All the good reasons to be outside near Montreal

All the reasons are good for going out ! I share a few favourites that I can’t get enough of near Montreal. Maybe we’ll meet there this summer ?!

L'ombre des Cosmos, by Choses Communes

First of all, especially in the city centre, we have the chance to see ephemeral installations that add rhythm and colors to our metropolis. The project of my friend Madly designer of space, furniture and objects at Choses Communes, "L'ombre des Cosmos" does not fail to move us on the Square Victoria.

The Cap-Saint-Jacques

The beach of Cap-Saint-Jacques at the tip of the island on the edge of Lake Deux Montagnes, allows us spontaneous days full of beauties. An impromptu picnic, the beach towel rolled under one arm, the Tres dion basket in the other and ride along until sunset. Feet in the sand surrounded by beautiful nature, pure happiness!

The Montreal Botanical Garden

My all-season classic, the Jardin Botanique de Montréal. Did you know that my urban oasis is one of the largest and most beautiful botanical gardens in the world? Arm yourself with your camera to capture its collection of 22,000 plant species and cultivars, its 10 exhibition greenhouses, its thirty theme gardens such as the Chinese Garden, the Japanese Garden, the First Nations Garden, the Rose Garden, the Sub-Nation Gardenwood, arboretum and several other themed gardens.

The Boucherville islands

The river shuttle connects the banks of Boucherville to Boucherville Islands National Park. Embark in the direction of the island Grosbois to access an infinite cycle path. That’s not all! In Boucherville Islands National Park, there are several outdoor activities available to you. From hiking to water activities, there is even the possibility of camping on site in ready-to-camp tents. I suggest that you reserve your place at the Sepaq.
