Miles and miles of mountainous land covered by trees and lakes. September is perfect. There is a Festival des couleurs (Festival of colors) each year.

I am biased having grown up here but I have been wanting to move back ever since I left. I visit at lest 4 times a year. For someone with not too much time on their hands it says something that I choose to spend time coming here. If you love nature, you will love it here!

If you love the nature and want to practice veto, alpine ski, crosscountry ski, swimming, golfing etc., don't miss the Laurentian Mountains, especially St-Sauveur and Mont Tremblant

Picture perfect villages, one after the other. We stopped in Saint-Sauveur-des-Monts, drove around to the ski hills, shops, amazing restaurants each small and quaint and handmade dishes. This stop is worth it, simply makes you smile and aawh!

Exploring Southern Quebec is probably one of my best summer holidays to date! My friends and I cycle toured trough this amazing province filled with beautiful scenery, warm and hospitable people on an amazing route called Le Vert Route = The Green Route. The route was very cycle friendly, well signed and beautiful. I highly recommend it to everyone.

We've heard skiing Mont Tremblant is not for the faint of heart - freezing cold and icy conditions. Coming here in summer (and fall too) is the answer! We were concerned about driving here from Montreal, as we were visiting and didn't know the roads, and experience has taught us getting in and out of cities can be challenging. A... More

Since we are traveling with a two year old, we were somewhat hesitant about taking this trip. When you consider the patience level of a small child, its easy to understand why a 10 hour trip might cause regret. Those fears quickly disappeared when we realized that there are stops before you get to the mountains. We were picked up... More

Greetings, fellow TripAdvisor members and travelers! I'm excited to be visiting Mont-Tremblant for the first time as part of an upcoming day trip from Montreal to les Laurentides -- which itself will be part of a week-long return trip to Montreal and Quebec City. My questions about Mont-Tremblant pertain to the gondolas. It's a little embarrassing to admit at my age that I've never taken a cable car ride ever, anywhere! I'm not sure if the Gray Line tour allows for three hours or 90 minutes of free time in the Pedestrian Village at Mont-Tremblant, but if it *is* three hours, I plan on experiencing a gondola ride. Between my dreams and the scenes in movies of many kinds (although none of them in Mont-Tremblant but in the French, Swiss and Italian alps), I have been wishing for a long time to ride in a cable car without having to ski. QUESTION #1: How much does it cost (please state if CAD or US) for a gondola ride round-trip ticket? I won't have a ski pass (I know ... duh, right? It's July), but I don't mind paying more just to have such a thrilling experience! QUESTION #2: Because it's peak tourism season, might there be a very long queue just to purchase a gondola ticket? QUESTION #3: Even for those with tickets, is there a secondary line to board the gondolas? QUESTION #4: While you're up high and taking in the breathtaking views, are you strapped in a seatbelt or other type of harness? I always wondered that about cable cars. QUESTION #5: Would I have to ride alone? I'll be with a group tour (for the day trip only), but because it's our free time, I might be wandering around the Pedestrian Village alone. Still, I'm wondering if the person who helps me board the gondola will have others join me in the cable car. QUESTION #6: Is there any danger of altitude sickness? I'll be taking my rescue inhaler with me everywhere I go on the entire trip -- I'm a non-smoker and have only mild asthma that doesn't require maintenance medicine anymore. The highest I've ever ventured (by car or coach, never via hiking) in the mountainous areas of Quebec province, is Mont-Royal (OK, true, that's only a hill, geologically speaking) and a town that a friend's relative once owned in les Laurentides, but that cottage was not located as far north as Mont-Tremblant. ... I do have one question *not* related to the Mont-Tremblant gondolas: Which restaurants and/or cafes would you all recommend I try while in Mont-Tremblant? Thanks to all of you, tremendously, for taking the time to read my questions, let alone taking the time to answer them. One day I hope to return to Mont-Tremblant for a weekend stay in one of those condos, but for now all I'll have time to do is eat there and (again, if the "free time" amounts to three hours and not 90 min.) ride in a gondola. After those two activities, the only souvenir I'll be able to afford is a snowglobe.
