Road Scholar
Program #12684ENZ
7 Days | 6 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderate
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.
From beluga, humpback, minke, fin and perhaps sperm whales, discover the rich cetacean diversity in the St. Lawrence River, fueled by the upwelling of krill near Saguenay Fjord while never far from shore. Drive through the remnants of a 350-million-year-old meteorite crater and experience the quaint charm in the cultural and historical heart of French Canada set in rural Tadoussac. Discover Quebec City as you explore its vibrant culture, historical architecture and European charm.


Highlights

• Learn about whale behavior and identification at the whale research station from local experts.
• Numerous chances to view whales in one of the richest and most diverse cetacean feeding grounds in Canada’s first and largest marine sanctuary.
• Immerse yourself in Québecois culture with excursions that explore the artistry, old cities and farming villages.

Activity Notes

Walks up to one mile; boarding and disembarking boats.
