Canada Cultural Journey
Don’t want to fly cross the ocean to experience Europe? Quebec is the answer! Canada’s largest province is also the most multicultural. It has the most unique mixes of old-world meets new-world, English meets French, and history meets today in all of North America. People from just about every walk of life can be found in Quebec, and the province boasts a multi-faceted geography, gorgeous landscapes and diverse climate. Four very distinct seasons put their stamp on this vast territory, and no matter what time of year you come, this friendly, romantic province is full of festivals and appeal.
Cultural Journeys provide deep insight into the history, culture, and natural heritage of our host countries through authentic immersive experiences. Students will explore ancient ruins, sample new foods, and develop valuable leadership skills.
Check out some of the possible featured experiences of your coming adventure! Each customized itinerary is unique, but these are just a few of the activities which may be available during your program.
Visit the Chutes Montmorency, a spectacular waterfall in Quebec
Take a ghost tour as costumed guides wander with lanterns through the streets of Old Quebec
Practice French with language classes and local interactions
Explore the oldest military building in Canada and other architectural wonders
We work hard to create engaging, educational, and truly immersive itineraries for our travelers. However, we also know that travel can be unpredictable, so we always design our experiences to be flexible enough to allow for adjustments based on group interests, unexpected opportunities, and any weather or safety concerns that may arise during your program. Should changes to the itinerary occur, we will notify travelers and families as quickly as possible.
|March 23||Québec||The group will arrive from the USA to Québec City. After arrival, the group will settle into their hotel and have an orientation meeting. We'll take a tour of Old Québec, a UNESCO world Heritage site and the only fortified city in North America.||Québec Hotel|
|March 24||Québec||We'll start the day with a photographic scavenger hunt (upper and lower town), then have lunch at Paillard. We will visit the Citadel, the oldest military building in Canada which is part of the fortifications of Québec City. Depending on the time of the visit, we may be able to see the changing of the guard, a ceremony in which sentries that are performing ceremonial guard duties at important institutions are relieved by a new batch of sentries. We'll take a ghost tour where costumed guides will light their lanterns and take us on a 90 minute walking tour through the streets of Old Quebec, to hear 400 years of haunting stories! The cobblestone streets and ancient buildings set the stage for a truly unique experience.||Québec Hotel|

Hotel Universel Quebec
Conveniently located, the hotel is close to Laval University and is minutes away from the business district of Sainte-Foy, downtown, and Old Quebec. What distinguishes the Hotel Universel from other hotels is undoubtedly its exotic indoor garden with heated pool and Nordic spa, not to mention the proximity of Laval University and PEPS.

With a previous outfitter [I worked with], the experience was more “touring” and no hands-on contributions and work. Walking Tree surrounds the travelers with amazing professionals who are dedicated to their sciences, travels, and countries. Travelers’ experiences are first-hand, authentic and memorable!
