What You Can Expect

Montreal in Winter: Ice Skating, Snowshoeing and Sledding on Mount Royal

Winter Tours on Mont-Royal

Start your day of family-friendly winter activities with a bus ride up to the top of Mount Royal. Home to the highest point in the city, the 494-acre (200-hectare) park transforms into a winter wonderland when temperatures dip, welcoming tobogganing, snowman-building competitions and cross-country skiing to its slopes. Lace up a pair of skates and skim the surface of Beaver Lake, a lake built in 1958 that's perfect for a family outing.

After skating across Beaver Lake, traverse the snowy wilderness in a pair of snowshoes, which even adolescents can master. Your guide will lead you through Mount Royal’s wooded pathways, where you’ll be afforded awe-inspiring views of the mountainside and Montreal down below.

Take a break from the brisk air during a filling lunch inside the warmth of the Smith House & Museum (please see below for a sample menu). Don’t miss the permanent exhibit Monte Real, Monreale, Mont Royal, which provides an overview of the history, natural environment and conservation issues surrounding the mountain.

Before wrapping up your 4-hour tour, enjoy one last adventure whooshing down Mount Royal in an old-fashioned wooden sled. All activities, food and entrance fees are included, so all you have to worry about is savoring your carefree day on the mountain.
