Enjoy the dramatic, vibrant colours of autumn in Québec as you watch vast landscapes turn bright red, orange and gold at the onset of the ever-spectacular Fall season. For an unmatched view of this stunning natural spectacle, this curated route sees you from the big-city sights of Montréal to the heart of the Laurentian Mountains. With its endless sweep of maple, birch and mountain ash forest, the beauty of the trees' colours at the peak of their metamorphosis – at the end of September to mid-October – is unrivalled. You'll then wrap things up with a stay in Québec City, its UNESCO-listed old town a joy to explore on the banks of the pretty St Lawrence River.
