10 Activities to do this summer in Montreal
Go to “La Ronde”
“La Ronde” is a wonderful amusement park located on Sainte-Hélène Island in Montreal. The park is open from mid-May to the end of October. The park, which has exactly 42 merry-go-round and attractions, attracts approximately 1.2 million visitors each year. Several events have been held in the park each year, including the Loto-Québec International Fireworks Competition, since 1985. This world-renowned fireworks competition is held each year there from June to August.
Make the leapfrog
This jet-boat trip allows you to tame the rapids of the St. Lawrence River Before taking a seat aboard the boat, some specific instructions are given, then you put on a raincoat and that’s the start. The boat goes to the rapids of Lachine, which produces swirls, then drives into the broths, turns 360 degrees…the waves fall on the passengers … and the captain announces the next games, always crazier.
Rock Climbing at Horizon Roc
Anyone who wants to measure their skill in the sport of climbing will find here a good foot anchor in one of the two rooms of the centre. For beginners, test sessions and introductory courses are available. There is also a playground called Acro-Park, where you can experience strong emotions by traversing suspension bridges or being hooked to the 25-meter zip line, all in a covered site, open throughout the year.
Relax on the beach of the “Quai de l’horloge”
Fine sand, deck chairs, colourful parasols; the beach of “Quai de l’horloge” is a dream place for those who want to be transported in the tropics without leaving Montreal. Located at the foot of the Clock Tower, a mythical symbol of the Old Port, the beach is equipped with sprayers to refresh you at any time.
Venture to “Laser Quest”
Ready for adventure? Discover, a stone throw from the Bell Centre in Montreal, the most exciting laser adventure game in town. Venture yourself in the fog of a labyrinth of five levels with light effects, all wrapped up in a heady music. No matter the event, from age 5 to 85, Laser Quest is the place to be.
Go to the many festivals
From “Francofolies” in Pop Montreal through Oshawa and the Montreal Jazz Festival, festivals are popular in Montreal, just as the Quebec City Summer Festival and the Ottawa Bluesfest. Montreal is a hub of festivities.
The Loto-Québec 2018 International Fireworks
On the 34th edition of the Loto-Québec International Fireworks, world-renowned companies representing their respective countries are invited to participate in this fireworks competition, recognized as one of the most prestigious in the world. The best place to admire these beautiful fireworks is undoubtedly from La Ronde’s site, in the stands, where you will not miss the fires that unfold both on the surface of the Dolphin Lake and in Montreal’s sky.
