Laval is brimming with recreational activities to suit every taste! Whether you seek outdoor pursuits, trendy restaurants or zany entertainment at Centropolis, the island has just as much to offer as its neighbour to the south. Besides miles of bike, cross-country ski and snowshoe trails, Laval offers some 60 km of snowmobile runs. You can even cross the island from east to west! 

Location and access

Laval, a city that covers the entire surface area of Île Jésus (240 km2), is adjacent to Montréal and accessible by metro.


Laval is bathed by the waters of the Mille-Îles and Des Prairies rivers, both tributaries of magnificent Lac des Deux Montagnes, which is fed by the mighty Ottawa River.
