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.

We drove through the Laurentian Mountains area after visiting Montreal and Quebec and visited several villages along the way. It was a wonderful road trip. I'd love to see it during the fall.

This part of the country has just as amazing colors with the reds and yellows and pinks. It is a beautiful drive at the end of October with the sun striking the trees. We did not hike or walk so I am not able to review that portion.

Mont Tremblant has been highly developed by Intrawest with boutiques, expensive stores etc. However it still retains the flavor of Quebec with friendly people, good restaurants and great skiing. It can be cold in the middle of winter but just bundle up and enjoy the mountain. A little bit of Europe in Quebec!

The Laurentian Mountains are not the highest in the country having been crushed and shaped under the weight of glaciers thousands of years ago but they make for a spectacular region speckled with lakes, streams, mixed and boreal forest and all the flora and fauna that abounds in this varied habitat. Easily accessible from most urban areas in Southern Quebec,Eastern... More

I took a very scenic drive throughout this area on the way to many other site seeing destinations. The views wonderful and the ups and downs or the highways really cool. Decent photos taken out for the car. Steep drop offs. You need some good brakes on your car. Waterfalls and ski hills can be seen on the way.

The Laurentians are a large area of relatively low mountains offering an endless choice of recreational options in all seasons. The region is studded with alpine ski hills and cross country trails for winter activities including dog sledding, sleigh rides, ski-doo safaris, ice fishing blah blah blah! The area has a myriad of lakes and rivers for rafting, sailing, canoeing... More

The Laurentian Mountains are filled with nice little towns and attractions that are a must for a tourist. Mont-Tremblant is a must with it's Natural reserve called Parc du Mont-Tremblant where you can rent a fully equipped tent or little cottage and spend the night in wild life! Be reassured, nothing dangerous, you would be quite lucky to see a... More

I love the Laurentian mountains, once you reach Piedmont, you in the mountains, about 45 minutes from Montreal, beautiful fresh mountain air, little towns you can stop off along the way. Stop in St. Agathe and visit the lake there, then walk around the roadway that circles the lake. Then head up to Mount Tremblant which is a resort that... More

The Laurentians is a succession of villages, that each has a special character. St. Sauveur, Ste Agathe, Mount Tremblant, plus a succession of lakes. Things to do: cycle, snowhoeing on Le petit train du Nord, swim in one of the hundred lakes, stay in a B&B. Enjoy the pace of these small villages and if you like to ski you... More
