Day 2 Québec City, QC

We continue our journey towards Quebec City. Steeped in history and charm, lights, decorations, and snow create an enchanting setting like no other within Old Quebec. Transforming it into a real Christmas village, just like out of Charles Dickens’s novel – “A Christmas Carol”.

Day 3 Québec City, QC

This morning we visit the Port Market. Experience the authentic old-world charm of a German Christmas Market, complete with timber kiosks, in the heart of Old Québec. Enjoy a unique and friendly atmosphere, beautiful decorations, a great selection of delicious products, exquisite Christmas gifts and so much more. Continue to search out that one of a kind gifts at Boutique de Noël near Chateau Frontenac, the perfect spot to find some incredible and unique holiday treasures! Then, step inside the Chateau Frontenac, symbol of the city and the world’s most photographed hotel to enjoy the magnificent, magical holiday decorations! Is it any wonder CNN ranked Québec City among the world’s top 10 destinations for celebrating the Holidays? As darkness falls, a step on guide joins us for a tour of the Lights. Later, a special dining experience! The historic Maison Jacquet, one of the largest houses in upper-town in its day and the oldest in Quebec, was built in 1675-76. The site was granted to François Jacquet on November 30, 1674 by the nuns of the neighboring Ursuline Convent. Its thick walls, solid joints, marvelous wainscoting and recessed cupboards are characteristic of the houses constructed during that period. Though it is contradicted by history, the myth persists that General Montcalm also lived and died in this famous house. Since 1966, it has housed the restaurant Aux Anciens Canadiens, internationally known for its fine cuisine. (B,D)

Day 4 Cornwall, ON

Later this morning we take a trip outside the city to Montmorency Falls where, in very cold weather, fine mist from the falls freezes and eventually forms the famous Sugar Loaf, an impressive cone of ice at the foot of the waterfall. Enjoy a view of the falls and time to take some pictures before we make our way to Manoir Montmorency, perched high atop the hill. From here you have a spectacular view of the St. Lawrence River and the Ile d’Orleans. A delicious lunch is included at the Manoir before we say goodbye to Quebec City and make our way to Cornwall for the night. (B,L)
