Montreal Olympic Squirrels Tour will be starting at the gates of McGill University, the most prestigious university in Canada and home of 12 Nobel Prizes. This is where Ernest Rutherford discovered the atom in 1908. We`ll take a trip through the city Arts and Festival area, In summer there are the Jazz and Comedy festivals featuring more than 300 separate concerts, many free and outdoor.
On through Lafontaine Park. In the summer, there’s no better place to have a picnic, play tennis or petanque. Come winter, skaters happily glide across the frozen pond to music while snowshoers and cross-country skiers take to the snowy paths.
Out to the Olympic Stadium, scene of the 1976 Olympics known for Nadia Comaneci and the first ever 10.0 gymnastic performances. We`ll cruise by Saputo Stadium home of the Montreal Impact MLS soccer team; the Planetarium and Biodome with its amazing tropical and polar habitats. We’ll look in on the Botanical Gardens and make our way back to city via the squirrels of the park, thorough some of the bohemian eating areas of the Plateau up to the entrance to Mount Royal Park from which Montréal draws its name. Here is the famous statue of Georges-Etienne Cartier one of the founding fathers of modern Canada. We will come back through McGill campus to our starting point.
