Setting sail from Montréal
Bilingual Montréal is Québec’s largest city, a vibrant island metropolis with a distinctive blend of old style European charm and thrusting modernity. Architectural highlights include the beautiful Basilique Notre-Dame-de-Montréal, and the city also boasts the world’s third largest botanical garden.
Canada: L'Anse aux Meadows
The archaeological site of L’Anse aux Meadows, on the northern tip of Newfoundland, is the only confirmed site of Norse settlement in North America. Vikings arrived from Iceland and Greenland some 500 years before Columbus, and you can visit the reconstructed timber and peat-turf homes that they built.
Canada: St John's (Newfoundland)
Newfoundland’s capital is a laid back city with an arty vibe, situated on a dramatic harbour. The hilly streets lined with colourful row houses make for a great photo opportunity, and the downtown area is full of history, as well as some excellent pubs and a thriving folk music scene.
Saint Pierre and Miquelon: Saint Pierre & Miquelon
The islands of Saint Pierre and Miquelon are a post-colonial oddity, a self-governing French overseas territory that sits just off the coast of Newfoundland. There is something more than a little surreal about the freshly baked baguettes, fine French wines and tricolore flags flapping in the breeze.
Canada: Magdalen Islands
The windswept Îles de la Madeleine, or Magdalen Islands, are strung across the Gulf of St Lawrence, to the north of Nova Scotia. The islands are known for their spectacular rust-red cliffs, deserted beaches and friendly inhabitants, and it’s also a popular spot for windsurfers and kitesurfers.
Canada: Québec City
Québec City, the capital of French-speaking Canada, is one of the North American continent’s most beguiling cities. The pretty old town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a joy to behold; the cobbled streets and church spires are enclosed within the old city walls, and many of the buildings date back to the 17th century
Arriving in Montréal
The onomatopoetic Tam Tam day if you’re around on a Sunday during the summer – go to Mont-Royal park to see, and hear, the drums.

Making the most of Montréal
You don’t need to take a private tour in Montréal, the city is completely manageable and although signs are in French, everyone speaks English.
