The below itinerary is only a suggestion, we offer tailor-made personal service and solutions to help you plan your perfect vacation.

Day 1 Arrive Montreal
Upon your arrival in Montreal, transfer by private vehicle to the Ritz Carlton Montreal. The historical birthplace of the Ritz-Carlton name, this newly renovated hotel is located on the golden square mile in the heart of downtown, within walking distance to an array of upscale shopping, fine dining, cultural venues and renowned nightlife. The hotel features a 3-Michelin-star restaurant, afternoon tea in the garden, and an indoor rooftop pool. Spend the rest of the day at leisure to enjoy the sights and nightlife of Montreal. Montreal offers a fascinating mix of both the French and English cultures. Some of the finest shopping and dining in North America awaits you.

Day 2 Montreal (Private Walking & Culinary Tour)
Accompanied by a professional guide, this gastronomic walk will help you to discover the culinary, cultural and historical charms of the oldest district of Montreal. Hosted in old warehouses and showrooms of the 19th century, some food boutiques open their doors to allow you taste their delicacies. Through small and narrow cobblestone streets, the guide explains the influence of the Amerindians and the nuns on our food habits and how the venue of the World Expo in 1967 brought exotic food to our tables.
Continue on to explore the history and architecture of Old Montreal. Your professional guide will take you to Place d'Armes, Place Jacques Cartier, Notre Dame Basilica, Rue Saint Jacques, Notre Dame and Saint Paul, City Hall, Bonsecour Market only to name a few.

Day 3 Montreal to Saint-Alexis-des-Monts
This morning, transfer by private vehicle to Saint-Alexis-des-Monts, located in the heart of Quebec, and bordering Mastigouche Wildlife Reserve. Your next two nights will be in a very tranquil setting located within 25,000 hectares of parkland with over 15 lakes, Auberge du Lacà-l’Eau-Claire is a real jewel in nature’s crown. Originally an outfitter, welcoming hunters and fishermen in cosy chalets, this country inn has become a destination resort offering a variety of outdoor activities.

Days 4 - 5 Auberge Lac-a-l’Eau-Claire
Spend the day relaxing by the lake, walk the many trails whilst observing the flora and fauna, or relax and enjoy the fine gourmet menu, featuring regional specialities.

Day 6 Saint-Alexis-des-Monts to Quebec City
After breakfast, transfer by private vehicle to Quebec City. Heading southeast towards Trois-Rivieres you will be driving along Lac Saint-Pierre, which is an important nesting area for herons (highest count of herons in North America). It is also an important stopping point for waterfowl. Your journey will continue along the Saint Lawrence River all the way to Quebec City. The Saint Lawrence River connects the Great Lakes with the Atlantic Ocean and it is the primary drainage of the Great Lakes Basin.

Auberge Saint Antoine is located in the heart of the Quebec City's Old-Port, facing the majestic St. Lawrence River, a few steps away from the ramparts, the museums, and the bustling streets of le Petit Champlain. More than a boutique hotel, Auberge Saint-Antoine is a window on Quebec City’s past. Hundreds of artifacts from both the French and English regimes were discovered during an extensive archaeological dig on the property and are now on display for guests to enjoy. The day is free to discover Quebec City. As you explore the winding side streets, on foot or in a horse-drawn carriage, the romance of the city will enrapture you. It's the only fortified city in North America, and history comes alive as you stroll through its oldest neighbourhoods and tour its museums and historical sites.

Day 7 Quebec City (Private Helicopter flight and Walking Tour)
This morning, embark on a private helicopter flight above the city and surrounding countryside. The sky is the limit! Discover Old Quebec City and its fortifications, the Chateau Frontenac, and the Plains of Abraham. Be the privileged witness of the landscapes of Côte-de-Beaupré and the magnificent Île d’Orléans, then fly over the Montmorency Falls and watch the cultural heritage built along the St. Lawrence River. Continue your flight out to the Parc national de la Jacques-Cartier, host to one of the most beautiful valleys in Quebec, the spectacular Vallée de la Jacques-Cartier. The Jacques Cartier River, calm in some places and turbulent in others, has sliced a 550-metre- deep channel into the plateau. A coniferous forest dominates the high plateaus, and deciduous trees people the deep valleys. Aboard our luxurious helicopter, nature is both inspiring and serene. Enjoy a sparkling wine and lunch then head back to Quebec City.

In the afternoon, explore the sites of Old Quebec on foot with a professional guide. Over the course of approximately two hours, the tour covers the architecture, major events, and the Quebec people's history. Meanders next to historical sites such as the Citadel/Musée Royal 22nd Régiment, Chateau Frontenac, Quebec fortifications, Place Royale, and uncover many hidden Quebec sites! The rest of your day is free to enjoy the many small boutique shops and restaurants dotted throughout Old Quebec.
