A river runs through it

surfing Montreal’s St. Lawrence River


Montreal takes its name from the triplet of hills called Mount Royal that rise from the heart of the city, but its true life force lies in the St. Lawrence River. This waterway flows around the city, connecting it to the Great Lakes and, finally, the mighty Atlantic Ocean to the east.

A city where anything is possible

The early morning sun spears like an arrow through the buildings in old Batavia, illuminating an old man hosing down the cobblestones, while across the square a restaurateur arranges chairs and tables on the pavement then pulls down a colourful awning.
