Delve deep into the soul of North America and discover a constellation of starry cities, immense landscapes, fertile forests and noble history.

No city shines brighter than New York, the global capital of commerce and culture and home to the MoMa, Wall Street and Harlem. We feel the pulse of the historic heart of the United States in gilded and Boston. Then find the quaint charms and tidal wonder of the Bay of Fundy from St. John. We follow the wake of explorer Champlain into the Gulf of St. Lawrence to overnight in Quebec City, a bastion of France in the New World for more than 400 years.

The adventures of Jacques Cartier call us deep into the scenic Saguenay River. Wild, rugged and unfazed by time, we visit La Baie, celebrated as one of the “Most Beautiful Villages in Québec,” and charming Baie-Comeau, which is the heart of a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve. Breathtaking landscapes lead us to Prince Edward Island, famed for red-sand beaches and Anne of Green Gables. Then, with thunderous applause, we return to New York City to explore Broadway and Times Square.
