Program #20505ENZ
7 Days | 6 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Active
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.

Program intended for grandchildren from 10 - 13 years of age.

Share the dazzling art and rich French heritage of Quebec City and Montreal with your grandchild during an adventure that begins in Montreal and continues by train through the surrounding countryside to the historic provincial capital of Quebec City. Delight in the art and architecture of these cities with local experts, ride a cable car to the scenic Montmorency Falls, learn the history of the Citadel and stop at local markets to sample produce. Attend a performance on the gigantic organ in Montreal's famous Notre Dame Basilica.


Highlights

• Explore Montreal Olympic Park, ride to the top of the tallest inclined tower in the world, and delight in the splendour and power of space at the Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium.
