Explore activities

Montreal is the second-largest city in Canada, second only to Toronto, and houses one of the world’s populations of French-speaking inhabitants. The city itself lies on Montreal Island, the largest of the 234 islands that make up the Hochelaga archipelago.

Over 1.5 million people reside in Montreal with people immigrating from all over the world to enjoy the slice of the city’s growing prosperity. During the winter, the iconic city is often dressed in a blanket of white snow and brisk winds bombard the city from the west. The summer, on the other hand, produces a mild climate with warm sunny days and temperatures of up to 30°C. 

Montreal’s diverse climate, influential geographical location and contributions to the global economy have made the city a thriving cosmopolitan metropolis. It’s no surprise, then, that Montreal is the perfect place to host a team-building getaway. There’s no end to the activities that one can undertake here, from expert cookery courses to spooky guided ghost tours.
