5 Days | 4 Nights
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

Enjoyed this program LAST year and after a bumpy travel experience getting TO Quebec, thoroughly enjoyed it. Sylvie and Andree are great group leaders.
Ellen Adintori Dec 03, 2014 at 10:30 PM

Great to know, Kathie, thanks!

Donna Lerew Aug 25, 2014 at 01:49 PM

We spent christmas several years ago at the Chateau Frontenac. It was wonderful. We hardly went outside in the snow at all - we had everything we wanted inside. Such great food and holiday spirit! I 'd do it again in a flash! Donna Lerew
Ellen Adintori Dec 03, 2014 at 10:31 PM

Sounds like you had a great time, Donna.

I'm arriving at 4:48 pm on the 22nd. I realize that's cutting it close.
Is anyone interested in sharing a cab from the airport? Linda Jessen
Kathie Epler Dec 19, 2013 at 12:25 PM

Contact Aila Long, she is arriving about 3:30 PM.

Aila Long Oct 21, 2013 at 09:13 AM

Do we know how many people have signed up for this program?
Kathie Epler Oct 21, 2013 at 09:23 AM

Haven't a clue. Must be enough that it has not been cancelled.

Kathie Epler Jul 15, 2013 at 11:52 AM

Will be arriving on 12/22/13 @ 11:30. Anyone want to share a cab?
Aila Long Oct 14, 2013 at 09:19 AM

Hello, My flight should arrive at 15:32pm on 22nd. Would be great to share a cab.
Kathie Epler Oct 14, 2013 at 09:28 AM

Sounds great! Really looking forward to this adventure.
Aila Long Oct 14, 2013 at 09:36 AM

Weather permitting I should be arriving on the 22nd at 15:35 and would love to share a cab.

Sorry I thought my first posting disapeared :(
Kathie Epler Oct 14, 2013 at 10:36 AM

Are you doing the New Year's one as well, or just the Christmas one? I'm doing both and leave on 2 Jan. Cab sharing then would be great.
Aila Long Oct 21, 2013 at 09:13 AM

I'm only doing the Christmas one.
Kathie Epler Oct 21, 2013 at 09:23 AM

Ok. I'm sure I can find someone for the ride back.
