This BRAND-NEW tour has all the makings of a mystery tour, as sooo many components are new to us. But I just couldn’t keep a lid on it, so ‘hold on to your hat’ and come along on this FFFing Fun Fields Trip. 

Day 1  Trois Rivieres has been chosen for our first 2 nights, as it is located on the St Lawrence where logging and pulp & paper play an integral role. Jump right in with dinner at a sugar shack. Hotel Delta by Marriott Downtown Trois Rivières, PQ (D)

Be sure to take the elevator to the top of the Observation Tower for a breathtaking view. In the afternoon we’ll tour Hydro-Quebec oldest operating power station, as well as Northern Aluminum Company. Return to the hotel to freshen up before heading out to a HIGH-ENERGY performance from Quebec’s very own Cirque du Soleil in their permanent stage in Trois Rivieres.
