Montreal is famous for world-class educational institutions, history, art, culture, festivals, attractions, landmarks, and food. The multicultural environment makes Montreal one of the unique and attractive destinations for tourists. Montreal is the largest French-speaking city in Canada.

Besides, Montreal is a perfect destination for tourists during the winter season, boasting picturesque scenery, a clean climate, unmatched warmth, and perfect harmony with nature. There are dozens of places to visit and hundreds of things to do in Montreal. In today’s article, we will highlight the best fall activities around Montreal in 2021. Read on!

1.    Visit Parc Jean-Drapeau

Parc Jean-Drapeau is one of the most family-friendly places to explore during the winter season. Although many people head to the mountains when fall arrives, we suggest visiting Park Jean-Drapeau if you want to have a unique experience on the two relic islands.

It is a perfect place to enjoy sunny days during the winter season. You can explore and learn about the leftover ruins of Expo 67 and take photos/videos to create memories. We recommend having a picnic on beds of autumn leaves falling to the ground. Afternoon and evening times create a great atmosphere at the historic gym “Parc Jean-Drapeau.”

2.    Explore Labonté de la Pomme

Labonté de la Pomme is one of the most beautiful valleys near Montreal. It is about a 45-minute drive from Downtown Montreal, a perfect place to pick your favorite vegetables and fruits, including apples, pears, plums, and pumpkins.

Labonté de la Pomme offers a wide range of family-friendly activities, including pick-your-own fruit, site interpretation, maze, plant life and wildlife observation, motorized tour, mini-farm, picnic area, children games, and delicious food.

3.    Hiking at Mont St-Hilaire

Autumn and fall in Montreal is the best time for hiking, allowing you to enjoy the picturesque views of Quebec. If you want to stay around Montreal, we recommend exploring the hike trails about a 1.5-hour drive from the city. Mont Saint-Hilaire, also known as Mount Saint-Hilaire, is 1,358 feet high hill in Southern Quebec. It is located east of Montreal, about 30km kilometers, at Richelieu River.

Although McGill University owns the property, it has opened the western part of the mountain to tourists and visitors. Not only is this best perfect for hiking, but it also offers cross-country skiing opportunities. Some of the best hiking trails at Mont Saint-Hilaire to explore are:

  • Passerelle (0.4km)
  • Burned Hill (1.3 km)
  • Pain de sucre (2.6 km)
  • Lac Hertel (0.5 km)
  • Dieppe (3.7 km)
  • Mauve (4.9 km)
  • Rocky (8.8 km)

4.    Parc National Du Mont Tremblant

Parc National Du Mont-Tremblant is another place to visit if you want to relish the scenic beauty of Sac-a-Commis Stream, the labyrinth of old roads, and the warmth of nature. Visiting the area is an excellent way to enjoy holidaying in Montreal. You can rent a cabin and relish leisurely hours or go for outdoor activities, including:

  • Bike riding in the striking nature
  • Tonga Lumina night walk
  • Zip-line through the mountains
  • A Gondola ride
  • Kids pirate park

Moreover, you can relax your mind during the fall season by spending a day at one of the spas in Mont-Tremblant. We recommend undergoing the traditional Finnish hydrotherapy session, deep tissue massage, and ice cider body wrap to soothe your skin and relax your mind. If you are travelling with friends, don’t forget to spend a few hours at the Casino de Mont-Tremblant. Indeed, you will have a memorable night with your friends.

5.    Walking around the Old Port

Montreal’s Old Port is perfect for people who are looking for a nice fall activity.

A short walk in the old port is always memorable, whether it is along the water or wether it is in the historical corridors.

The tree leaf’s colours changing next to the grand roue or the view of the Southshore and the islands, it is always worth it.

Besides, the restaurant in the area is exceptional when you are looking to enjoy delicious food.

Canadian Born Brand

Pokète is a new Canadian brand born out of the need for women to have functional and practical clothing and accessories with pockets. Its focus is on making women’s lives easier. The styling is timeless and great quality because women should love what they wear and be able to keep clothing for many many years. All styles feature hidden zip pockets to keep valuables safe. 

Inspired by Everyday Experiences

Pokète’s collection is inspired by a few common and everyday experiences. These include travelling (or not), taking the dog for a walk or going to play in the park with kids, all without having to drag an oversized bag. Also, wearing clothing and accessories with pockets that look great and are not clumsy or bulky is a nice addition to the wardrobe.

The Founder

Andrea Majnemer is the founder and “Head Pokèteer” behind the brand. She used her extensive years in the fashion industry to bring this idea to fruition. The lightbulb moment to jumpstart the project was her lifechanging cornea transplant that restored her vision. This event propelled her desire to see as much of the world as possible and instilled immense gratitude for her recovered independence.  She sees Pokète evolving into offering more items, ideas and services around making all women’s lives easier.
