Me, myself and Montréal

Montréal shines for solo travellers

Travelling solo is a uniquely wonderful experience — you get to do what you want, when you want. For starters, the many festivals throughout the year provide a perfect backdrop for mingling, or to simply sit back and watch the crowds. Pull up a bar stool at Vin Papillion or Garde Manger, and chat with the bartender. Hop on a BIXI and discover the many green spaces across the city, such as Parc Laurier (a favourite with locals). If you want anonymity, Montréal gives plenty of space. If you want company, the locals have plenty to say. All you have to do is show up.

Solo-friendly Montréal

In Montréal, a bit of gumption goes a long way for a solo traveller. You can, of course, spend as much time as you need enjoying the comfort of your hotel room. But when you’re ready to get out there and roam, here’s where to start.

  1. Appreciate the collections at the Museum of Fine Arts
  2. Rent a bike and cruise along the Lachine Canal
  3. Sample the foods at the Jean-Talon Market
  4. Discover the city by foot with Spade & Palacio Tours
  5. Shop the boutiques of Saint-Paul Street
