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

Cultural Journeys

Cultural Journeys allow travelers to gain insights into the heritage, history and modern realities of their destination by offering a broad diversity of experience. We rely on the expertise of our local staff to plan itineraries which not only explore the prominent sites but also make time for the lesser-known local gems and are intentional about regular interaction with local people.

The Itinerary

We do everything possible to run safe, engaging, and immersive programs for our travelers, but given the unpredictable nature of international travel we must remain flexible in our planning. Changes to a schedule are uncommon but if inclement weather pushes us off course or an unexpected opportunity arises which travelers are excited about, we reserve the right to adjust programming in the best interest of the group.

This was a great opportunity for [my daughter]. Thank you for being so professional and for teaching her things we never could. It was awesome to work beside Smithsonian scientists and learn. Travel is such an education that cannot be taught in a classroom.
