Locals of Bonaventure and tourists both agree that Parc du Mont-Royal is a great place to go for a hike and to take in the scenery the area has to offer. Hiking in the area is often enjoyed most when the weather begins warming up and the chance for rain is low. Considering this, it would be recommended to fly to Bonaventure during June, July, and August to take advantage of the warmer weather and go for a hike. Hikers looking for a more family-friendly day in the great outdoors would be best suited to plan their flight to Bonaventure for June, July, and August, when they can visit Vieux-Port de Montréal and enjoy all that the park has to offer.
Most people head to the ski mountains during January, when the chance of fresh snow and ideal temperatures are most likely. Ski mountains such as Mont-Tremblant Ski Resort are very popular in Bonaventure. Alternatively, Mont Sainte-Anne is also a very popular ski mountain in the Bonaventure area.
