7 Giant Corn Mazes Near Montreal ​Where You Can Lose Yourself In The Magic Of Fall
True

Sure, there are pumpkin spice lattes and multicoloured leaves, but nothing says fall fun in Quebec like navigating your way through a giant corn maze.

There are plenty of places to wander amongst the corn stalks near Montreal — both during the day and after dark. Whether you're looking for a wholesome family activity or a Halloween-inspired fright night that'll make you scream in terror, there's something for everyone.

Many farms have online reservation systems while others don't require reservations, so check the websites thoroughly before heading out!

La Ferme Forget

Distance From Montreal: 40 minutes by car

Price: $8 per adult during regular hours or $15 per adult on Friday nights

When: The farm's opening hours are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekdays or 7 p.m. on weekends. For Friday nights at the farm, doors open at 6 p.m. and the last departure is at 9 p.m. with the site closing at 11 p.m.

Address: 7901, ave. Marcel-Villeneuve, Laval, QC

Why You Need To Go: This cornfield is 3.5 hectares – the equivalent of five football fields — and the maze brings you into the heart of it. You could check it out during the day, but adrenaline junkies looking for a fear factor will want to go Friday night when the labyrinth stays open after dark.

The price of your ticket also gets you access to bonus activities like tractor rides, u-pick sunflowers and zinnias fields, campfires with marshmallows, and a mini animal farm, depending on when you go.
