Day 1: Arrival in Montreal

Welcome to the largest city in the province of Quebec!

Nestled between the majestic St. Lawrence River and the triple peaked hill “Mont Royal” Montreal, Canada’s most cosmopolitan city, is waiting to greet you. From the amazing underground city centre to the top of the Olympic tower, the excitement is everywhere.

Explore lively Sainte-Catherine Street, or historic Old Montreal with the well-known Basilique Notre-Dame du Montréal.


Day 2: Montreal – Saint-Sauveur/Saint-Hippolyte (ca. 80 km)

The Laurentian Mountains are “Montreal’s Playground”for outdoor sport and feature activities and dining in a superb forest setting. You may wish to walk, hike, rent a bicycle or just enjoy the many hills, forests and lakes that nature has to offer.


Day 3: Saint-Sauveur – La Mauricie National Park (ca. 180 km)

Follow the shore of the St. Lawrence River through charming Quebecois communities or take the direct route through the region the Montréalais call “up north”, past lakeside cabins and resorts. A jewel of this region is La Mauricie National Park with its splendid forest trails and canoeing opportunities.


Day 4: La Mauricie National Park

A day of exploration in La Mauricie, a national park which preserves the best of the Laurentian hills. Canoeing and hiking are good ways to enjoy the park, as are visiting the scenic viewpoints, or relaxing on a lake shore.


Day 5: La Mauricie National Park – Quebec City (ca.150 km)

Today, Canada’s most classical and historical city is welcoming you – Quebec City – the first in North America to be named a UNESCO world heritage site. Founded in 1608 by Samuel de Champlain, the city provides visitors with a wonderful blend of past and present.


Day 6: Quebec City

Quebec City’s cobblestone streets make an ideal setting for a walking tour to discover its beauty. Discover this charming city and walk alongside the majestic St. Lawrence River, one of Canada’s most important waterways. Explore the narrow streets of Old Quebec, the Upper and Lower towns, the Plains of Abraham, the National Assembly as well as the Parliament Building.


Day 7: Quebec City – La Baie/Chicoutimi (ca. 220 km)

Leave Quebec City and drive through the well-known Charlevoix area with its rolling terrain, headlands and bays. Today’s destination is the Saguenay Fjord which has a very high-flow rate and is partially bordered by steep cliffs associated with the Saguenay Graben. Tidal water flows upriver as far as Chicoutimi/La Baie and many Beluga whales breed in the cold waters at its mouth.


Day 8: La Baie/Chicoutimi

A highlight of your trip awaits you today: the unique Lac Saint Jean Region. Lac Saint-Jean is a large, relatively shallow lake in the Laurentian Highlands; it covers an area of about 1,003km2 and is 63 metres at its deepest point.

The area is known as the most impressive part of the Saguenay Region and a variety of outdoor activities are offered around the circular lake.


Day 9: La Baie/Chicoutimi – Tadoussac (ca. 150 km)

Today, you may follow either shore of the Saguenay Fjord south to Tadoussac. Scenic viewpoints overlook the river mouth and the surrounding Charlevoix Mountains.

Situated at the confluence of the majestic Saguenay Fjord and the St. Lawrence River, the village of Tadoussac is very popular for whale watching excursions.


Day 10: Tadoussac Area

Visit a replica of this post, the Saguenay Marine Park, or join an exciting whale watching tour in one of the world’s most beautiful bays (optional).


Day 11: Tadoussac – Baie Comeau/Matane (ca. 210 km)

Today follow the coast which gradually becomes more rugged as the St. Lawrence River valley enters the Gulf.

The route provides a dramatic view of the St. Lawrence River wilderness. Observe whales from the shore while a variety of seals and marine birds join in the show. The “Garden of the Glaciers” offers a unique multi-sensory experience that focuses on phenomena associated with the last ice age, climate change and the migration of the first peoples.

Depending on the ferry schedule overnight will be either in Baie Comeau or Matane.


Day 12: Baie-Comeau/Matane –Gaspé (ca. 300 km)

The Chic-Choc Mountains (hills which “rise up like a wall at the edge of the world”), have an ecology much like Canada’s North with moose and caribou. Forillon National Park preserves wild coastal landscapes and quiet fishing villages. In the afternoon you arrive at “land’s end” where you find the giant Percé Rock and Bonaventure Island, home to great seabird colonies.


Day 13: Gaspé

Further explore Forillon National Park, with its quaint fishing villages, hiking and cycling trails, and splendid views. Or visit Percé, with its famous pierced rock lying offshore, and Bonaventure Island, a famous nesting site for Gannets. An optional 1½ hour cruise takes you to the island.


