  • We went in August, that the circuit was closed to traffic and we could wander around the circuit. There is an artificial Beach very close.

  • As a big fan of F1 I was so happy to have a chance to visit the circuit and to ride around. I stopped and took pictures there. Fun to see for most Formula One fans.  more »

  • Super circuit. True Formula 1 experience. Just right next to the Casino Montreal. Wonderful view of the river.
  • Good place to go biking if you want to go out of town but not quite on the other side of the Saint-Laurent river. The racing track is a Montreal's classic sport venue plus it is on a beautiful island with a lot of vegetation. The only downside is there is a lot of construction work in progress so sometimes the track is closed or they restrain access of certain parts of the track and the island.
  • A truly historic place that's hosting Formula 1 Canadian Grand Prix for like 60 years. It's one of the oldest circuits on the F1 calendar. Easily accessible through Jean drappeau metro(Yellow line). I was there for the 2017 race which was an awesome experience. Very easy to navigate through the circuit. Circuit is open for bicyclers and public in summer months. PS: I hold rights to all photographs posted here
  • I'm a huge race fan so it was amazing to be able to walk the F1 track. I should have rented bikes for use here
  • Excellent runway for your exercise. There are many beautiful natural landscapes on the pathway.

Where to stay in Montreal

If beautiful architecture and views over the water appeal, stay in the historic neighborhood of Vieux Montreal (Old Montreal), where you'll be a stone's throw from the best attractions in the city. If modern convenience is more important to you, look for accommodations in the downtown neighborhood of Centre-Ville, or head a bit farther out to the artsy district of Plateau Mont-Royal. LGBTI visitors might want to consider staying in The Village, Montreal's famously progressive hub of gay and lesbian culture.
