Everyone knows a four-season city should be temperate in the spring and warm in the summer, with bright leaves in the fall and fluffy snowflakes in the winter. Montréal is one North American city that can truly deliver on all counts.
Montréal in the summer is one of the continent’s top destinations. Back-to-back festivals, outgoing and friendly citizens who love to share their fun with visitors, and architectural and natural beauty make Montréal an easy city to plan for. It’s your walkers’ delight, your cyclists’ dream, your gourmets’ heaven and your music lovers’ haven. It pops and fizzes with fireworks and gay (and lesbian!) festivities.
A Montréal winter always lives up to the expectations of the season. Outdoor ice skating is guaranteed in the Old Port and atop Mount Royal. So is snow, the main component of sledding, horse-drawn sleighing, cross-country skiing and more. We even provide coat-free shopping in our 33 km of underground shopping, which also connect our main cultural venues. Book your gourmets for the Montréal en lumière festival, a mid-winter break for food, music and exhibits in and under the city.
A Montréal spring bursts into bloom with the Festival Mode & Design Montréal for your fashionistas, and the Montréal Bike Fest for your cyclists. Our fall is ablaze with colour for your leaf connoisseurs and Halloween events such as the Great Pumpkin Ball for kids.
Hot or cold, warm or cool, Montréal delivers all four seasons in style.
