Scattered throughout the city are numerous malls, antique galleries, parks, gardens, and museums.
Day 3 - Toronto – Kingston (166 miles)
Collect your hire car and drive along the north shore of Lake Ontario to Kingston and, if time permits, perhaps take a short, late afternoon or evening dinner “Islands and Harbour” cruise. This provides a fascinating introduction to the sights and history of the 1000 Islands region as well as Kingston. Ontario's oldest city, Kingston was the first capital of the united Upper and Lower Canada before the National Seat of Government was moved to Ottawa in the 1840s.
Overnight (1): Kingston
Day 4 - Kingston – Montreal (195 miles)
Today’s drive takes you along the northern bank of the St Lawrence River across the provincial border into Quebec Province and Montreal. The suggested route passes Upper Canada Village, located just off Highway 401. It is well worth spending some time exploring this recreated village and its associated rural industries to gain an insight into some of the challenges and rewards of daily life in a small Canadian village in the 1860s.
Overnights (2): Montreal
Day 5 - Montreal
Montreal, situated on an island in the St Lawrence River, has been referred to as the ‘Paris of North America’, its history a rich backdrop to its vibrant multicultural life. Montreal has numerous festivals, beautiful botanic gardens, street fairs and innumerable terrace cafés where locals and visitors alike gather to socialize. The lookout on top of Mount Royal presents a superb panorama of the city and the Underground City, linking many buildings and malls, is a shopper's paradise.
Day 6 - Montreal - Quebec City (159 miles)
Travelling along the northern shore of the St Lawrence your route takes you further into the French-speaking province of Quebec. Quebec City, located on a spectacular promontory that towers above the St Lawrence, is a UNESCO world heritage site.
Overnights (2): Quebec City
Day 7 - Quebec City
Quebec City is the capital of the province of Quebec and the only walled city in North America. Full of historic old world charm and with a wonderful “joie de vivre” atmosphere, the city is located on the north shore of the St Lawrence River. Impressive views of the old port and city can be had from the Old Port Interpretation Centre. Visit the Old Fort, or take a horse drawn carriage ride down the cobbled streets of Old Quebec City with its quaint shops, bistros, and market squares.
Day 8 - Quebec City – Ottawa (274 miles)
Cross the St Lawrence River and drive parallel to the south shore to Montreal on the Trans-Canada Highway. Re-enter Ontario and, staying on the Trans-Canada Highway, head west to Canada’s capital city, Ottawa. On the way, try a lunch at a typical “sugar-shack” restaurant, a traditional Quebecois meal in a pioneering setting.
Overnights (2): Ottawa
Day 9 - Ottawa
The Capital of Canada, Ottawa is an architecturally stunning city with a unique combination of urban and rural experiences. The city’s museums, heritage buildings, parks, (Ottawa’s springtime tulips are a sight to behold) and monuments paint a vivid picture of Ottawa’s colourful past while also allowing a glimpse of its future. Visit the Notre-Dame Basilica, Ottawa’s oldest surviving church with its famous collection of statues, stroll the shopping malls, and take a trip on the Rideau Canal as it meanders through this historic city.
Day 10 - Ottawa – Huntsville (225 miles)
Heading west, today’s route crosses the Ottawa River at Pembroke and then takes you through Algonquin Park. Perhaps visit the Logging Museum, located at the eastern gate to the park, near Whitney, where the fascinating story of logging is brought to life.
Overnights (2): Huntsville
Day 11 - Huntsville
Spend today exploring this beautiful area. There are numerous walking trails in the Arrowhead Provincial Park, a few minutes from Huntsville centre. Also close to the centre is Muskoka Pioneer Village, a collection of almost two-dozen early homesteads, workshops, stores and other buildings typical of a rural ontario community in the period between 1860 and 1910. There are several golf courses, cycling trails (bicycles are readily available for hire) or you could try your hand at fishing in one of the many lakes in the area.
Day 12 - Huntsville – Niagara Falls (264 miles)
On your drive south today it is well worth taking the short detour to Midland to visit the 17th century fortress and headquarters for the French Jesuit mission to the Huron nation, Ontario's first European community at Sainte – Marie now recreated on the original site where its compelling story is brought to life once again. Continue south, driving through the orchards and vineyards to discover what has been described as ‘one of the prettiest towns in Canada’, Niagara on The Lake. Continue to one of the Seven Wonders of the New World - Niagara Falls.
Overnights (2): Niagara Falls
Day 13 - Niagara Falls
Rightly regarded as one of nature’s most impressive spectacles, Niagara Falls leaves an indelible memory of power and sound. Take a trip on the famous Hornblower Cruise boat to the foot of the thundering falls (waterproofs are provided, but expect to get wet!). For a very different view of the might and majesty you can walk below and behind the falls or perhaps take a helicopter flight over the area for a breath-taking panorama of both the Horseshoe and American Falls.
Day 14 - Niagara Falls to Toronto (88 miles)
Enjoy some last minute sightseeing and shopping before returning your car to Toronto Airport to catch your overnight flight back to the UK.
