Fabulous riding along the canal and can then ride through lovely neighborhoods all the way to St Anne de Bellevue. Construction and confusing sections in the city can be difficult but once you find your way beyond that the ride is spectacular. Don't leave your...More

Never overcrowded. A gentle place to pause and reflect. Nice little restos to choose and enjoy. Not overpriced. Just sip a glass of wine...and dine.

You can easily make 40-50 km on bike by canal. This is, together with paths on south shore, by far the best biking place i Montreal. Al by the water, no other traffic, dedictaed bike paths.

The four of us rented bikes and set off along the canal. We stopped to provision at the Atwater Market, and at about mile nine we stopped for a lovely lunch. We joyfully completed the the next nine miles happy, invigorated, and somewhat tired. Ready...More

This Canal was described as an “escape from the city”. Couldn’t have been more wrong! There is construction all along the Canal. There were several buildings being built and construction on the walking path itself. Very noisy and a not a pleasant walk at all....More

One of the best open spaces in the area approx 14 km of canal to walk, cycle or run if your that way inclined a truly peaceful and lovely area well worth the visit.

Still has signs of the industrialisation that took place many years ago. Now just a nice place to bike/stroll or even Sun bathe! Feels like a neighborhood with a community spirit. Market nearby. Not surrounded by restaurants and yuppies.

This is one of the nicest walks one can have in Montreal. It is also possible to rent a bike or a kayak.

There's nothing quite like getting away from the bustle of Montreal for a few hours to walk, run, or bike along the Canal-de-Lachine, especially in the warmer months of the year.

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and
commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship
stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate
headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by
nightfall transforms from a business district into a
youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young
