Quebec City, Quebec, Canada

Approximately 4 Hours
Experience the splendor of French Canada's countryside as you drive into the foothills of the Laurentian Mountains to the renowned Lac-Beauport area.
You'll stop en route at the spectacular Montmorency Falls. Enjoy a cable car ride and snap a few photos here. Cascading down a 272-foot cliff, Montmorency Falls is 1½ times as high as Niagara Falls. The powerful forces of natures are quite impressive, as the water of the Montmorency River roars down the cliff to eventually meet with the St Lawrence River.
You will enjoy morning or afternoon tea and pastries at the elegant Montmorency Manoir, perched at the top of the falls. Take a few moments to enjoy the breathtaking views of the falls from the panoramic terraces, step inside the Visitor Center, or shop in the gift boutiques.
Continue your journey to either Lac-Beauport -- a sparkling lake surrounded by emerald forests or take a step back in time as you cross the bridge to the Île d'Orléans (Island of Orléans) with its picturesque villages, and pastoral farmland. Passing the tip of the island, you will see the lovely 19th-century resort homes of Québec's rich merchant class, and spectacular views of the skyline of Québec City. At either area, you will visit an authentic sugar shack. Québec is well known for its production of maple syrup and there's no better place to learn about the production of maple products and sample the sweet maple taffy.
