You can learn more at the Champlain Trail Museum and Pioneer Village, which covers early settlers to the region. If the weather’s fine, don’t miss a trip to nearby Algonquin Provincial Park, where you can rent a canoe and search for moose, beavers, deer and various birds including the black and white loon.
1 night at the 2.5* Holiday Inn Express Pembroke

Days 6–7: Ottawa

The Capital of Canada is found at the confluence of the Ottawa, Rideau and Gatineau Rivers. It’s a bilingual city, with French and English spoken, with a good number of open spaces and parks breaking up the buildings.  There’s plenty to see and do, with Parliament Hill being a great place to start, and the changing of the guard daily occurring at 9am. Many museums chart Ottawa’s and indeed Canada’s history, from early human settlement to more recent wars and even future technologies. Discover the very best of Ottawa including the Canadian Royal Mint and the War Museum on a city tour.
2 nights at the 5* Fairmont Chateau Laurier

Days 8–9: Mont Tremblant

Head to the pretty peaks and dense forests of Mont Tremblant, where the stunning Parc National du Mont Tremblant is home to 206 bird species and offers stunning vistas of forests, lakes, waterfalls and rivers, criss-crossed with excellent mountain biking and canoe trails. Perhaps ride the gondola for sweeping panoramic views of the Laurentian Mountains, or follow the numerous hiking trails to the Rouge River and cool down with a spot of canoeing. There’s never a dull moment here, as a whole range of exhilarating outdoor activities will keep you entertained, from cycling, horse riding and mini golf, to alpine luging, rock climbing and river rafting.

Days 10–11: Quebec City

Tour vibrant Quebec City and stay at the fairy-tale Château Frontenac, the world’s most photographed hotel. The beautiful old city, a UNESCO World Heritage site, is also worth a look - don’t miss the imposing Citadelle and the impressive Hôtel du Parlement, the most important structure in the city. Quebec is the only walled city north of Mexico, so be sure to walk along the fortifications, which stretch for 4.6km around the town. While you’re in town, have a taste of Quebec’s warm and filling traditional food and locally made wines.
