Your Itinerary

Day 1 - Toronto to Kingston

Enjoy the facilities of the Business class lounge before boarding the train. Complimentary newspapers and non-alcoholic beverages are available in the lounge. Once on your way, the train follows the shores of Lake Ontario, one of the five Great Lakes of North America, to Trenton Junction, where the St. Lawrence River flows from the lake. Just past Napanee, look south as you cross the river to view a series of beautiful waterfalls, before arriving into Kingston, the early capital of the ‘Province of Canada’.

Hotel: Delta Kingston Waterfront

Day 2 - Kingston

Spend the morning visiting Fort Henry which still watches the approach from Lake Ontario and the UNESCO recognized Rideau Canal system, discover the many museums or simply explore the lakefront town where winding cobblestone paths give it a European feel.

Today’s lunch is taken in a beautiful setting. You go on a 1000 Islands cruise and enjoy a three course meal while gliding past small cottage islands and grand estates and listening to commentary about the history and folklore of the region.
