Experience contemporary tradition and sheer joie de vivre!

About the Destination

Step onto the streets of the second largest French-speaking city in the world and it won’t take you long to realize that Montreal is a place where tradition and modernity co-exist.

Explore the winding cobblestone streets of Old Montreal, or dust off your French language skills and order a Montreal Smoked Meat sandwich from the legendary Schwart’s en français. Explore a tropical rainforest and a polar ice cap in the same day at the Biodome. Ride the world’s tallest wooden rollercoaster at La Ronde. Train like an Astronaut at the Cosmodome, or like a Cirque du Soleil performer in Circus School. Take an elevator ride up the Olympic Tower – the highest incline tower in the world.

Dig beneath the layer of French-English identity and you will see the multicultural complexity of the city flourish. Come experience Montreal’s seamless combination of contemporary tradition and sheer joie de vivre.
