In all of North America, there are few places more special to ring in the New Year than the winter wonderland of Quebec City. Among the snow-dusted cobblestones and monuments and centuries–old neighborhoods, experience the holiday customs, food, song and dance of French Canada, all while based in the heart of the Old Town at the incomparably grand Château Frontenac and with plenty of independent time to make your own discoveries. Enjoy a special lecture on the history of Quebec and view the prestigious collection of Inuit Art at the National Museum of Fine Arts.


• Spend four nights at historic Château Frontenac, and count down to midnight in a jubilant outdoor party as musicians and fireworks provide the entertainment.
• Enjoy a scenic carriage ride illustrating daily life in Québec, and enjoy several meals on your own to experience the varied and exciting Quebec City culinary scene.
• An expert discusses the fascinating history of the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec and its impressive collections, including 35,000 works dating from the 17th century to the present.
