Not your average summit.
The "Mountainous View" Near Montreal You Need To See This Summer

It's always fun to see beautiful mountainous views after a long hike, however it's even better to experience spectacular views without doing ANY work. No, this isn't a ski lift nor is it a helicopter tour. It's actually called a mountain aerial tram and it offers the most superb views of several mountains.

It's a slow 8 minute ride that allows each visitor to see mountainous views like never before especially during the summer! Once reaching the top, you can walk around the summit point or enjoy a beer at the bar/cafe located a short distance from the ending point of the tram. 


Tickets are $18 for adults, $16 for children 6-12, and free for children under 5. The Cannon Mountain Aerial Tramway will open for the season on June 2. Operating hours are 8:30 am to 5:00 pm daily.
