Experience the splendor of French Canada’s countryside as you drive into the foothills of the Laurentian Mountains to the renowned Lake Beauport area. Surrounded by emerald forests, a photo stop will be made to view the beauty of the lake and mountain scenery. Continuing toward the Beaupre Coast, a stop will be made at the magnificent Montmorency Falls. Cascading down a 272-foot (83 meter) cliff, Montmorency is one-and-a-half times as high as Niagara Falls. Coffee, tea and pastries will be served in the Montmorency Manor.
Take a step back in time as you cross the bridge to the Ile d’Orleans where you’ll take a scenic drive through the picturesque villages of traditional rural Quebec. Passing the tip of the island, see the lovely 19th century resort homes of Quebec’s rich merchant class with spectacular views of the skyline of the city. The Quebec area is well-known for its production of maple syrup therefore, during the tour you’ll have the opportunity to visit an authentic sugar shack, learn about the production of the island’s maple products and sample the sweet maple taffy.
