What You Can Expect

Round-Trip Gourmet Train Ride from Quebec: Baie-Saint-Paul and La Malbaie

Gourmet Food While Enjoying Spectacular Sights

Board Le Massif de Charlevoix train at Parc de la Chute-Montmorency Station in Quebec City and then travel northeast into the picture-perfect Charlevoix landscape. Following the shoreline of St Lawrence River, your route includes swathes of eastern Canada’s most stunning countryside, with craggy mountains to one side of you and tranquil riverside vistas on the other.

As you travel, your on-board host will serve a delicious breakfast featuring continental breads, cereal, a hot drink and fruit juice. Enjoy the feast and admire the views as you sit back and relax in your spacious railcar. After a journey of roughly two hours, arrive in the picturesque little town of Baie-Saint-Paul to enjoy three hours at leisure (or two hours if traveling between August 20 and October 14).

Baie-Saint-Paul station is a short walk from the town's top attractions and sites, so take a stroll into the center to discover its delights. Perhaps wander along its main street -- Rue-St-Jean-Baptiste -- and browse its quirky art galleries, boutique shops and candy stores, or visit a café for a snack. Be sure not to eat too much, as your 4-course dinner will be served back on your train! All entrance fees, activities and food in the town are at your own expense.

Make your way back to the station at the pre-arranged time, and then board your train, heading further north along the banks of St Lawrence River toward La Malbaie. Enjoy the first two courses of your 4-course meal on this leg of the journey, and then enjoy a short break in La Malbaie (roughly half an hour) before looping back around and returning to Baie-Saint-Paul. Stop for another half-hour break at the station and then travel further south to Quebec City. Your train tour ends at Parc de la Chute-Montmorency Station in the late evening.
