Maple Explorer | From Toronto to Quebec City by Rail

Holiday Duration: 9 Nights

Overview

Overview

Journey to the land of maple trees by rail to discover Canada’s historic heartland. This holiday is especially spectacular when the maple trees turn red.

Start your holiday in Toronto, a vibrant multi-cultural city, close enough to Niagara Falls for you to take a day trip to this iconic landmark. In Canada’s capital, Ottawa, explore the national galleries, museums, historic sites, theatres, nightlife and shopping. Then travel on to Montreal and Quebec City to witness the French side of Canada. Montreal is the second largest French speaking city in the world, boasts fine cuisine and architecture, and is the birthplace of pure Canadian maple syrup! Quebec City is the only walled city in North America and its heritage is clear as you wander its streets.

This itinerary is flexible and can be tailor-made to suit you; if you want to add extra days in one area, extend the holiday or maybe change the direction of travel. Talk to one of our experts about how to make this holiday the perfect one for you.

"The journey you picked out was super."

Many thanks for another fantastic holiday. Firstly the wedding of our youngest son in Vancouver was a great day for us all. Everything went well and was very enjoyable. Thanks again for selecting a well balanced holiday. The car Jeep Grant Cherokee was only a week old and took all our luggage. The journey you picked out was super. Summit Lodge in Whistler was excellent. The guest house by the lake in Clearwater was one of the best we have ever stayed. Sandie and John were excellent hosts. The rooms and breakfast were fantastic. Wells Grey Provincial Park, is a real gem with fantastic waterfalls and great walks. Jasper was unfortunately a bit damp, but we managed to go on the sky tram after the rain and got some great views. On the way to emerald lake we went on the Brewsters Glacier tour which we all enjoyed. Emerald Lake lodge with the lake view was excellent. I think the views were better than Lake Louise!

Thanks again and look forward in using you again.
