What A Beautiful Indian Summer In Canada

I must say, I love this gorgeous Indian Summer weather here in Canada. The weather is almost perfect, with the sun shining brightly and the temperatures sitting comfortably in the high 20s to low 25s. 


You don’t need a bulky sweater YET!! It truly feels like nature is giving us one last gift before the colder months set in. The scenery is just breathtaking, with the leaves on the trees turning brilliant shades of orange, red, and gold, it’s a perfect time to take a stroll through the park, go for a car ride, or go to see the animals at the Ecomuseum.

There’s just something special about this time of year, and I’m going to make the most out of it while it lasts.o.

Taking a drive to admire the fall foliage.

Where are the fall colors in Montreal / Ottawa

1*Mount Royal

Mount Royal, a beloved mountain, offers magical views of the changing colours of the trees from any spot, including the lookouts and paths.


2*City parks

This city that boasts an abundance of greenery, with exceptional neighbourhood parks such as Parc La Fontaine and Westmount Park. Other stunning parks, such as Park Jean Drapeau, Park Maisonneuve, and Park Angrignon, showcase multicoloured trees during the fall season.


3*The Ecomuseum

During the fall season and Halloween, this location provides a fun and enjoyable experience for children of all ages to enjoy.


4*Just out of town

You can easily reach numerous nature retreats that offer breathtaking views within a short 45-minute drive from Montréal. Begin with the Morgan Arboretum in Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue, a nature reserve that boasts beautiful walking trails.


Discover some incredible day trips just one to two hours outside the city by taking a short drive. The Eastern Townships, offer stunning views of flat farmland and gently rolling hills. 


This region is home to some of the province’s most picturesque small towns, such as North Hatley, Eastman, Knowlton, Frelighsburg, and Sutton. Meanwhile, the Laurentians, located north of Montreal, are heavily wooded and provide an idyllic setting to witness the changing of the leaves.


5*And further, In Ottawa

I’ve had the opportunity to visit some favourite fall destinations as well as explore new places this year. While Gatineau Park is stunning during Fall Rhapsody, it can be overcrowded to the point of being inaccessible. 


Therefore, this post focuses on other fantastic locations around Ottawa to witness the beautiful autumn foliage. Gatineau Park will also be highlighted at the end of the post for its undeniable beauty.

  1. An Indian summer in Canada looks like the perfect get-away this year. We live quite close to the border so this would be a lovely September or October family trip!
