The Festival City of Montreal

Distance from Mont Tremblant National Park to Montreal 125km I knew I was going to fall in love with Montreal. Music, art, cafe culture… yes please!

Black skies, torrential rain and rumbling clouds. Trial by fire for the first Canadian driving experience then. After picking up our little hire…
