Christmas in Quebec City December 23-27

Imagine snow falling on an old walled city. Perched on a cliff above the city and the St. Lawrence River is a magnificent old world hotel. Inside, you're seated in an easy chair near a cozy fire, the teeming throngs of last-minute shoppers back home in America a distant memory. Below the frosted windows of your room, narrow streets wind among quaint, warmly lit bistros, galleries, and shops topped by steep French roofs. Horse-drawn carriages jingle by. Your lodgings, decorated for Christmas, is the famous Château Frontenac, and the town is Quebec, the first city in North America to be placed on UNESCO's World Heritage list. At home in the Château, you have settled in for four fun-filled days and relaxing nights. The peace of the season settles upon you like a lap blanket.

A repeat of our popular holiday program in 2008, Christmas in Quebec is one of the most frequently requested tours among past editions of the W&L Traveller. Again we have chosen Quebec City for its charming combination of architecture and mood. Indeed, Quebec is a kaleidoscope of history. You'll savor the Dickensian atmosphere of a British colonial garrison town while enjoying earlier traditions reaching back to the original exploration and settlement of Canada by the French in the 17th century. Its two fine museums and our resident guide will deepen your sense of Quebec's distinct heritage. A traditional
Christmas Eve service at the beautiful Notre Dame Cathedral and our dinner and dance on Christmas Day at the Château will restore the fine old way of celebrating this special season, with its peace and good will.

With an attractive price and ample winter activities, as well as many comforts, this unusual travel experience offers a rare opportunity for family and friends to enjoy a memorable Christmas in Canada. The size of W&L's group will be limited, so early reservation is strongly advised.
