Sunset and Navigation

A Private Tour and Team Building Activity in Montréal

Show your team the best sunset spot in Montréal

Along the way, they'll work together in groups to answer questions about Earth's rotation, sunset time, direction, and more to see the sunset in a whole new way.

What They'll See and Learn

Your team will walk away confident with new knowledge about the sky:

  • how to use the free Stellarium Mobile app to find objects in the night sky
  • how to witness the rotation of Earth in real-time
  • why the length of the day changes through the year
  • why the Sunset position changes through the year
  • become more familiar with "Montréal North"
  • learn about Montreal's best sunset spot

Team Challenge

On arrival, members will be split into 3 teams.

Using GooseChase (iPhone, Android), teams will see point-based challenges they'll need to work together on during the tour. The team with the most points will be declared winners. If you'd like, we can organize a prize for the winners 😉

After the tour, all the question responses and photos will be collected into a folder you can share with your team.



We'll meet at Parc Beaubien Outremont about 1 hour before sunset.

After introductions and setting your groups up, we'll begin hiking up the trails to Belvédère Outremont. We'll arrive before the Sun sets on the horizon.

  • $250 non-refundable deposit taken at booking

All prices in CAD, not including GST+QST.

If cost is a concern for your group, get in contact using the form below and we'll work something out.

In the days leading up to the event, I'll give weather reports for our planned event. 

The event will only be cancelled if it's raining or snowing. If it's cloudy, it's not the most ideal conditions, but your team will still learn a lot and have a great time.

If we need to cancel the event, we have several backup options:

  • do an on-site event at your office for a presentation about astronomy apps
  • reschedule for another day

If we need do an on-site event, I will reduce the charge per attendee to $20 each.

Path up to Belvedere Outremont

This tour involves a 20-30 minute walk up to the Belvédère Outremont. For the last 10 minutes, we walk along an inclined gravel path that some folks might find difficult.

However, we go up slowly and take breaks along the way.

Unfortunately, this path is not easily wheelchair accessible. If you have folks with those needs, I recommend taking one of my other tours which can be done at your workplace or in a more accessible park

Yes, we can plan an itinerary for your team to incorporate dinner and drinks.

Yes, this activity can be adapted to your needs.

  • Don't want the scavenger hunt aspect? No prob.
  • Want to have it be more of a park hang with food and drinks and a telescope tour? Sure thing!

Just get in touch and we'll find a schedule perfect for your group.

The host is Trevor Kjorlien, Space Educator and founder of Plateau Astro.

He has been doing space outreach in Montréal since 2013. He has been featured and has contributed to local press including CBC, CTV, and Global.
