Get that festive feeling as you head in to snowy Vermont and the ‘Ski Capital of the East’. Stowe puts on an incredible icy spread and blankets of snow can be seen for miles around, an idyllic spot to spend a traditional Christmas Day. Use this winter wonderland to your advantage and opt for some ice skating, snowshoeing or skiing action on Mount Mansfield, or you can even take a sleigh ride with one of Santa’s reindeers! Enjoy the old world charm of Stowe village and if 'Chunky Monkey' and 'Phish Food' mean something to you, then you're going to love an included visit to the one and only Ben & Jerry's ice-cream factory!

The excitement levels go up another notch as you roll into Montreal for Boxing Day! With more French speakers than any city outside of Paris, expect a little European flair. There might be a little chill in the air, but winter in Montreal is no time to hide indoors - it's time to wrap up warm and get out there to take advantage of all the seasonal fun on offer. Not forgetting the Montreal’s buzzing nightlife.

Day 8: Niagara Falls

Winter will never be the same again as you lay eyes on the spectacular natural wonder that is Niagara Falls, made up of three thunderous waterfalls, impressive at all times of year but you might be lucky enough to see the falls freeze during winter!
