Québec packages are created and sold by Québec travel
agencies. These destination experts give peace of mind to travellers
by providing advice and assistance, beneficial cancellation policies
and flexible financial protection. Travelling with them means
encouraging the local economy and making sure that you have a safe
and low-cost vacation.
Planning a vacation is an exciting part of
any trip. But it can also get complicated. One way to simplify the
whole process of planning and booking your next vacation is to purchase
a package that saves you time and money. Packages must be
demystified. They are not just for group travel or holidays in the
sun. And they can be tailor-made for you!
When you buy a plane ticket as part of a
package created by local agencies, a discount is offered right
away, thanks to the Explore
Québec Air program. Funded by the Ministry of Tourism, the
program aims to help you discover or rediscover eight remote
regions of Quebec: Gaspésie, Bas-Saint-Laurent,
Abitibi-Témiscamingue, Côte-Nord (Duplessis and Manicouagan),
Eeyou Istchee Baie-James and Nunavik.
From August 1 to 9, 2022 (9 days / 8
nights), embark on a meeting with the "Innu of the Sea”. Discover
the Côte-Nord region, where the St. Lawrence River turns into the
sea, and the landscapes grow in size and beauty. Did you know that
the Innu culture is practically intact in Unamen Shipu? Meeting
with them is a "global" immersion in another culture: the spoken
language, the ways of living and thinking, the rich handicrafts
and ways of doing things in everyday life… let yourself be lulled
by the tales and ancestral legends, charmed by the joy of living
and the art of the Innu.
You will live a two-part immersive
1) Truth and reconciliation - an
awareness of what the First Nations peoples have experienced, the
residential schools, the marginalization of the Indigenous culture
and the social impacts.
2) Cultural discovery component -
through workshops (traditional fishing, Indigenous spirituality
and traditional crafts...) and planned and unplanned encounters!
