The Promenade Fleuve-Montagne is a pedestrian link between Montréal’s two iconic natural features. Enjoy the unique experience of being guided through Montréal’s most emblematic sites. Just follow the path.
This 3.8 km path is a pedestrian link between the St. Lawrence River to the south and Mont Royal to the north. The first in the city’s network of urban parkways, it is one of the legacies of the 375th anniversary of the founding of Montréal.
