Quebec City: Summer

Print
 
Old Quebec City is one of the few historical areas in North America to have fully preserved its Francophone culture. It's European feel, history, culture and warmth have made it a favorite destination for French students.
This program will give your students a taste of France, reinforce their knowledge of early North American history, provide them with opportunity to hone their French language skills, and take them home with memories of a lifetime.

Itinerary

This itinerary puts a summer spin on our classic Quebec City trip.
We'll explore Old Quebec - the historic district of the city - which feels like an old European city with its narrow cobbled streets, historical buildings, universities, convents and churches, plazas and parks, shops and restaurants. It's a pleasure to explore on foot.
We'll also bike out to Montmorency Falls where we'll zipline across the river, take a guided kayaking trip on the Saint Lawrence River along the shore of Île d'Orleans, and head inland to hike Jacques Cartier National Park with one of the park rangers.
