Take flights to Montreal and you’ll be bowled over by this “French” city in North America. It’s a cosmopolitan, creative city with pockets of counter-culture unrivalled by any other in Canada. Effortlessly cool, it stands head and shoulders above the likes of Ottawa, Toronto or Winnipeg. Amazing events such as the Montreal Just for Laughs Festival, the Montreal Jazz Festival and Igloofest, the electronic music festival, mean there’s not much down time in its calendar. Montreal is the only Canadian city that hosts an annual Formula 1 Grand Prix. It has a fascinating and rich architectural heritage. Old Montreal is stunning and museums such as the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and the McCord Museum of Canadian History bring it all to life. Active holidaymakers can rent some roller blades or a bike to enjoy the surroundings of the Lachine Canal to work off that poutine you had for dinner.
Skiers and snowboarders look for cheap Montreal flights in the wintertime, bound for Mont Tremblant or the super cool resort at Mont Saint Sauveur. If you’re considering taking return flights to Montreal during the summer months, Mont Tremblant is open year-round. In recent years, music lovers have taken direct flights to Montreal to hear the likes of Chromeo, Arcade Fire, Footprintz and DJ A-Trak, just a few of the artists to have made it big in the mainstream, and underground. Montreal is home to Stereo, the world-famous nightclub that has been touted by many dance music luminaries as “the best club in the world”. Those who’ve spent all weekend dancing beneath its glittery disco ball will testify to that. Meanwhile, all over town there are plenty of great clubs and bars to investigate. It’s a city that you cannot fail to fall in love with.
