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.

December to March for winter sports and in March and April cabanes à sucre (sugar shacks) seem to pop up everywhere for the maple harvest, or sugar season; late June through August for summer activities and late September for fall foliage.

We travel every fall to places with beautiful colours and if you are a person who loves to see colour's, definitely you wouldn't be disappointed🍁🍁🍁 It's real feast for your eyes and great place to take pictures!!! Each season the mountains are beautiful in it's own way but I love fall for colours.

Nice one hour drive north of Montreal to be in the country, only one hour away, and smell the fresh air, the birds are chirping, the restaurants are full of tourists, drinking beer, eating, lots to do, bicycling, boating, walking, hiking, enjoy the warm weather, because the winter is so long!!

Visited Mont Tremblant on a day when the sun had just started coming out, and there was a local festival on the ski slopes. Beautiful view, lovely atmosphere. Totally refreshing!

I am a bit biased since I live in the Laurentians, however even if I didn't I highly recommend it - all year round. Lots to do, see, shop, eat and of course many nature paths, cycling, hiking and skiing both downhill and x-country. Wonderful for couples, families or solo.

This area is as nice as any you will see. I love the drive into the Laurentians. I know everyone talks about downtown Montreal but I love driving here and staying in a B & B.

The Laurentians may not be as lofty as the Rockies, but they are very beautiful and only an hour's drive from Montreal. They're a mecca for skiers in the winter, with several top-class ski resorts, chief among them Mont-Tremblant and its quaint tourist village (shops, eating places, top-notch hotels, condos to rent, a funiculaire to the top of the mountain,...

Take the autoroute 15 north out of Montreal and about 55 km minutes outside the City you will begin to enter the mountains and their forests of deciduous and conifer trees. Late September the weather turns cold enough to start the leave changing colours. You wont believe the variety of yellow/red/oranges/greys that will be displayed to you as far as... More
