A Canadian city with a very French feel, Montreal is the ultimate fusion of the best of Europe and North America. With its great taste and charming sensibilities going back to its French settlers, soak up all the culture this incredible city has to offer.

Begin your adventure by learning more about Montreal’s history. Discover the people and stories that make Montreal so unique, before checking out its incredible art scene at the Montreal Museum of Fine Art and the Musée d'art contemporain. Dig further back into history to discover the history and culture of the region’s indigenous cultures at the Pointe-à-Callière archaeology museum.

If you’re more into natural history, you can’t miss the Montreal Biodome. This breathtaking museum will immerse you in the different ecosystems of the Americas, giving you an experiential understanding of the natural world. When it comes to natural landscapes, Montreal is blessed with the best. Get up early to see the sun rise over the city from the peak of Mont-Royal, before walking around its beautiful lake. Stroll through the magnificent Botanic Gardens, or through one of the city’s many farmers’ markets. If you’re keen to kick things up a gear, go on a tour of Plateau Mont-Royal’s many pubs, before calling it a night with a plate of poutine.

During the summer months, the good times keep rolling as music festivals breathe new life into the city. Get over-stimulated at MUTEK, Montreal’s unique electronic music and arts festival, which has a focus on multimedia experiences.
