Day 1: Arrive in Boston

Welcome to Boston! At 6 pm, meet your traveling companions for a welcome drink. Your Tour Director will prepare you for your upcoming adventure.

Day 2: Boston-Franconia Notch State Park-North Conway

Enjoy an orientation tour of Boston including Boston Common, the State House, and Faneuil Hall. Depart Boston for New Hampshire and the scenic White Mountains, New England’s greatest range and premier outdoor playground. At Franconia Notch State Park, board the Cannon Mountain TRAMWAY for a thrilling ride to the 4,080-foot summit. On a clear day, you can see the mountains of four states and Canada! Also enjoy a RAVEN INTERPRETIVE WILDLIFE PROGRAM focusing on the endemic flora and fauna. (B, D)

Day 3: North Conway-Stowe-Vergennes

Depart for a beautiful drive to Stowe, stopping for a tour at a  MAPLE SYRUP FARM, where you’ll learn the art of making maple syrup and enjoy a local treat. Continue to Vergennes, overlooking Lake Champlain with views of the Adirondacks and Green Mountains. (B, D)

Day 4: Vergennes-Shelburne-Montreal

Visit nearby SHELBURNE HERITAGE PARK, which exhibits one of the nation’s most extraordinary collections of American decorative, folk, and fine art. It showcases buildings from around New England and New York, including an 1890 railroad station, a lighthouse, a stagecoach inn, and an Adirondack lodge. Travel northwest to Montréal, Canada’s second-largest city. As Montréal has a unique mix of historical, natural, and cultural offerings, you may like to visit Old Port Montréal, the McCord Museum, or stroll around Mount Royal Park. (B)

Day 5: Montreal (Embarkation)

This morning, sightseeing with a Local Guide includes NOTRE DAME BASILICA, the Old Seminary of St. Sulpice, and a drive to the top of Mount Royal to enjoy a panorama of the city. This afternoon, transfer to Montréal’s port to embark on your ship for a 7-night CRUISE. (B, L, D)

Day 6: Quebec City

Visit Canada’s only walled city, which, until the British victory of 1759, was the center of New France and today is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Stroll within the walls and see the Place d’Armes, Laval Seminary, and ancient Place Royale. Also see Old World houses crowding the narrow streets in Lower Town by the St. Lawrence River and the historic Plains of Abraham. (B, L, D)

Day 7: Scenic Cruising: Gulf of St. Lawrence

Québec City marks the start of Saguenay Fjord. This 200-mile-long natural canal brings saltwater from the Atlantic Ocean inland and creates a beautiful environment for waterfront living for the communities of the St. Lawrence River. Spend the day at leisure aboard the ship, taking advantage of the numerous amenities. (B, L, D)

Day 8: Charlottetown

Spend the day in Charlottetown on Prince Edward Island, the provincial capital named after Queen Charlotte, consort of King George III. The city is famous for hosting the 1864 conference that three years later led to the creation of the independent Dominion of Canada. Perhaps take a trip to Cavendish and visit the famous Anne of Green Gables homestead.  (B, L, D)

Day 9: Sydney

So green and Gaelic is Cape Breton Island that Scotsman Alexander Graham Bell called it home for the last 37 years of his life. In fact, Cape Breton was principally settled by Highland Scots whose families had come out on the wrong side of rebellions against the Crown. You can still see this heritage in the accents in some remote villages—and in the great popularity of Scottish-style folk music. Today, you may choose to travel along the scenic Cabot Trail or visit historic Louisbourg Fortress, which recreates life in New French. (B, L, D)

Day 10: Halifax

Arrive in Halifax, where lighthouses stand sentinel on cliff side ledges and tiny villages huddle in rocky inlets. Take time to explore Citadel Hill with its early 19th-century star-shaped fort, the tree-shaded walks of the public gardens, and Fairview Cemetery, the final resting place for more than 100 people who perished on the Titanic. (B, L, D)

Day 11: Bar Harbor

Arrive in Bar Harbor on Mount Desert Island, Maine’s oldest summer resort, and stroll around the charming waterfront with its many shops, galleries, and boutiques. Alternatively, take an optional excursion to picturesque Acadia National Park, one of America’s most visited parks. (B, L, D)

Day 12: Boston (Disembarkation)

The tour ends this morning. Guests depart on individual schedules; airport transfers are provided. Please schedule your flights after noon. (B)
