WinterWild | 11 Night Canadian Winter Road Trip Adventure

Wild winter adventure in Ontario & Quebec blanketed by snow. Explore Algonquin, Ottawa, Quebec, Montreal and Cote Nord. Activity from  Ski/Board, dogsledd, snowshoe, saunas, skate trails, hockey and a huge 7.4KM toboggan course - and get funky at the coldest music festival ...

Ontario and Quebec are a wonderland in winter. Join us to experience along with our many winter traditions!

It's more like a road-trip adventure with a local expert than a tour.

  • Experience our vibrant cities including Quebec, Montreal, Toronto along with some great outdoors in Algonquin and Charlevoix
  • Skate on the longest skating rink in the world AND through the forest on a multi kilomter skate trail
  • Enjoy a spa evening after a great day outside
  • Eat a generous helping of "real" poutine - with fresh curds - or have a lumberjack breakfast
  • Experience the magic of Quebec City in winter - covered in lights and wonders
  • Luge/Tabogon down a 7+ KM trail / mountain
  • Ski and snowboard on the highest vertical drop mountain east of the Rockies
  • Dogsled at reasonable rates in the great outdoors

Day 1 : North Ontario / Algonquin Park (2 nights)
We meet in Toronto and venture north to the scenic and rugged Algonquin Park and Arrowhead park. It’s filled with maple hills, rocky ridges, and thousands of lakes - that just might be blanketed in snow and frozen over. We will stop for lunch along the drive and a few nifty spots. There will be options to go skating at a skate trail, snowshoeing / hiking, tubing down a ski hill or x-country skiing.. Winter outdoor campfires are fantastic and your driver-guide will help set one up with you, perhaps with a taste of maple whiskey to keep you warm.
Meals :None

Day 2 : Ottawa, Ontario (2 nights)
We'll get the opportunity to explore Ottawa, the capital, where friendly Gatineau, Quebec, is just a short jaunt across the bridge. You'll have the opportunity to explore the city from parliament to some of Canada's best museums. And if the weather is right, ice skate along the largest outdoor rink, 7.8 KM long - the Rideau Canal.
Meals :None

Day 3 : Charlevoix and Le Massif, Quebec (3 nights)
Next up, a winter adventure wonderland along the mighty St Lawrence River (or "Fleuve" in french). With the highest vertical drop east of the rockies, reasonable lift pass fees, and the feeling that you will ski/board right into the massive river, Le Massif is one of our favourite spots. You can also get up to an epic 7.5KM sledding run down Mont Liguori with tight turns and epic views. Aren't into skiing, or just a beginner, don't worry you can go on easier trails, simply explore the winter wonderland by foot or hang out in quaint Baie-Saint-Paul. Zoom through a 7.5KM toboggan course down Mont Liguori with tight turns and epic views. Ski or snowboard Le Massif Dogsledding Snowmobiling Enjoy a sauna and hot tub at a local inexpensive spa.
Meals :None

Day 4 : Quebec City, Quebec (2 nights)
Next stop Quebec City, where you can explore the narrow, cobbled streets of the old fortified city. Check out the Citadel, the Plains of Abraham and many more historical sites, or enjoy our stops to the majestic Montmorency Falls. For eats, you'll discover amazing poutine alongside other Quebec specialities (lumberjack brunch anyone!), The evening boîte de chansons for some local live music are a must do.

Day 5 : Montreal, Quebec (2 nights)
Festivals, nightlife, karaoke Bars, Montreal smoked meat & bagels and lots more. This place is just awesome. Check out Rue St Denis (The Latin Quarter and Village), Basque in Old Montreal, visit the Basilique Notre Dame. Enjoy all that the city has to offer, but in its own distinct Quebecois way. You’ll get by with English in most spots, but trying knowing a few french phrases is appreciated. Go to Igloofest the coldest winter music festival in the world (dress in funky winter clothes - optional).
