Overview

Book online and enjoy exclusive savings on Globus 15 Day Quebec In Depth with The Gaspe Peninsula with Halifax. Follow your nose to the café-lined promenades of Québec City, your ears to the music-filled streets of Montréal, and your eyes to the sweeping views of the Gaspé Peninsula on this eleven-day tour of French Canada. Along the way, say bonjour to tiny fishing villages, giant beluga whales, and the grandest of views as you cruise around the imposing Percé Rock and the sensational Saguenay Fjord.

From the banks of the St. Lawrence River to the cliffs of the gulf, your taste of...read more the Old World awaits. Sip strawberry wine made from the fields by the sea, savour a “Taste the Gardens” lunch at the famous Les Jardins de Métis, and visit a family-owned fromagerie in the rolling-hill region of Charlevoix. On this flavourful holiday to French Canada, you’ll say “cheese” in more ways than one.

Wake up to the charming boats, buildings, and four-kilometre boardwalk in Novia Scotia’s capital after catching your Zzzs on the overnight Ocean Train from Montréal. A visit to Peggy’s Cove and its iconic lighthouse is another dream come true on this extension to your French Canadian holiday.
