Dynamic and multicultural, Montréal is the perfect blend of old-world charm and cosmopolitan flair.

  • Old Montreal

    Discover the city's pride and joy and catch a glimpse into its incredible history along the side streets and back lanes of Old Montréal. Marvel at Notre-Dame Basilica’s glowing interiors, take in the historic architecture as you wander down to the Old Port and enjoy the quaint restaurants and boutiques along Saint-Paul Street - make sure you plan a whole day of exploring.

  • Parc Jean-Drapeau

    Spanning two islands located in the middle of the St. Lawrence River, Parc Jean-Drapeau is Montréal's indoor-outdoor playground. Those looking to be entertained can easily do so in the Montréal Casino or the La Ronde amusement park - where those looking for a slightly slower pace can take in the views on a riverside walk or view the amazing eco-exhibitions at iconic Biosphére Environment Museum in the famous geodesic dome, all within easy each of downtown Montréal.

  • Circuit Gilles Villeneuve

    Located on Île Notre Dame in the middle of the St Lawrence River this world-class F1™ street circuit has played host to the Canadian Grand Prix since 1978. Take a tour of the complex, enjoy the fantastic nearby restaurants, clubs and shops or visit in early June to soak up the incredible excitement of Formula 1™ race day - an experience not to be missed.

  • View from Mont Royal Park

    Parc Mont-Royal

    Montréal's backyard, Mount Royal park is an unique urban mountain and sprawling park that is the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle. Climb the 256-step staircase to the top for captivating views of the city and if visiting in summer, take a picnic and eat al fresco and watch the world go by. Undoubtedly, the best time to view the park is in the Fall between September and October where you can enjoy the breathtaking foliage of bright reds, yellows and oranges on a fall walk.

  • Winter Activities

    Embrace winter's cold weather in Montréal with unforgettable experiences and amazing things to do. Daredevils can zip-line through the snow at Fête des Neiges on or go sliding, skating, tubing, snowshoeing or even cross-country skiing on its Mount Royal park's snowy hills. For a more relaxed pace, we love getting cozy by the fire with a cocktail in the bars along Crescent Street, shopping for one-of-a-kind gifts in the festive Christmas Markets and ice skating by the St. Lawrence River with the city's stunning backdrop.
