We absolutely loved the sights all around us as this was so much different then the flat land we live in in Florida. The mountains were majestic and all covered with snow making this a wonderland for winter lovers. Even though the roads are pretty tough to drive on, the views all around make up for it. What a beautiful... More

The drive up from Montreal to Mont Tremblant is spectacular summer and winter. Ski slopes on all sides, little villages - something right out of old Europe. Hiking-Biking-Skiing -Swimming, Quebecors are lucky to have a place like this so close by. The drive to Mt Tremblant is around 1.5 hours - the village at the bottom built by Intrawest is... More

I lived in Val David for a few years when I was growing up - right up the street from Pere Noel Village, next to the Duquette Farm. The montreal laurentians are second to none when it comes to an escape from the city. If I had a complaint it would be the mossquitos - or as we call them... More

Been going to the Laurentians all my life. Great mountains, lakes, hiking, biking, skiing, food and fun roads to cycle or motorcycle on. If you are visiting Montreal or Ottawa, discover the Laurentian mountains and its massive beauty and charm.

a ZEN moment to visit the oldest mountains on the planet. With the right lighting they provide truly memorable views with all kinds of wonderful stops along the way. Restaurants are readily available with as much variety in choice as well as quality. For those who like to take nature walks,all kinds of options are available.

There are plenty of interesting spots in the countryside / mountains just an hour's drive north of Montreal: great hiking / biking / skiing, camping as well as shops, restaurants, spas and hotels. St. Sauveur is nearby and Mt. Tremblant is a bit further north - it is touristy but there are many fun activities.

We hired a car for a day and drove into the Laurentian Mountains. It was well worth it for the great small towns in the area and the fantastic scenery. Getting there was easy along route 15 and the attractions are well sign-posted. We probably missed the best of the autumn colours as we visited at the end of October,... More
