Planning an upcoming visit to Mount Royal?

You’re in luck because there’s always something to see and do on the mountain, no matter the season or the weather! Les amis de la montagne provides a host of services and activities that make coming to Montréal’s mountain an experience you won’t soon forget. Discover all the things you can see and do in Mount Royal Park and on the mountain!
Forget summer in the city: beat the heat in Mount Royal Park! Come enjoy its cool shade, winding forest paths and outstanding views as you explore these summertime ideas:
  • Paddle a rowboat or rent a remote-controlled sailboat across Beaver Lake
  • Participate in free environmental stewardship activities
  • Join a discovery walk or guided tour
  • Treat yourself to drinks and a bite to eat at one of our outdoor cafés
Fall foliage on the mountain hits its peak once the days get shorter and the nights grow colder. Come admire the mountain in all its majestic glory while participating in our autumn activities:
  • Take part in environmental stewardship activities until the end of October
  • Learn about Mount Royal’s territory, history and biodiversity in our guided nature walks
  • Head indoors for a warm drink and a snack at the Café des amis
  • Visit our free exhibition on Mount Royal in Smith House
Mount Royal lies at the heart of Montréal’ love of winter sports and activities. Make the most of the cold months by following our suggestions for fun in the snow:
  • Join our snowshoeing treks to experience the mountain’s tranquility and magical views
  • Lace up your skates and take a twirl on the free outdoor refrigerated skating rink, which is especially cool during our weekend musical evenings
  • Gear up for thrills as you coast downhill on snow tubes
  • Explore over 22 km of cross-country ski trails on your own or with our experienced instructors during our cross-country lessons
  • Try your hand at various winter sports such as snowshoeing, cross-country skiing or skiing in the park thanks to our outdoor equipment rental service
  • Observe the many winter birds in the park
The mountain springs to life during May: Mount Royal Month! Our annual Mount-Royal Clean-Up day kicks off a fun-filled season featuring discovery walks as well as cultural and recreational activities to put a spring in your step!
