Your day-by-day itinerary

Arrival in Rockport

Today you’ll arrive in the Thousand Islands region, on the banks of Lake Ontario. Along the coast, you’ll pass several beautiful stops, one of them being Kingston. Kingston was Modern-day Canada’s first capital and has Canada’s oldest farmer markets. After your stop, you can then continue to Rockport, where you’ll be spending the next 2 nights in a 200-year-old country inn. Rockport is a very small town, but it has a lovely marina and plenty of choice of restaurants and a cosy pub.

Cruise the Thousand Islands

On your second day, you’ll take a cruise along the Thousand Islands. You’ll pass Boldt Castle and the lavish homes of the rich and famous. During the over 2-hour boat trip, you’ll learn the ins and outs of the region, including stories that introduce you to the history and treasures of the Lost Ships… all without needing a wetsuit! Before returning to port, you will also learn to make the world-renowned 1000 Islands salad dressing.

"Nothing beats the freedom of the open road, and Canada offers just that! My absolute highlights were spotting bears up close and opening my curtain to the most amazing views each morning. Those moments will stay with me forever!"
