Ontario & French Canada with Ocean Train to Halifax
About Ontario, Canada
Welcome to Ontario, Québec, and Nova Scotia! This Canadian vacation begins in cosmopolitan Toronto, Canada’s largest city and Ontario’s capital. See major landmarks such as the CN Tower and SkyDome Stadium on a city tour. But first, travel to Niagara Falls and board the Niagara Falls sightseeing cruise for up-close views of thundering Niagara Falls. After Toronto, visit historic Kingston and cruise the St. Lawrence River in Thousand Islands National Park before arriving in Canada’s capital, Ottawa. Enjoy a sightseeing tour of this lovely city and visit the Royal Canadian Mounted Police stables. Next, travel to the French-Canadian province of Québec and to Québec City, the heart of French Canada and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Tour this historic walled city—one of the best-preserved cities in North America. Perhaps dine at one of Québec City’s French restaurants. Then head south to sophisticated Montréal, one of the world’s largest French-speaking cities. Your sightseeing tour of Montréal shows you the city’s famous sites. From Montréal, board the overnight Ocean train bound for Nova Scotia for a 2-night stay in Halifax. Tour Halifax, the largest city east of Montréal and the capital of Nova Scotia, and take an excursion to postcard-pretty Peggy’s Cove. Exploring this quaint fishing village is a wonderful way to end your vacation to Ontario, Québec, and Nova Scotia!
