Montmorency FallsDay 5

The Cathedral of Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré and majestic Montmorency Falls sit along the St. Lawrence only a short distance from Québec. Visit the holy shrine, then travel to the top of the falls by cable car for breathtaking views. You’ll also visit the Copper Art Studio showcasing the work of artist Albert Gilles, whose masterpieces are the doors and altar ornaments you saw at Ste. Anne. At the Cidrerie Verger Bilodeau on Isle d’Orléans, you’ll sample the deliciously sweet apple ice wine. (FB,L)
