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 stopped in at least 3-4 small towns, charming shops, great little restaurants, lovely parks. Definitely a day well spent on our vacation to Montreal!

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

I love this area of the Quebec. It is beautiful and full of natural wonders. In the fall the colours are gorgeous. In the winter the region becomes a winter wonderland that you can only dream of. The summer opens to hundreds of lakes and hours spent wandering the nature paths that wind through many of the towns. Spring is... More

The village has many stores, housed like a European town, most inviting and with the cobblestone steps, one feels like you are in Europe. The shop keepers are friendly and the air is cool and crisp.

The Laurentians Mountains is a very seasonal destination for distance visitors or a weekend destination for the local residences. The area with its rolling hills and lakes provided a very good vacation spot. However we visited on a weekday toward the end of October when the summer vacation, the destination was rather empty. We love nature and enjoy the surrounding... More
