Laurentian Mountains are so close to Montreal that you can easily go skiing for the day. In winter, there is also dog sledding and ice skating. Other times of the year, enjoy whale watching, mountain biking and kayaking.

These were amazing! What beautiful views! The village of Mont-Tremblant was perfect for tourists. There was outdoor activities such as cycling and hiking as well as boat tours and cruises. Plenty of restaurants and small cafes. For kids there was an adventure activity area with trampolines and climbing walls among others. This would be a lovely place to stay in... More

I prefer hiking in the wild, but this was all maps and signs. It's also so heavily forested that you can't see the views.

people like to make a big deal of the laurentians, but my experience has been different. i fnd that as an area there is really not that much to do, and the scenery is no different from the eastern townships or northern vermont and new york. for the most part if is an area with quite ugly towns, people that...

My daughter and I cycled the P'tit Train du Nord linear trail from Mont Laurier to St Jerome, then took a train to Montreal, stayed two nights there and then back the same way. We camped at sites along the trail and for the most part, we enjoyed our trip. The scenery is spectacular and all the places we stopped... More

We originally were going to visit the mountains as a day trip from Montreal but ended up camping in Parc Tremblant instead. Great choice! We absolutely loved the hiking and water sports available in the mountains - they were just beautiful. The mountains are absolutely worth the drive for a day trip or extended stay!

Laurentian mountains are about 90 minutes drive due north from Montreal and is worth a trip if you are visiting Montreal or if you are just a resident trying to find something interesting to do with family. Nestled in a ranges of mountains and valleys, there are a number of small villages and cities all along the route and each... More

A couple of central towns good to visit, lots of small ones. The biggie is Mont Tremblant which includes the more quaint village of Saint Jovite. Mont Tremblant also has an original small village away from the ski hill area (that village smaller than Saint Jovite). Mont Tremblant is an hour and a half to two hour drive. After you... More

Rented a car from Avis for the day to go to St. Donat Quebec. STAY AWAY FROM AVIS CAR RENTAL. THEY ABUSE THE CREDIT CARD ON FILE AND MAKE IT NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE TO TALK TO ANYONE TO FIX UNWARRANTED ADDITIONAL CHARGES LONG AFTER THE CAR IS RETURNED. Beware abusive charges on your credit card after returning the car. On a... More
