Why charter a bus for Mount Royal

Mont Royal’s size makes it tough to see everything in a day. But if you plan correctly, you can have your door-to-door shuttle service drop you off at the north end of the park to start your day and pick you back up at the park’s southern edge in the afternoon. This will give you plenty of time to enjoy the trails, take pictures, and stop by a few historical landmarks in the park. Larger groups can enjoy the comforts of a coach bus or minibus while a school bus would be a better choice for organizing a class field trip to Mont Royal. 

About the surrounding area

Mont Royal is bordered by Park Avenue to the northeast and Cote-des-Neiges Road to the southwest. If you want to drive along the western edge of the park to scope out some potential landmarks, instruct your driver to utilize the Voie Camillien-Houde. Along this route, you’ll find the Belvedere Camillien-Houde, which is a very popular tourist attraction for taking splendid photos with the Montreal cityscape in the background.    If your group gets a little tired walking through the park, head on over to the Mont Royal Chalet for a little caffeine boost. This chalet is located within a historic cottage built in 1932 and offers outdoor seating with excellent city views. Also within the boundaries of the park, you’ll find Café des Amis on the western edge of Beaver Lake.    Once you’ve thoroughly explored all of the natural wonders of Mont Royal, there are several quality restaurants nearby. If you head north into Little Portugal, you’ll find a number of options including Romados for Portuguese fare and Aux Vivres Plateau for vegan options. One of the most trendy bars in this area is called Fitzroy and it offers a total of 15 pool tables so you can drink and enjoy some casual competition. 

About the Olympic Stadium

Some call it a small mountain. Some call it a hill. But whichever way you lean, Mont Royal offers some of the best panoramic views of Montreal without actually having to leave the city. It is part of a longer chain of hills called the Monteregian Hills, which lie between the Laurentians to the northwest and the Appalachian Mountains to the southeast.

 

The park that surrounds Mont Royal is one of the city’s most sizable green spaces. It features a number of winding nature trails and boat rentals for those interested in going on a quick paddle on Beaver Lake. The park was first inaugurated in 1876 and was actually designed by the same man who designed New York’s Central Park, Frederick Law Olmsted. It covers more than 200 hectares and offers Montreal residents year-round outdoor recreation opportunities. 

 

Mont Royal is one of the most highly visual landmarks in the St. Lawrence Valley. As such, it was designated as a Historic and Natural District by the Quebec government in 2005. It is actually the first place to receive such a designation in the entire province. The park boasts a number of eco-friendly activities for visitors to enjoy, including birdwatching, snowshoeing excursions, ice skating, and participating in the park’s Annual Mountain Clean-Up Day!
