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 excursions were also perfect"

I would like to thank whoever put together the itinerary, chose the hotels and wrote the information for us to use en route. Everything was excellent! Each hotel was very good quality, but very different from the others. We saw such a variety of things. Our information led us to places we would never have found without it. The excursions were also perfect (canoeing, whale watching, sea kayaking), each of them very small businesses but with very friendly staff. Everything was very remote, which is what we expected, but we were so glad that we found it and were able to enjoy the essence of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island. Overall, we couldn't fault anything and we would be very keen to use your services again in the future.
