2021 Montreal > Montreal

Nature’s masterpiece

In the winter, North America is painted in subdued tones, as if dabbed in watercolours. In summer, it’s as bright and breezy as warm pastel pigments. However, it’s in the fall that you’ll see it at its most beautiful.
Autumn is painted in an entirely different palette. With its mauve browns and rusty reds, the fall has a more textured look, as if it has been created in oils, with the rough brushstrokes of an impressionistic masterpiece. At every point in this itinerary, starting in Montréal, progressing through Québec City and Ottawa, and on to Pennsylvania and New York, you’ll get to witness nature’s magic at work, painted on every tree, every street, every mountain, river and city.
