Program #21432RJ
11 Days | 10 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.
Embark on a journey through eastern Canada aboard the “Ocean” and revel in the charm of Quebec and the Maritimes. Setting off from the Island of Montreal, ride the rails through the lower St. Lawrence River valley to New Brunswick. Stop along the way to experience Quebec City, the natural beauty of the Bay of Fundy and the unique culture of Acadia in New Brunswick.


Highlights

• Discuss with a historian the history, settlement and cultural significance of French Canada while discovering cosmopolitan Montreal and 400-year-old Quebec City.
• See the unique collection inside the Acadian Museum at the University of Moncton, celebrate Acadian culture at a reproduction of an Acadian village and experience a kitchen party, a Miramichi tradition.
• In the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic in Halifax, survey the maritime history of Atlantic Canada, from the age of steamships to the Royal Canadian Navy to Nova Scotia's role in the aftermath of the Titanic.
