Auberge du Mont invites you to take learning on the road! Four all-day field trips allow you to experience Québec first-hand. Begin by exploring the walled city of Old Québec by bus and then meander along these 17th century streets on your own. Visit the world-class Museum of Civilization and trace the story of Québec from New France to today. At St-Jean-Port-Joli, the Wood Carving Capital, meet a wood carver, visit carving exhibits and visit a maple sugar shack. Along the Beaupre Coast, the Cradle of New France, witness the inspiring architecture of the Basilica of Ste-Anne-de-Beaupre, experience the rural heritage of the Isle of Orleans and see geology in the making at Montmorency Falls.
