GLOBUS 2022: Quebec in Depth with the Gaspe Peninsula & Ocean Train to Halifax (CQE)
15 Day Tour from Montreal to Halifax
Who says you have to cross the Atlantic to dive into European culture? Croissant-scented cobblestone avenues are much closer than you think. Follow your nose to the cafe-lined promenades of Quebec City, your ears to the music-filled streets of Montreal, and your eyes to the sweeping views of the Gaspe Peninsula on this eleven-day tour of French Canada. Along the way, say bonjour to tiny fishing villages, giant beluga whales, and the grandest of views as you cruise around the imposing Perce Rock and the sensational Saguenay Fjord. From the banks of the St. Lawrence River to the cliffs of the gulf, your taste of the Old World awaits. Sip strawberry wine made from the fields by the sea, savor a 'Taste the Gardens' lunch at the famous Les Jardins de Metis, and visit a family-owned fromagerie in the rolling-hill region of Charlevoix. On this flavorful vacation to French Canada, you'll say 'cheese' in more ways than one. Wake up to the charming boats, buildings, and four-kilometer boardwalk in Novia Scotia's capital after catching your Zzzs on the overnight Ocean Train from Montreal. A visit to Peggy's Cove and its iconic lighthouse is another dream come true on this extension to your French Canadian vacation.
