Winter Activities In Montreal

The city of Montreal is beautiful, historic and is the perfect place to explore and try out new things.  Head out to discover activities to do during the wintertime.

Relax at Spa St. James

Experience Canadian luxury with the Maple Sugar Nail Treatment at Spa St. James. This classic manicure and pedicure is topped with an exfoliating Canadian maple sugar cream mask. You are also invited to sip a glass of champagne or Canadian Maple tisane as you relax and unwind before exploring the city’s cultural offerings.
