Montreal Botanical Garden

The Montreal Botanical Garden features 22,000 species of local plants and exotic flora across more than 20 themed gardens.

La Grande Roue de Montreal

Head over to the banks of the St. Lawrence River while holidaying on return flights to Montreal, and you’ll find La Grande Roue de Montreal.

La Grande Roue has 360° views over the region and looks out over the historic buildings of Vieux Montreal, the peak of Mont-Royal, and islands in the St. Lawrence River. The wheel operates all year, so you can take a scenic ride on it no matter what time of year you book cheap flights to Montreal.

The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts

The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts is Canada’s largest and oldest art museum. Its collection is spread across five pavilions and each one focuses on a different area of art. One showcases artists from Quebec and Canada, while others display pieces from international artists. You’ll see everything from classic European art to contemporary paintings to photography to sculptures. The MMFA is always exciting to visit, but definitely make sure it’s on your to-do list if you book winter flights to Montreal – it’s one of the city’s top indoor activities for when you need to escape the cold.
