Canada comes to life in the fall, so join Black Watch to immerse yourself in astonishing autumnal beauty and get under the skin of Lonely Planet’s ‘top country to visit in 2017’, with chances to explore colourful landscapes and discover photo opportunities galore.
After whetting your appetite for what’s to come on your Canadian exploration in rugged Killybegs – situated on Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way – you’ll cross the Atlantic to St John’s. The countryside views on offer from Signal Hill in St John's are not to be missed, especially at this time of the year; and from Newfoundland’s capital it’s also possible to journey to Canada’s easternmost point, Cape Spear. A call into Halifax, capital of Nova Scotia, is followed by a stop in historic Charlottetown. You'll be perfectly placed to explore the rich forests of Prince Edward Island’s Confederation Trail, bursting with autumn splendour. You will then have the chance to bask in the small-town charm and ambience of Baie-Comeau, before Port Saguenay serves as your gateway to the beautiful Saguenay Fjord National Park. Sailing of the Saguenay River comes next as Black Watch heads for classical Quebec City, where the icons of the UNESCO-listed Old City, such as the grand Château Frontenac and Cathedral-Basilica of Notre-Dame de Québec await. For another display of spectacular fall foliage, take a tour to the Laurentian Mountains – one of the best places to observe Canada’s natural beauty.
Be sure to have your camera to hand as you call into Trois-Rivières, starting point for taking in the pristine lakes and vibrantly coloured woodlands of La Mauricie National Park – popular with hikers and explorers from around the world. A day in stylish Montreal follows, affording time to marvel at the city’s mix of traditional and contemporary architectural highlights, including the Olympic Tower and Basilique Notre-Dame. The oasis-like Botanical Garden is well worth seeking out too. A stop at Havre St Pierre to experience the rural lifestyle and immerse yourself in the natural beauty of the Mingan Archipelago is followed by a day in Corner Brook – your final Canadian call. Here you could follow in Captain Cook’s footsteps and explore the stunning coastline; or opt to tour to the UNESCO-listed Gros Morne National Park for your last chance to ‘leaf peep’ Canada’s vibrant autumn colours. En route back to Liverpool you’ll enjoy one last highlight, calling into Northern Ireland’s attraction-packed capital, Belfast.
