Bienvenue à Québec City! Meet your ACIS Tour Manager and begin exploring the city on a walking tour. You will see Place d’Youville, la Porte St-Jean, the Latin Quarter, le petit Séminaire de Québec and Notre Dame de Québec Cathedral. After dinner, continue your walking tour, ending on the Terrasse Dufferin outside the Château Frontenac, where you will pause for a group photograph before returning to the hotel.
Bundle up with warm layers and head to Parc de la Chutes Montmorency, where you will walk over a footbridge, weather permitting, that passes directly over the 275-foot-high falls –almost 100 feet taller than Niagara Falls! After lunch, visit Village Vacances and the incomparable Hôtel de Glace. You will enter the largest winter sports facility in North America, where you can try any of its 42 exciting inner-tube and crazy carpet slides. Tonight, enjoy an all-you-can-eat dinner at an authentic French-Canadian cabane à sucre, where you'll spend the evening learning traditional dances and folk songs. End on a sweet note with a taste of local made maple syrup rolled out on snow.
Arrive at the Martello Tower for an interactive lesson about military strategy of the era and discover some of the challenges of a soldier’s life stationed here at that time. After lunch you’ll be free for picture-taking or souvenir shopping along rue St-Jean, in the Latin Quarter’s many student-friendly shops and boutiques. This afternoon enjoy a dogsledding adventure you will never forget. Partner up for a lesson on how to communicate with the dogs and then off you all go! After dinner, your group can walk to Les Glissades de la Terrasse, where you'll spend the evening taking exhilarating, 300-metre rides on "la luge".
This morning, put on your caps, mittens and snowshoes for a snowshoeing adventure with a 20th century snowshoer in the park, along the course mapped out by the Plains of Abraham’s sports history. Next, take the funiculaire to an early lunch on your own in the Quartier Petit Champlain, the oldest part of Québec City, where the ancient greystone buildings and cobblestoned streets date to the early 1600s. End your Québec City visit with a ferry ride across the frozen, mile-wide St. Lawrence River to enjoy views of the stunning old city one last time before returning home.
