You Can Spend the Night Stargazing Inside These Bubble Tents Outside Montreal

Pop-up domes are turning out to be quite a phenomenon. One company, for example, specialises in creating "Dinner With A View" in downtown Montreal, where people can eat a gourmet, 3-course dinner in the city.

Others have a different idea of what a "view" entails. Cavaland Park, an equestrian park in the Laurentians has set up pop-up domes for guests, so that they can enjoy "an authentic night under the stars." The best part? There's a Groupon out there that gives customers $100 off the original value.

TL;DR For $199 you can enjoy a night in a heated pop-up dome in a park outside of Montreal. Talk about spending the night under the stars!

For $199 you can spend the night stargazing in a cozy duvet in a heated, ventilated dome. The dome is completely see-through, which means that you'll have a 360 degree view of the sky, without having to be outside in the cold!

In the words of the park, visitors "can observe horses, nature, the sky, and winter and summer beauty under a transparent dome in the heart of the trails"

If you go during the summer, you'll be able to use the pool and the heated spa, too.

Cavaland Park is an equestrian park, which means that you can learn to ride horses, or go horseback riding through their trails. In the winter, they offer what they call ski joering, which is essentially horse-drawn skiing.

The park is just about a two-hour drive north of Montreal.

Here's What's Open & What's Closed On Labour Day In Montreal

There are still a ton of things to do this Monday holiday!
  • Here's a short list of what's open and what's closed on Labour Day in Montreal.
  • If you're heading out, make sure to call ahead to your destination to inquire about reduced hours.

Yes, it's a long weekend! Three uninterrupted days to relax, have fun, and not think for two seconds about things like school or work, or other responsibilities until Tuesday morning. Not to be too depressing but it will be six weeks before we get another official long weekend. 

But let's focus on the positive! This is usually one of the summer weekends that people are trying to pack in their last days of camping or chalet time. But if you're planning to stay in the city it's good to know what's open and what's closed so you can plan out your Labour Day weekend.
