Another a bit of winter time in Montreal, by now I had seenmost things in downtown, including all main museums, so I went to look for other things for my extra time in Montreal while visiting for Porsche Ice Force Plus:

The next day, I went to drive to Laval for a few other attractions, starting with Cosmodome. It's not a must do attraction, but I was curious to check it out since it was onthe way to Esterel:




the main attraction was a custom mission to mars or to the moon

I then checked out MontVR, it was ok enough, just worth the 1H I spent there ;)


From there was time for the Porsche Ice Experience during the few following days.

On the way back to the airport, I had most of a day, so I went to check out the Biodome and related attractions in downtown:
