Montreal is beautiful in all seasons, but depending on your interests, certain times of the year are best. Here are some tips on when to go to Montreal.

High tourist season: mid-May to mid-October, mid-December to January, and February. Lovers of nature and the outdoors will certainly find their happiness at all times, but summer and winter are more suitable for outdoor activities. However, the magic of the colours in autumn (September and October) is worth a visit. In the summer, Montreal lives to the rhythm of festivals of all kinds, especially in June and July. Although many major festivals offer year-round programming, summer becomes a pretext to transform streets, esplanades and parks into real open-air popular festivals. To live a total experience at the heart of the purest traditions of Quebec, winter is the perfect time to do so. Snowshoeing, dog sledding, snowmobiling, ice fishing, hockey, Montreal winter carnival... It is also the ideal time to try traditional dishes such as tourtière, cipaille, stewed meatballs and other hearty dishes that will help you hold out during the cold

Low tourist season: mid-October to mid-December, January, March and April to mid-May. As early as March, a trip to the sugar shack is a must
