2023 Montreal > New York City

A capital idea

This sojourn through eastern Canada and the USA not only takes you through some of the most iconic locations in North America, you’ll also get the rare opportunity to visit both national capitals.
Ottawa and Washington D.C. have much in common. Both began as small frontier towns and were quickly upgraded to capital cities. Both are elegant examples that reflect their colonial influences as much as their distinctive national cultures. And these are hardly the only high points in an itinerary that will also take you to cultivated centres like Montréal and Québec City.
