A skating rink with Montreal’s Old Port as the backdrop – talk about picturesque.

The Natrel Skating Rink at the Old Port is returning to Montreal on December 8.

Known for its outstanding quality of ice, excellent facilities, and breathtaking views of the city and the Saint Lawrence River, this is the place to go skating in Montreal.

There’s no better way to stick it to winter than bundling up and hitting the ice.

The chilled rink features a cozy village right in front of the ice and is a puck’s throw away from Bistro Bonsecours for a little post-game refresher.


Open from December 8 until March 10, skaters will have three months to take advantage of one of the city’s best winter attractions.

Natrel’s Skating Rink plays rock, classical and jazz music on large outdoor speakers to add to your soundtrack of whizzing down the ice.

The 2,500 square metre rink is also the site for the Old Port’s fireworks display, starting in mid-December.

Sharpen those skates and tighten your laces, the Old Port boasts some of the nicest ice in the city. Plus, it’s oozing with Instagram photo opportunities.
