Québec's second-largest city, Laval is situated on the same archipelago as Montréal.
Map of Laval and points of interest
The city's residents are nothing if not ingenious, and have turned a former quarry in their midst into a nature centre perfect for the whole family. Here you can rent boats, visit farm animals and while away the winter days on cross-country ski trails and toboggan runs. At the all-new Cosmodome, the Canadian Space Camp will introduce young people to the wonders of space, while the Science Centre, Canada's first space museum, is sure to enthral young and old alike.
Laval's location makes it ideally suited to canoeing, in particular at the Parc de la Rivière-des-Mille-Iles.
