Add To Plan

Mother Nature reigns supreme in the pristine countryside surrounding Quebec City, and you'll be in the heart of it on this magnificent tour.

Starting off from the pier, you will head outside of the city limits and into the idyllic French Canadian countryside. Riding through the foothills, you'll see the majestic Laurentian Mountains in the distance, the St. Lawrence River below, and the wonders of nature all around. Upon reaching serene Lac-Beauport, a scenic lake surrounded by emerald forest and frequented by outdoor adventurers, you'll stop for photos.

It's a great introduction to the natural beauty that lies ahead at Montmorency Falls, which thunder down 275 feet into the St. Lawrence River. Explorer Samuel de Champlain named the falls for his patron, the Duke of Montmorency, and it's a memorable tribute as the falls are 90 feet higher than Niagara Falls. The views are stunning from the elegant Montmorency Manoir, where you may enjoy tea and pastries, before crossing the bridge to the Island of Orleans. At its southwestern tip, facing Quebec City, you'll visit Sainte-Pétronille, a village that has been a fashionable summer resort since the 19th century. Of course, Canada is synonymous with maple syrup, so you'll also stop at an authentic sugar shack to learn how maple syrup is made and to sample sweet maple taffy.

Afterward, rejoin your coach for the relaxing and scenic drive back to the pier.

Please note: Walking on this tour is mainly at the guests' discretion during the stops. There will be various gradients and surfaces to negotiate. The tour is available to wheelchair guests who have a collapsible wheelchair, are able to make their own way on and off the coach and have an able-bodied companion to assist them. Scooters under 60 lbs. are permitted. Those with mobility concerns are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. Rain resistant layered clothing and flat, comfortable walking shoes are suggested. The tour sequence may vary and dependent upon congestion at Manoir Montmorency, tea and pastries may be served at the sugar shack instead.
