Laurentian Mountains Day Trip From Montreal

Laurentian Mountains Day Trip from Montreal

Depart Montreal in the morning for your day trip to the Laurentian Mountains (Les Laurentides), one of Montrealers’ favorite getaway spots.

Your first stop is the village of St-Sauveur, where you’ll be charmed by its cute main street lined with boutiques, cafes and shops. Enjoy one hour of free time here to browse the shops for souvenirs, admire the town’s historical buildings or enjoy a cup of coffee.

After meeting back up with your guide, make your way to the next village, St-Adolphe d’Howard, about 20 minutes away. Stop here briefly for a photo op of Lac Joseph before continuing about 30 minutes down the road to the village of St-Agathe-des-Monts. When you arrive in town, head to the lakeshore to board a boat — the Croisieres Alouette — for your 50-minute cruise on beautiful Lac des Sables, one of the most picturesque lakes in the Laurentians.

Finally, head to the last stop of the day, Mont-Tremblant, about half an hour away. On your way to Mont-Tremblant, your guide will give you a short introduction to the village and adjacent ski resort of the same name, including facts about the resort’s founder, Joseph Ryan, an American who came to the mountain looking for gold.

When you arrive, you’ll have three hours of free time to eat, shop, walk around the village and take advantage of the alpine sightseeing activities, such as riding the gondola up to the top of Mont Tremblant, the highest peak in the Laurentians. Perhaps you want to linger over a long French lunch with good wine, or just grab a sandwich before discovering what's happening in the village that day; events often take place, such as the Tremblant International Blues Festival (all food, drinks, activities and events at your own expense).

Finally, make the two-hour drive back to Montreal, where your day trip ends.

What a wonderful trip. This was a great way to see the mountains and ski resorts around Montreal. Our guide Richard was so helpful and funny. I would recommend this as a must do.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

Great day. Humorous and informative guide who kept us informed on the sights and general knowledge on the area pretty much the whole journey. The lake visit was nice, and the trip to Mont Tremblant amazing. Either take the cable car to the top, or the chairlift, which goes to a lower level, then you can walk the next part. Really beautiful views from the top.

Richard was the perfect tour guide and driver. We are a family of four with teens and everyone enjoyed the trip. He kept us engaged and usually laughing and made plenty of stops for photos, coffee/snacks and bathroom breaks. The boat ride offered opportunities for nice photos too. Mont Trem...
