Its a short drive from Montreal to get started on a Laurentian visit, only about 60 miles...100 km's, But once in the region there is so much to see and do, from resorts like Tremblant to quiet lakeside places.

We visited the "lower" Laurentians including d'Oka National Park. It's a picturesque farming area with lovely apple orchards, great biking trails, some shops, and restaurants. On our next trip we'll definitely visit the Mont Trembant area with its amazing vistas.

While scouring the net in search of places worth visiting during the 8 day Eastern leg of our Trans Canada Road Odyssey, I was jolted upright by the reports I read about the Laurentian Mountains, not very far from Montreal. Though most people in Toronto had not heard of this marvel of nature so close to the metropolis, I decided... More

4 hours only spent in that giant park but it offers so much opportunities with kayak, walking, camping. I wish I could go back at the fall period. It must be fantastic. A lot of bugs in summer, get the correct equipment. We were able to swim in a river near Monroe Lake. 40 minutes from the ski resort Mont... More

After the long drive the teenagers were complaining but once we got there and were overlooking the views, we couldn't even get them back in the car. A must see.

Nice roads to get there and the scenery is at times breathtaking.Whether to play a round of golf with spectacular views of the mountains,or a walk in the woods ,you will have trouble finding a better setting.It is reasonably close to Montreal,about an hour to 2hour drive and bingo your back amongst the pioneers.Also ,very safe for tourists with very...
