Day 1 London / Toronto
Lakefront, cosmopolitan, culture-rich Toronto is one of the world’s most liveable cities. It’s also the ideal start-point for a road-trip around eastern Canada. Begin by driving to the luxurious Ritz-Carlton Toronto, centrally located so you can head straight out into the city.
Ritz Carlton | Meals: Room Only

Day 2 Toronto
Take in Toronto. Promenade the large, lively waterfront, home to art spaces, cool bars and ferries that shuttle to the tranquil Toronto Islands. Visit the Royal Ontario Museum, one of the top ten museums in the world, and head up the dizzying CN Tower, the world’s tallest free-standing structure. Also, eat like a king: the city is one of the world’s most ethnically diverse and there are few cuisines you can’t sample here.

Day 3 Toronto / Niagara Falls
Strike out along the shores of Lake Ontario, passing the orchards and vineyards of the Niagara Peninsula to reach Niagara-on-the-Lake – one of the best-preserved 19th-century towns in North America. Armed with an Adventure Pass, see the famous falls from multiple angles: for instance, follow the White Water Walk along the Niagara Gorge and take an up-close cruise to get soaked by the cascade’s spray.

Day 4 Niagara Falls / Algonquin Park
Head north into Ontario’s ‘cottage country’, bound for Algonquin Park. It’s a scenic drive, with many tempting stop-offs – don’t miss the detour into the Muskoka Lakes, where 900 silky-smooth lakes dapple the forests.
Deerhurst Resort | Meals: Room Only

Day 5 Algonquin Park
Algonquin Park is a distillation of Canadian wilderness. This is a land of maple hills, rocky ridges, innumerable lakes, moose, wolves and black bears. Hiking and canoeing options abound, and the Algonquin Logging Museum provides fascinating historical insight.

Day 6 Algonquin Park / Ottawa
Get under the skin of the country by visiting its capital. With its bilingual population, graceful buildings and close proximity to the rolling Gatineau hills, Ottawa is the sort of city you fall instantly in love with. Especially when you’re staying at the castle-like Fairmont Chateau Laurier.

Day 7 Ottawa
Ottawa has become a fascinating blend of English and French, historic and modern, ceremonial and casual. Explore its many facets on a city stroll, from the bluff-top Parliament Buildings (the symbol of the capital) to the banks of the Ottawa River, the National Arts Centre, the Sparks Street Mall, and the many cafés, craft shops and market stalls.

Day 8 Ottawa / Mont Tremblant
Hop over the border into Quebec, plunging northeast into the mighty Laurentians. The lively alpine hub of Mont Tremblant is the place to plan a range of activities, from hiking and biking to kayaking, horse riding and whitewater rafting. You can even soar above the resplendent range by helicopter.
Fairmont Tremblant | Meals: Room Only

Day 9 Mont Tremblant / Quebec City
Hit the road, driving via historic Trois Rivieres (founded in 1634) and along the banks of the St Lawrence River to reach Quebec City. This walled wonder is one of North America's oldest cities, and blends Canadian flair with a European vibe. The most striking feature of the skyline is the Fairmont Chateau Frontenac –your home for the night.

Day 10 Quebec City
The best way to soak up the old world charm of Vieux Quebec is to take a guided walk along its cobblestone streets and formidable city walls (one of a kind in North America). This UNESCO World Heritage site is complimented by a wealth of artisan shops, cafes, landscaped parks, monuments and great local museums. Ideal for idle strolling.

Day 11 Quebec City / Montreal
Trace the wide St Lawrence River out of the city and into village-dotted forests and rich pastures that extend all the way to Montreal. There's a real buzz to this culture-rich city, not to mention a mouthwatering food scene. Le Saint Sulpice, a boutique gem in the heart of the old town, is a perfect base.
Le Saint Sulpice | Meals: Room Only

Day 12 Montreal
Right from your door, step out into the most historic district of Montreal;don't miss the Notre Dame Basilica, one of the masterpieces of religious architecture in North America. Also, dip into the cafes of the French Quarter, visit the Olympic Site and take a panoramic overview from the top of leafy Mont Royal.
Le Saint Sulpice | Meals: Room Only

Day 13 Montreal / Kingston
Head south to discover a blast from the past. Upper Canada Village is a fascinating 1860s reconstructed village full of friendly fancy-dressed folks plus over 40 heritage buildings, from mills and shops to churches and a one-room school-house. Then stop off at Gananoque to cruise the myriad for-ested outcrops of the 1,000 Islands. Finish in Kingston, once capital of Canada (1841-1843) and rich in handsome 19th-century limestone architecture. Kingston sits where Lake On-tario flows into the St Lawrence River, and at the southern end of the Rideau Canal –visit the Kingston Mills Lock to see boats being raised by a staggering 14m.
Residence Inn By Marriott | Meals: Breakfast

Day 14 Kingston / Toronto
The city of Peterborough goes one better: this is home to the world's highest lift locks, which haul pleasure craft, and the water they float in, 20m straight up. Drop in at the Peter-borough Lift Lock Visitor Centre, then hit the road for the final drive back to Toronto.
Ritz Carlton | Meals: Room Only

Day 15: Toronto / UK
Head to the airport for your return flight home.
