And there's nothing more right in the wintertime than going for a skate, TBH. Montreal has tons of skating rinks to glide through; but honestly, none are more quintessentially Montreal than the one at Mount-Royal's Beaver Lake.
While it's easy for us all to just want to hibernate in our beds and binge-watch Netflix until winter is over, a little fresh air always does one a world of good. And this Quebec hike with a sublime landscape is an ideal spot to explore during the cold season.
Located in Saint-Fulgence in the Saguenay—Lac-Saint-Jean region, Parc national des Monts-Valin feels like you're inside a snow globe once it's filled up with fluffy white snowflakes everywhere.
The national park's winter schedule starts on December 10. Whenever you decide to venture there, you can make your way to the Discovery and Visitors Centre starting at 8 a.m. to decide which trails you want to embark on.
If you'd rather cross-country ski than hike, there are five trails you can try that have levels ranging from easy to difficult.
For those all about the views, there's a heated hut located on a hill 6 kilometres from the centre where you can rest and enjoy the fairytale-like panoramic view.
With 77 kilometres of marked trails available to anyone who wants to go on a snowshoeing adventure, this spot may just convince you to love wintertime. And here's a tip: The prettiest lookouts and viewpoints are found on Pic-de-la-Tête-de-Chien, Pic-de-la-Hutte and Mirador trails.
And for those who aren't too big on winter workouts, you'll want to check out the Fantôme Express, a caterpillar shuttle that will take you to the Vallée des Fantômes that looks straight out of a Christmas movie.
Anyone who makes it to the top of this 984-metre mountain will get to admire a magical snowy landscape with breathtaking views.
It may be a five-hour drive from Montreal, but it's certainly worth the road trip.
Expedia also shared data on Canadians' interest in visiting Quebec destinations. After Quebec City and Mont-Tremblant, Canadians seem to want to travel to La Malbaie, Tadoussac, Montreal and Gaspésie — in that order.
The results were based on searches for trips that would take place between July 7 and September 30.
At a press conference on Thursday, Premier François Legault, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and several other government representatives announced huge new investments into Canada's aerospace industry. These investments are set to create "more than 1,000" high-paying jobs in Quebec and the rest of Canada.
"The projects announced today are tangible platforms for creating exciting jobs," Aéro Montréal explained in a press release.
Ca Lem's owner, Stephanie Le, told MTL Blog that clients just need to download the TikTok app and show their account to the cashier in order to receive free pancake cereal sundaes — which are, of course, topped with maple syrup.
"We encourage users to take video and pictures of their visit to Ca Lem and post on Instagram, Facebook & TikTok platforms," she said.
There are limited quantities each day but the offer is valid at two of Ca Lem's locations — in NDG and the Plateau — so you can double your chances of getting a free sundae.
