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.

I did the Grey Line tour and we went through some pretty towns with interesting buildings and houses. We had a boat ride on the main lake which was nothing exciting. Spent time at Mont Tremblant which is a tourist town. The cable car to the top is expensive and the views at the top aren't earth shattering and unless... More

The day trip is about eight hours with views of the countryside and small villages like Saint Saveur. Skiing season was over, and the Fall color change would not be for several months, but the view from Mont Tremblant was still spectacular. The shopping and restaurant area was trendy and made to look European, but was basically a dressed up... More

The condos are great for family rentals and the ski village is alive with music in the summertime, an added bonus. We hit a big Blues festival the weekend we were there. There is a plethora of really good outdoor restaurants and bars at every price and quality level which means you have to put up with late night parties... More

I can't really explain it but I love getting a chalet there in the winter, I have been there few times in the summer but winters there are my favorite. The snow is untouched and it just look beautiful.

St Adele, with its cross on top of the Mountain is the Center of this region which starts around St Sauveur (la porte du Nord) and runs up to Mont Tremblant. Night skiing during the week is great around Avila. The nightlife though isn't what it used to be. Piano Bars have disappeared. Skiing has become very pricy. Can we... More

It's at least an hour (two, if the traffic is bad at the weekend) to get there, but it's worth it. There is always something to do, 12 months of the year. Good restaurants; great skiing in the winter; amazing colours in the fall; good fishing and hiking and canoeing in the summer.

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.

Always enjoy going to Laurentian Mountains whether its Winter or Summer. Mont Tremblant great for skiing and also good for hikes but also the surrounding area has so much to other and its just 45 minutes by car from Montreal

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!!
