Venture East to Québec and Newfoundland
Journey to the heart of Québec on this 12-day Québec Luxury Tour, ending on Fogo Island. From the charming cobblestoned streets of Old Montréal and Québec City to the region’s wilderness-enclosed resorts, you will find it impossible not to fall in love with this eastern region. Plus, three days off the coast of Newfoundland promises the perfect cherry on top to this unique luxury Canada tour by Ker & Downey.
First begin your Québec Luxury Tour with two days in Montréal. Spend an afternoon wandering Old Town with your private guide, seeing iconic attractions, and hearing tales of this storied city. You will also have the chance to embark on a street art tour, where you’ll discover hidden murals and graffiti art. Along the way, stop for samples at a micro coffee roastery, goat cheese maker, and the open-air Jean-Talon Market.
Next, continue your Québec Luxury Tour in Lac Sacacomie, an isolated oasis surrounded by enchanting forest. Upon arrival by seaplane, head to the bears and beavers observation area for a private visit. Indeed, two days here affords plenty of options to explore nature. Go kayaking to the middle of the lake or hike under leafy forest canopies. You can also participate in a Trapper Trek followed by a trapper’s lunch around the fire pit. Furthermore, try your hand at Tomahawk throwing and archery. Finally, hop aboard a pontoon for a private journey on the lake, including a special wine and cheese tasting.
Board a seaplane yet again to Seigneurie du Triton situated in La Tuque. Built in the 1800s, this eco-lodge has hosted dignitaries like Winston Churchill and Franklin D. Roosevelt. Activities abound here, including canoeing and paddle boarding, guided hikes and cross-country biking, mushroom or berry picking, and viewing resident black bears. You will also indulge in a special six-course gourmet dinner followed by a torchlight canoe ride on the lake to observe the sky above. On your final day, head out with a private guide for a fly-fishing excursion complete with BBQ shore lunch.
Your Québec Luxury Tour then continues with an adventurous journey to Québec City. First, embark on an early-bird expedition to a moose habitat, where you’ll seek the iconic Canadian mammals. Then travel to Baie St. Catherine for a thrilling whale watching experience. Finally, your private driver will take you along the pretty Charlevoix coastline to Québec City. You will stay at a prestigious family-owned Relais & Chateaux boutique hotel for two idyllic nights. During this time, visit the artisanal hub of Île d’Orléans, where you’ll sample handcrafted delicacies and visit local artisans. You will also stop at a beautiful vineyard for dessert and local wine.
Finally, your luxury Canada tour travels to Fogo Island for three memorable days. Situated off the tumultuous Northeast Coast of Newfoundland, Fogo Island is a remote haven for artistic expression and spectacular natural forces. While here, stay at the radical and bold Fogo Island Inn, a linear structure perched along the North Atlantic coastline. Here, the floor-to-ceiling windows immerse just 29 guests into the sprawling sea and sky beyond. Once you can tear yourself away from this exceptional property, you will have the chance to explore Fogo Island. Meet talented craftspeople, participate in a traditional boil-up with the community, track caribou as they graze the land, stargaze, and explore 400-million-year-old rocks with a resident geologist. There are also opportunities to fish for cod, pick berries, or lounge in an outdoor hot tub and watch the raging ocean.
