DAY 1:

Fly to Ottawa

Upon arrival, if you purchased Vantage air, you’ll be transferred to your centrally located hotel from the airport. After settling in, enjoy free time before a Welcome Dinner tonight.

Included meals:

Dinner

DAY 2:

Celebrate Canada’s beauty and history with a tour of Ottawa

Ottawa may well be one of the world’s most beautiful capitals, with its monumental Parliament Hill overlooking a mantle of gorgeous waterways, parks, and falls. You’ll discover its highlights on this morning’s city tour, beginning with the Canadian Museum of History.

Next, your city tour brings you past the War Memorial that stands on Confederation Square, one of Canada’s national historic sites. Then, at the ByWard Market, Ottawa’s oldest and largest open-air farmers’ market, you’ll be tempted by more than 260 stalls selling fresh local fare and gifts. Maybe you’ll sample a BeaverTails pastry, a scrumptious cinnamon and sugar-dusted fritter that got its start in Ottawa. Traveling along Sussex Drive, you’ll see the Prime Minister’s residence, then continue to stately Rockcliffe Park and the adjoining city of Gatineau, with its impressive Museum of Civilization. Heading back to town, you’ll cross the UNESCO-listed Rideau Canal, which slices through the heart of downtown and is a popular recreation area always filled with bikers or skaters. You’ll also see Major’s Hill Park, a peaceful green oasis in the heart of downtown Ottawa, and the city’s crowning glory, Parliament Hill, a collection of enormous sandstone, Gothic Revival buildings including the iconic, 302-foot-high Peace Tower.

The afternoon is at leisure and lunch and dinner are on your own. Perhaps you’ll return to the ByWard Market for some last-minute shopping, take a sightseeing cruise along the Ottawa River, or browse the National Gallery of Canada. 

Set out to uncover the delights of one of the world’s most surprising capitals. Laid-back and inviting, Ottawa exudes a sophistication and worldliness that make it irresistible for culture lovers. This former lumber town is today graced with stunning neo-Gothic buildings, lush gardens and green parks. Then, enjoy a panoramic tour of the downtown core, viewing the Prime Minister’s Offices, Parliament Hill, and the Supreme Court. See the ByWard Market, the main shopping street, and the Rideau Canal, which opened in 1832. You have the rest of the day free to explore on your own.

Included meals:

Breakfast

DAY 3:

Visit wildlife mecca Parc Omega, travel to Montréal, and join the base tour

Depart for Montréal and enjoy a unique experience in the heart of nature in Montebello. Visit Parc Omega and discover Canada’s wildlife such as moose, elk, bison, wolves, bears, and many more, all within their natural environment. Upon arrival at the park, you will board the Omega bus and drive around the 15-kilometer marked path with an animal guide, specifically trained for sharing their knowledges about the beautiful species and quickly spot the ones that are usually difficult to see. Some animals will greet you at the bus: You can open the windows and feed them with carrots if you’d like! Enjoy the ride and admire Canada’s wildlife… you will certainly come back with unperishable memories. After a delightful lunch, you will have some time to walk around the resort before traveling to Montréal to check in at your hotel and join Day 1 of the base tour.
