, the village is known for its prime whale-watching location. They are present from mid-May to mid-October. The months of August and September are ideal, as they are more numerous.

Includes: Whale-watching cruise from Tadoussac, by boat.

Day 12 and 13: Quebec City

We’re off to Quebec City to round off our trip in style! A town that has retained its authentic architecture and human scale. You won’t want to miss the Château Frontenac, perched on Cap Diamant overlooking the St. Lawrence. Much higher up, the 221-metre Observatoire de la Capitale, from which you can observe the city through its bay windows. Here, too, the old town has a charm all of its own, so take a stroll through its narrow streets… For nature lovers, visit Montmorency Falls.

What to see/do :

If your schedule allows, stop off at Isle aux Coudres, where you’ll be welcomed by the island’s “Marsouins”. To discover the history of the First Nations, visit Wendake, 20 minutes from Quebec City. The eco-museum tells the story of the American Indians.
