Following the St. Lawrence River, pass from city suburbs to the rural landscapes of forests and rich pastures, dotted with tiny villages that extend to Quebec City. For the first hour, you will note the rugged Monteregian Hills that seem to loom up from nowhere. These huge volcanic mounds were formed over 120 million years ago. There are seven of these hills in a row, including Mont Royal in Montreal, ending with Monte Rouge near the tiny village of Beloeil. Many of the trees you view are maple trees, producing the great Canadian staple, maple syrup. Your rail journey is just over two hours to Quebec, the oldest walled city in North America and heart of the French Canadian culture of Canada. In Quebec, arrive at Gare du Palais, located near the harbour in old town, Quebec.

Day 7: Quebec City > Toronto Enjoy the facilities of the Business Class Lounge while waiting for boarding instructions. Complimentary newspapers and non alcoholic beverages are available in the lounge.

Departing Quebec from Gare du Palais, cross the mighty St. Lawrence River to the south shore, which the rail line follows for almost the entire journey to Toronto. The landscape is dotted with tiny villages, all with church spires, maple forests and rich pasture land. This fertile land stretches most of the way to Montreal. After the small city of Saint-Hyacinthe, there is a dramatic change in the landscape, as the Monteregian Hills seem to appear out of nowhere. These huge volcanic mounds were formed over 120 million years ago and there are seven of these large hills in a row, including Mont Royal in Montreal. Arriving in Montreal at Central station, change trains and board VIA Rail's Toronto service. The change is seamless, in the same station, with a short connection wait. Departing Montreal, a brief stop is made at Dorval. From Dorval, the train route crosses the Ottawa River, a major tributary of the St. Lawrence River. In the distance of the north, you may view the Laurentian Highlands. Less than an hour out of Montreal, the train passes from the Province of Quebec into the Province of Ontario. Following the St. Lawrence, pass through the small cities and villages, including Kingston, the first capital of the "Province of Canada" from 1841 to 1867, when the capital was moved to Ottawa. Passing through Trenton Junction, the St. Lawrence widens into Lake Ontario. The rail line follows the shores of this "Great Lake" into Toronto, where you disembark at Union Station in downtown Toronto to end your rail journey.
