A vast country with four diverse and distinct seasons, Canada offers adventure and discovery opportunites that change throughout the year – a varying playground to serve your seminar or incentive event
WINTER Discover Canada in her snowy attire, where you can explore by snowmobile, by dogsled or on snowshoes. Bright winter skies are the trademarks of Canadian winters. Did you know that between November and March, Montreal enjoys 40% more sunshine than Paris? You can stop and warm up with the traditional hospitality of local gastronomy, or is an afternoon at a Nordic spa more your style? And there’s nothing like an evening of hockey at the Bell Center to totally immerse you in a culture where hockey is like a religion, and everyone is swept up in the excitement!
SPRING The thaw frees an abundance of nature, as trees and flowers prepare to explode into bloom. The sap flowing in maple trees signals the start of sugaring off, and sugar shacks open and offer the flavour of the season in traditional cuisine. As the temperature warms up, you can try a breathtaking adventure, shooting the rapids aboard a zodiac, at the very foot of the Montreal skyline!
Summer is a wonderful time to hold an incentive event in Canada. You can explore the beauty of the countryside from the wheel of a 4X4 all terrain vehicle, or at the paddle of a rabaska canoe on lakes too numerous to count. Lunch at an Amerindian site will let you experience the richness of native culture, celebrating traditions that date back to a time before colonisation. Nature is always nearby, and there`s nothing like a glimpse of moose or bear, or perhaps whales from a cruiseboat – or up close in a zodiac craft.
And of course, unforgettable Autumn, the season of the colours. As September draws to a close, forests come alive with the hues of changing leaves, most remarkable being those of the maple. What a photogenic time to hold a rally, through the forest paths or along lakeshore panoramas. A unique stop is Cap Tourmente, where tens of thousands of wild Snow Geese pause on their migration south, and fill the fields and the skies.
