Shared Montreal Sightseeing Cruise Along St. Lawrence River
Enjoy a meandering cruise along the beautiful St. Lawrence River!

Montreal Poutine Experience On Your Own
Get a taste of Montreal’s vibrant culinary culture with a classic poutine experience. A poutine is essentially a plate of French fries served with Quebec cheese curds and brown gravy, topped with meat, poultry, seafood or even vegetables. From its humble origins as a hearty staple, poutine has evolved to become Montreal’s iconic dish, with avant garde interpretations and newer renditions – the dish even has its own week-long festival in the city. If you are looking for the traditional barebones poutine, head to Paul Patates that serves it with a bottle of their famous spruce beer. The Montreal Pool Room is practically an institution for its ‘greasy-spoon’ fare. The city’s fine dining destinations like Le Garde-Manger in Old Montreal are likely to treat you to gourmet versions such as lobster poutine, while Au Pied de Cochon has long been famed for its extravagant duck liver or foie gras poutine. Open 24 hours a day, La Banquise is a favorite destination as much for after-hours celebrity spotting as for its ‘La Reggae,’ a poutine featuring ground beef, guacamole, diced tomatoes and hot peppers. If you are especially particular about your toppings, drop in at any of the Poutineville outlets of this homegrown chain, where you can choose from different kinds of fries, meats, veggies, cheese and gravy to create your very own version of this signature Canadian dish! (Duration: Half Day; No guide; No transfers; Entrance fees and meals are not included)

Hike Mont Royal on your own
Mont Royal is one of the most popular hiking destinations near Montreal. The city is believed to have been named after this small extinct volcano, which was originally written as Monte Real. Arrive at the historic Mont Royal Park that opened way back in 1876 and is the first officially protected space in Quebec. Sprawling across 470 acres, Mont Royal is crowned with three peaks, the highest of which rises to 764 feet above sea level. Choose your trail with options ranging from paved road and stairs to dirt foot paths that weave through lush forests, high escarpments and quiet hidden corners. Your Trip Coordinator will help you choose the best trail for your personal fitness level. Three quarters of the way up, the Mount Royal Chalet offers breathtaking views of the city from the Kondiaronk Belvedere, while the Camillien-Houde belvedere looks out on the east of Montreal. The picturesque Beaver Lake is as popular in summer for swimming and boating as for skating in winters. (Duration: 3 hrs; No guide; No transfers; Entrance fees and meals are not included)
