Canadian East Extravaganza


Starting in the most exciting city in Canada, this itinerary loops you from dazzling Toronto to rich and vibrant Montreal and back through some of the natural scenic wonders of the country, giving you a diverse taste of Canada and its many treasures. City kids and country folks alike will find plenty to enjoy in this east coast extravaganza, from festivals in city streets to frogs on forest pathways.


Enjoy accessible Toronto and explore the city easily, from iconic CN Tower to the Eaton Centre, packed with over 250 cute shops and a huge flock of Canadian geese- in mobile form. Taste a bit of the Old World as you walk the cobblestone streets of Montreal, then hit the clubs for a peep at tomorrow’s music. Rip Mont-Tremblant in half with your snowboard, then indulge yourself with a room at the elegant Chateau Laurier in Ottawa. Walk across the second-longest covered bridge in Canada at Fort Coulonge, and explore the many rivers, forests, and lakes of Algonquin Park.

Suggested Route

Starting Point: Toronto
Ending Point: Toronto

Time Frame: 10-14 Days

From Toronto hop on Highway 401 to Kingston, continuing on to Montréal for a few days before heading north on Highway 15 to visit Mont-Tremblant. Loop around to Ottawa and head up through Fort-Coulonge and on to Algonquin Park, spending a few days before returning to Toronto. Allow extra time on small roads as travel can be slow and precarious, and try not to drive around dusk and dawn, the times of day that big animals (like moose) are more likely to be on the roadways.
