Breathtaking scenery awaits on your escorted tour of Québec and the Gaspé Peninsula. Fall in love with this spectacular part of the world-from Montréal to Percé and the picturesque maritime ports in between. Begin with two nights in Montréal for guided sightseeing and free time to explore the second largest city in Canada. Follow the historic Navigator’s Route along the St. Lawrence River through Victorian villages, past lighthouses, and on to Miguasha National Park. This begins your grand tour of the stunning Gaspé Peninsula-the rugged, windswept sanctuary in the Gulf of St. Lawrence.

In Carleton-Sur-Mér, visit the strawberry fields above the seaside, and learn the art of making strawberry wine and liqueurs from the local experts. Explore historic sites where the original buildings from 1766 still stand, with the rich history of fishing, shipbuilding, and fisherman’s nets. Take an excursion to the seaside hamlet of Percé-named one of the most beautiful villages in Québec. Take a scenic cruise around the huge, sheer Percé Rock and Bonaventure Island. Observe the seabird colonies and marine wildlife and enjoy the history and geology of the heritage trail on Bonaventure Island. Hear the history of native peoples, and visit Forillon National Park, the old Cap-des-Rosiers lighthouse, and the sleepy fishing port of Grand Valleé before driving through stunning scenery to Matane-Gaspé’s shrimping hub. Stroll the 40-acre gardens at Les Jardins de Metis and enjoy lunch at its founder’s historic home.

Your visit to Québec includes a thrilling whale-watching cruise excursion in the Saguenay-St. Lawrence Marine Park. Return to Québec while stopping for culinary specialties and samples in a Fromagerie in the Charlevoix region. Celebrate your adventure with guided sightseeing in Québec, followed by a farewell dinner in Île d’Orléans inside a restored 17th-century flour mill. Travel to Montréal and bid bon voyage to the shore as you embark on a Holland America cruise on the Gulf of St. Lawrence. You’ll stop in historic, picturesque, and fascinating towns of Charlottetown, Sydney, Halifax, and Bar Harbor-then disembarking in historic Boston, Massachusetts.
