Day 1

We'll begin the day with a 7:00 am departure from Belleville, making stops along the way in Kingston, Gananoque, and Brockville to pick up other passengers in our group.

Once everyone is on board, we will make our way to Sucrerie de la Montagne in Quebec. We will enjoy our included all-you-can-eat lunch buffet and a personalized visit of their maple syrup production facility around 11:00 am. Located in a forest of century-old maple trees, this sugar shack offers its guests a real experience into the past of Canadian history. After experiencing an authentic Quebecois Holiday celebration, we will continue our journey to Quebec City.

There will be a comfort stop at the Galeries St-Hyacinthe before we arrive at our hotel. We will check into the Hilton Quebec around 5:00 pm. Our hotel has excellent views and is the perfect place to stay while visiting the Carnaval. On Parliament Hill, the hotel stands guard over the heritage and charm of Canada's oldest city.

Dinner will be on your own tonight. There are plenty of restaurants right outside of your hotel but if you feel like staying close to your room, check out CABU. Located in your hotel, this vibrant and modern restaurant specializes in local food and is perfect for happy hour, dinner, or a nightcap. The rest of the evening is yours to enjoy at your leisure.


Day 2

Our day will begin with a delicious included full buffet breakfast at our hotel.

At 9:30 am we will leave Quebec City and head to the only Ice Hotel in North America. Built with 2,300 ice blocks and 30,000 tons of snow, this architectural marvel offers themed rooms and ice sculptures throughout the hotel. Each year the design is different and takes 6 weeks to craft. We will take a self-guided tour as we explore its 30 rooms, the Grand Hall, a fun zone with an ice slide, the chapel, and more. If you get thirsty, you won't want to miss your chance to have a drink at the ice bar before we leave the hotel.

At 11:30 am we will head back to Quebec City. Our motorcoach will drop us off at our hotel and the rest of the day is yours to take part in the Winter Carnaval festivities. Our hotel sits right across the street from the carnival; its super central location means that you can walk to all the activities and festival sites. It also offers spectacular views of Bonhomme's Ice Palace!

There are events sprawled out across the city including a night parade, snow sculptures, ice skating, sleighing, and more. The carnival is not complete without taking a selfie with Bonhomme; the proud and joyful festival mascot.

Lunch and dinner will be on your own today.


Day 3

This morning is yours to relax and enjoy your included buffet breakfast at the hotel. After we check out of our hotel at 10:00 am, our motorcoach will take us to the Chateau Frontenac for our included guided tour. Afterward, we will make our way to see the Ice Canoe Race. This unique Canadian experience is not to be missed while visiting Quebec City this weekend. The event extends a legacy that stretches back centuries; formerly an essential means of transportation in the winter is now a leisure activity for some. Join the cheering crowds as each team competitively paddles towards the finish line.

At 3:00 pm, we will begin our journey home. There will be comfort stops along the way including dinner on your own at the Galeries St-Hyacinthe.

After dropping off passengers in Brockville, Gananoque, and Kingston, our anticipated arrival back in Belleville is at 11:00 pm.
