Montreal: Mount Royal
Mount Royal is the big hilly mountain visible from anywhere downtown, meaning even if you failed year 10 Geography and can’t read a map, you can still find your way to the base. Once here, there are a number of different walking paths you can take to reach the summit. It’s a lovely walk (around 7km) through Canadian forestry. At its peak you’re rewarded with a view that overlooks the entire city. I recommend doing this early on during your stay (and not whilst hungover), as it’s a great way to orient yourself. If you share the same fitness level as a Biggest Loser contestant and struggle to do up your own shoes, don’t fret about missing out. There’s a bus that takes you directly to the top, departing from the Metro Station. And yes, there are food outlets once you get there!
