New Fly & Cruise Options for Antarctica

We have two new exciting Fly & Cruise Expeditions to Antarctica. You reach Antarctica on a quick two-hour flight from Punta Arenas, Chile and get going right away on your wilderness adventure. The 73-passenger ship means you get on and off faster, so your time ashore is focussed where it should be: savouring every moment of a travel experience unlike any other.

Have you been waiting for a more comfortable way to reach Antarctica and maximize your time exploring? View our new expeditions here or contact our Polar Specialist Martine to learn more.

WEBINAR: Literature in Québec with Melanie Blake

WEBINAR: Literature in Québec with Melanie Blake

Join Classical Pursuits director Melanie Blake for a virtual trip to beautiful Quebec City and discover underappreciated literary works, many of which have been translated into English. This first part in a series of two gives an overview of Quebecois literary history from the 16th century to the Montreal School and the first decades of the 20th century.

Believe it or not, "not a page of French was printed in New France" from the time of Jacques Cartier's explorations in the 1530s until the establishment of the Quebec Gazette in 1764. Colonial literature came from and looked to Europe. But from the start, stories, travelogues, songs and plays written in and about Quebec also reflected a complex cultural and linguistic milieu and an ever-changing relationship to France and Canada.

Melanie is the director of Classical Pursuits and has led trips in France, Belgium, Colombia, Mexico and Italy. She has been a student of francophone culture since her first day of French class in 1991 and looks forward to sharing the richness of Quebecois literature with you.

Thursday, December 3 2020 2:00pm - 3:00pm

Free to attend!
