“The Chalet is actually not the main attraction, its the 180 degree view of the city. Take Serpentine path , or Camille Houde trail to access the Mont Royal Chalet , the paths along the way will also make you pass by Beaver lake ( how Canadian eh ! ). You can lounge / run / bike here during the summer or have some winter fun on the outdoor ice rink.”

Explore all of its venues from and ride the elevator 900 feet to the top of the world tallest inclined tower. At the top, the Observatory offer spectacular view of the beautiful city of Montreal and if you're luck enough to witness the sunset, do yourself a favor and make sure your phone has enough battery to capture this memorable moment!

“Located about 35km west of the city, Cap-St-Jacques is arguably the most diverse of Montréal’s nature parks, with a huge beach, more than 40km of trails for hiking and skiing, a farm and even a summer camp. The maple and mixed deciduous forest in the interior is a great patch for a ramble, and in spring a horse-drawn carriage brings visitors to a sugar shack to watch the maple sap boil.”
