Located in the French-speaking province of Quebec, Canada's second city boasts a wealth of 17th century buildings, beautiful gardens, bustling street markets and open-air cafés. It's most iconic site is probably the magnificent Notre-Dame Cathedral.Later we are going to head to the country's capital, Ottawa and get our bearings on a city tour.

  • DAY 6 Niagara Falls
  • Your day begins with a visit to Niagara-on-the-Lake, often described as Ontario's loveliest town. Then we're going to head to one of the greatest sights in the New World, the mighty Niagara Falls. You'll have plenty of time to explore and can choose how you want to view the thundering waters. One option is to take a boat ride, or perhaps you'll enjoy a unique view from below and behind, at the 'Journey Behind the Falls' attraction.

  • Stunning vistas appear at every turn in Banff National Park and you'll be keen to get out and explore. Snow-capped mountains, crystal-clear lakes, sparkling streams and swathes of forest are just some of the attractions, and the wildlife is equally as impressive. Look out for black and grizzly bears, wolves, elk and deer on land, then keep your eyes peeled for eagles, hawks and ospreys in the sky. There's plenty to see and do in Banff and lots of optional excursions to choose from. How about a cable car ride to the top of Sulphur Mountain or a helicopter flight over the Rockies.
