Canada 3: Montreal and Quebec

Canada  3: Montreal and Quebec

Tour two of Canada's most historic and cosmopolitan cities: the island-city of Montreal, famous for its international appeal; then to Quebec to join in its annual Winter Carnival. First stop is Montreal, North America's largest bilingual city; where French and English both are spoken with ease. Food is an important part of Montreal life, and there are culinary treats for everyone, from gourmet French restaurants to delicatessens and pastry shops. No visit to Montreal would be complete without a trip to St. Catherine's Street where shopping is supreme. Other attractions include ice skating, visiting the Natural Sciences Museum and Polar World. Casino nightlife is always popular, but be sure to end your visit here with a romantic carriage ride through Old Montreal to view the architecture. Our tour continues to Quebec and the world's largest winter carnival. First begun in 1894 by French settlers to celebrate before Lent, the carnival has grown into an important event for both tourists and locals, with activities and fun that lasts for 11 days. Visit such events as snow bathing, axe throwing, and wood chopping competitions. Enjoy a delicious maple syrup snow cone while attending a highlight of the Winter Carnival, the International Snow Sculpture Event, with participants from around the world. Before you leave the city, take a break from the carnival's activities and visit one of Quebec's main attractions, the Chateau Frontenac, one of the most photographed hotels in the world. Built overlooking the Saint Lawrence River, the hotel provides spectacular views from all vantage points. 02/08DE IJSCA 30 min.
