Days 6-7
A true cultural mix is next on the agenda with a visit to Montreal - the second largest city in Canada. Enjoy the city's French culture, narrow lanes and quirky cafes. For adventure seekers, you can rip it up across the Lachine Rapids by high-powered jet boat. For the foodies amongst you, Montreal has some great cuisine to sink your teeth into. Why not try a local favourite, poutine? Delicious cheesy curds on thin French fries all topped with a thick gravy, yum! Or how about a ‘Reuben’ smoked meat sandwich, which is totally delicious and melts in your mouth? For a culinary adventure, Montreal's famous restaurant in the dark, O'Noir, will totally tickle your taste buds.

Day 8
Quebec City
It's time to enjoy some French culture in Quebec City, as you explore the streets of North America's only surviving walled city. Practice your French and embrace the European flair or get snap-happy around the historic Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Fuelled by warm pastries and scrumptious local cheeses, pay a visit to the Basilique Cathedrale - the Notre Dame de Quebec. With its gold interior and ornate carving, it's a majestic wonder definitely worthy of your time. The compact size of this city makes one night here easily doable, so get out and really discover this picturesque city.

Days 9-10
Acadia National Park
As you say au revoir to Canada, you head back onto US soil and make your way to the only national park in New England. Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island is beautiful all year round, but the colours really come alive in autumn so if you're travelling later in the season you could be in for a treat. It's time to get out there amongst nature, so hit the many trails for some hiking, biking, or choose to sea kayak amongst hidden coves. Enjoy the picturesque town of Bar Harbor and if you're a fan of beer, check out the local microbreweries.  

Optional activities:

  • Bike rental US$24-$30
  • Sea kayaking US$48-$58