Day 14: Percé/Gaspé – Bonaventure (ca. 200 km)

Your trip continues around the Gaspé Peninsula and you will have time to enjoy beautiful surroundings with magnificent sea and mountain scenery. Take the time to relax on a beach or to go for a short hike in the area.


Day 15: Bonaventure – Caraquet (ca. 240 km)

Drive along the north shore of the Baie des Chaleurs, one of the most beautiful bays in the world. You may also want to visit Miguasha Provincial Park which was designated a World Heritage Site in 1999 in recognition of its wealth of fossils. On leaving the Gaspé Peninsula, another French experience is just around the corner: l’Acadie and the Acadian coastline.


Day 16: Caraquet

Take a day to explore the picturesque town that is unofficially called Acadia’s capital by its residents. Caraquet hosts the annual Acadian Festival which takes place in the month of August. You may also want to visit the Village Historique Acadien, a historical reconstruction which portrays the way of life of Acadians in the 18th and 19th century.


Day 17: Caraquet – Miramichi (ca. 145 km)

Follow the Miramichi – Canada’s most famous Atlantic salmon river. This modern road tracks an old lumberjack route through the forested heart of New Brunswick – explore the old wood covered bridges that cross the river.


Day 18: Miramichi – Saint-Jacques (ca. 310 km)

Today you will cross Northern New Brunswick to make your way back close to the border of Quebec. Pass by the agro-industrial town of Grand Falls (French: Grand- Sault) which was named after the largest waterfall east of Niagara Falls, dropping from a height of 23 meters.


Day 19: Saint-Jacques – Chaudière-Appalaches (ca. 230 km)

Continue eastbound to the district of Chaudière-Appalaches, a gentle land of rolling woodlands and old farms in the river valleys. In the spring and fall, huge flocks of migrating snow geese visit the coast; while inland you can visit a “sugar shack” where original Canadian maple syrup is made.


Day 20: Chaudière-Appalaches – Montreal (ca. 350 km)

After breakfast, journey back to Montreal,the second largest French speaking city in the world.

Enjoy a final night in the captivating metropolis and savour the French-Canadian flair which you will never forget!

Today you journey to Montreal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport for your departure.

Do I need a visa to travel to the usa?

In most circumstances, no visa is required for travel to the USA for any British Citizen passport holder and many other European passport holders, whose countries qualify for the Visa Waiver Program (VWP). This program permits entry for up to 90 days for business or leisure purposes. Everyone must apply to use the VWP via the online Electronic System of Travel Authorization (ESTA).  Advice states this should be done online at least 72 hours prior to departure. On payment of the $14 fee this system usually issues an electronic confirmation within minutes but this is not guaranteed and there are certain criteria travellers must consider before applying via ESTA to use the Visa Waiver Program. Once granted the VWP authorization is valid for 2 years.

It is essential that everyone who plans to travel to the United States reads the information contained on the following page – Visa Waiver Program

Please note : From 21st January 2016 The United States implemented changes to the Visa Waiver Program (VWP) as part of the Terrorist Travel Protection Act of 2015. One of the major changes implemented in January excludes any British National who has travelled to Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, or Yemen since March 01st 2011 from using the Visa Waiver Program (VWP). Full details are contained on the above link but those affected will need to apply for a Visitor Visa with the U.S. Embassy before booking their travel arrangements.

You are advised to complete your ESTA prior to confirming any travel arrangements.

To use ESTA now please only use the following website – Official ESTA Website

Complete North America Limited cannot be held responsible for cancellation charges incurred by travellers who have booked travel and are subsequently unable to travel as part of the VWP or who are unable to obtain a Visitor Visa. If you have any questions after reading the information supplied above please speak to a member of our team.

Do I need a visa to travel to Canada?

British Nationals and travellers from other European countries can enjoy visa-exempt travel to and via Canada but must first use the online Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) at a cost of CA$7.00 per person. Most online applications are approved with minutes by email but the process can take longer particularly if supporting documentation is requested. An eTA is valid for 5 years and allows you to travel for up to 6 months on any one visit.

You are advised to apply for your eTA prior to confirming any travel arrangements.

For applications and full information on the scheme please only visit – Official Canadian Government eTA Website

Complete North America Limited cannot be held responsible for cancellation charges incurred by travellers who have booked travel and are subsequently unable to travel as part of the eTA scheme or who are unable to obtain a Visitor Visa. If you have any questions after reading the information supplied above please speak to a member of our team.

Nova Scotia Cabot Trail

We had a fantastic holiday in Nova Scotia. It was even better than we had expected. The weather was great, only one drizzly day & some very heavy rain one night when we were at Truro.
