Spent a week at the amateur music camp on Lake MacDonald. Overall, a wonderful experience. Both intensive (rising early and classes through the day) and extremely relaxing (lots of socializing and a lovely wooded location). The level of instruction is very high, but without pressure or formality. Highly recommended to anyone who likes to play music with others and would... More

This is certainly an all season playground. The many lakes, Mountains trails lodges restaurants and other tourist infrastructure serve for all sports and activities. The people are extremely friendly especially with a polite word in French from time to time to show respect, just like when visiting European countries. Mont Tremblant in the north Laurentians is a world class village... More

The whole area is so quaint and there are little villages and roads that are waiting to be discovered. Tucked away are luxury hotels, artist fairs and workshops and delightful restaurants. We stayed at a b&b so our host have us lots of insider information.

We always visit the Laurentians when in Montreal. There are go carts, water slides, boat rides, fishing on the lake and the food. Oh so French bistro.

We spent a day exploring the Larentian Mountains. It really is a complete change of scenery. We stopped at one or two different Villages and had a wander. We particularly liked Val David, which had an Arts Trail- but drew the line at purchasing the 'I <3 VD' T shirt and can only feel that it is more a purchase... More

No matter the season, this is always a beautiful place to visit. Ski, mountain bike, golf or look at the leaves changing color. St-Sauveur and Mt. Tremblant are the most touristy towns.

The Laurentians have many sights and activities for all the family. You can rock climb eat at a great restaurant, and take a show all on the same day and at very reasonable prices. 90% of the time you can be served in English and if not the people will go to great lengths to communicate with you and fulfill...
