The holidays’ magic takes hold of Montreal


The holiday season is just around the corner and the city of Montreal has created a festive atmosphere.

Once again, there are many activities that are offered throughout the month of December to accompany you with your celebrations.

Discover everything that awaits you in the Anjou’s borough during the upcoming winter.

Amazing outdoors activities

During your next visit in Montreal during the cold season, why not enjoy some outdoor activities? In many areas of the city you’ll be able to practice various winter sports and participate in several activities.

As a matter of fact, Anjou’s district puts at your disposal several ice rings and ice rinks. Ice skating, a too often forgotten sport, is a fun and free activity to do with your family and friends.

Grab your skates and visit the following locations in the borough to get some fresh air: Spalding Park, Talcy Park, Roseraies Park, Lucie-Bruneau Park, and Roger-Rousseau Park.

You can access these locations both during the daytime and at night.

Close to the Royal Versailles Hotel, you will also find Maisonneuve Park. In its places, you can not only skate, but also cross-country skiing and sledding.

The warm winter of Space for Life

If you prefer to spend your time indoors, the Montreal Botanical Garden, Insectarium, and Biodôme will also be accessible.

Counteract winter’s cold days by spending a nice warm moment in the greenhouses of the Botanical Garden.

You will immediately feel like you are in a lush tropical forest, which will make you quickly forget December’s harsh temperature.

For several years now, visitors of the Biodôme have been invited to the special Christmas for the Animal event that is held on December 26th.

During the visit, you will witness unique moments featuring the furry little friends who will try their best to open their gifts containing their favorite food.

Get the tour package to access the Biodôme, the Botanical Garden and the Insectarium and make sure you spend a great moment with your family.

The Kingdom of Santa Claus

Whether you are looking for a last-minute gift or to introduce your children to Santa’s wonderful Kingdom, the Galeries d’Anjou is the place to go to.

North Pole’s very special guest will make his appearance at the borough’s shopping center from November 18 to December 24 of 2017.

This year, in addition to Santa’s regular visiting hours, some time slots will also be available to plan ahead your meeting with him.

In one case or the other, all children will be given a very little special present to mark this magical moment.

Finally, you will be given the opportunity to immortalize this family moment forever as a photographer will be on hand.

If you plan to attend any of these events, you should also plan your stay at the Royal Versailles Hotel.

The staff members will gladly welcome you in a magical setting, reminiscent of Christmas’ jolly season.

Book your room without further delay and come spend a nice warm moment in our establishment.
