Quebec City, Canada
Quebec City is the capital of the Canadian province of Quebec and the second largest city in the province (behind Montreal). Old Town Quebec is the only fortified city in the U.S. or Canada whose walls still exist. The Historic District of Old Quebec was declared a World Heritage Site by the United Nations in 1985. It is one of the oldest cities in North America.

Quebec City is known for the Château Frontenac, a historic hotel which dominates the city skyline, standing high on a bluff overlooking the mighty St. Lawrence River. Beside the hotel is Dufferin Terrace, a walkway along the edge of the cliff, with beautiful views of the river. The area around Old Quebec, east of the fortification walls, has a distinctly European feel, with stone buildings and winding streets lined with shops and restaurants. Also near the hotel is Notre-Dame de Québec Cathedral, mother church of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Quebec, the first church in the New World to be raised to a basilica. The Dufferin Terrace leads toward the site of the battle in which the British took Quebec from France.

The Upper Town is linked by the "Escalier Casse-Cou" or "neck-breaker" steps,and also by the Funicular, to the Lower Town, where you will find the ancient Notre Dame des Victoires church, the historic Petit Champlain district, the port, and the Museum of Civilization. Tourist attractions located near Quebec City include Montmorency Falls and the Basilica of Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré.


Sailing the St. Lawrence River
The Saint Lawrence River originates near Kingston, Ontario, at the outflow of Lake Ontario. at Kingston, Ontario. From there, It passes Montreal and Quebec City before draining into the largest estuary in the world,the Gulf of Saint Lawrence. During its passage in the valley between the Laurentian Mountains on the northwest side of the river, and the Monts Notre-Dame on the southeast side, you will see some of the most beautiful scenery in North America. You'll pass the mouth of the Saguenay River, and the Gaspe Peninsula, before being released into the Gulf of Saint Lawrence, north of Prince Edward Island.

Sailing the Gulf of St. Lawrence
The Gulf of St. Lawrence is a special marine environment from an oceanographic perspective:
* It is isolated from the Atlantic Ocean
* It receives large amounts of freshwater drainage from the Great Lakes and the St. Lawrence River basin
,br>* It is usually ice covered in winter
* It has numerous shallow areas and also deep troughs.

The Gulf is a semi-enclosed sea, open to the Atlantic Ocean through the Cabot Strait and the narrower Strait of Belle Isle. The Laurentian Channel that runs though the gulf is a long, continuous trough over 900 feet deep that runs over 900 miles from the continental shelf in the Atlantic Ocean to the St. Lawrence Estuary at the mouth of the Saguenay River. This trough brings deep oceanic waters to the estuary.


Visit to Iceland


Prince Edward Island
It's warm, it's wildlife, it's Prince Edward Island (the natives say PEI), it's whale and porpoise feeding grounds and the jewel of the Strait. It's Oktoberfest, it's Native, it's European, it's historical towns and villages...it's championship golf, hiking, kayaking, cycling…most of all it’s charming.

Discover unique landscapes and history on your voyage, full of lingering walks along picture-perfect beaches, visits to intriguing coastal towns and sleepy little harbors, all combining for an unforgettable and relaxing vacation.

Recreational fishing on Prince Edward Island, both in freshwater and saltwater, is one of the best kept secrets in the angling world. Fact: Prince Edward Island is one of the few places in North America where the brook trout, also called speckled trout, is still king. The large input of mineral rich groundwater, combined with short streams and large estuaries, has created ideal conditions for brook trout.

When you're gently pedaling down a tranquil, historic road that was carved from the red clay and hardwoods well before the first bicycle was even invented, it's hard to imagine that over the next hill you could find a cross country trail that gives a whole new meaning to the word extreme. Prince Edward Island a place that sometimes seems to have been made just for cycling.


Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Canada
