Montreal Snow Village  Snow-Village Montreal Snow Village Montreal

Baby it’s cold outside.  This defines Montreal in winter.  Snuggling up, staying warm, wearing fur boots (don’t forget your fur hat, ears get cold) all make for a perfect romantic vacation and great singles vacation. Who knew that building igloos would be so fun or that your vodka glass would be made of ice ? (so is the bar & bed)  With its French heritage (the second largest French speaking city in the world) this diversified city combines Vieux (old) and new seamlessly.
