  • Day 2


    From gleaming skyscrapers to the timeless charm of 17th-century cobblestone lanes, Montréal is a dynamic bilingual city with a medley of European and North American influences. From its ever-present festivals to its historic churches and bustling shops and restaurants, there's much to see and do. And you couldn't be better placed to explore Old Montréal, the historic centre of the city, set between the St Lawrence River and downtown skyscrapers.​​

  • Day 4

    Lake Placid

    Famous for hosting the Winter Olympic Games, not once but twice, but visit Lake Placid in the warmer months and there's you can still enjoy with more outdoor pursuits than you can imagine: explore the beauty and ruggedness of the Adriondack Park, Whiteface Mountain (New York's premier ski resort) and the Brewster Peninsula Nature Trails. It's also a real throwback town to the 70's: kitsch, funky and full of great places to eat, with lots of interesting historical sites including the not-to-be-missed Olympic Museum and John Brown Farm State Historic Site.​

  • Day 5

    Lake Placid to Bolton Landing, Lake George

    Drive Time: 1 hour, 25 minutes | Distance: 77 miles

    The first part of today’s journey is a beautiful drive along the Adirondack High Peaks Byway, then continues southbound on the Adirondack Northway to the small village of Bolton Landing – on the west side of the lake, with all the charm and views of Lake George but less of the crowds. Nicknamed Queen of the American Lakes, Lake George is just 10 minutes away with everything from winter skiing to boat cruises, shopping to spas, rock climbing to whitewater rafting and tubing, to fabulous galleries and museums). And for theme-park adventurers, Six Flags is just 25 minutes away too.
