Best Socially-Distant Road Trips to Take This Summer

We know that Covid-19 has messed with many summer vacations – including ours. But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Get our of your Montreal student residence and check out our list of alternative vacations that you can take (near the Montreal area), while remaining 100% socially distant.

Quebec City


Beautiful and rich with history, take a train up to Quebec city for a few days. You will be absolutely astounded by the beautiful streets, quaint shops, and historical landmarks.

Mont Tremblant


Typically regarded as a winter ski destination, Mont Tremblant and Tremblant village in the summer is absolutely dreamy! If you are partial to adventure, hiking, cycling, and rides up the mountain, leave your Montreal student residence behind and head to Mont Tremblant!

Ottawa /Gatineau


Ottawa is like Montreal’s little sister – and that alone makes it worth the visit. Ok, maybe not, but what does make it worth the visit is that it boasts something for everyone. History lovers and art fanatics will enjoy the galleries and parliament buildings, whereas outdoorsy types can head across the bridge to Gatineau for some gorgeous views while hiking. Oh and did we forget to mention Nordik Spa will take you to another heaven? Definitely worth the visit!



Head to Canada’s biggest city to enjoy living it up in style. Deemed a mini New York, Toronto has everything from posh bars and vibrant Distillery District, to the Royal Ontario Museum and Yorkville. Worth the trip in our books!



If you’re looking for a luxury weekend getaway in the woods, there’s no luxury camping in Canada quite like heading to the Muskokas. Yours to discover, this area outside of Toronto is truly a breath of fresh air.
