One of the most stunning national parks in the province of Québec, Mont Tremblant doesn’t disappoint. With six major rivers, over 400 lakes and roughly 40 different species of mammals, the park is a nature’s lover paradise and make for a picture-perfect postcard of the Québécois boreal forests. Luxurious log cabins, wholesome residents and plenty of outdoor activities understandably make up for a popular getaway from Montreal – at any time of the year, be it a winter wonderland or a vibrantly colored autumn escapade. Hiking, cycling, canoeing, zip-lining, golfing and a host of other outdoor activities are all readily available at Mont Tremblant, not to mention via ferrata, snowmobiling, ice climbing, dog sledding, tubing, alpine and cross-country skiing as well as snowshoeing and ice fishing.
Visitors looking for a more relaxing getaway will also be pleased at Mont Tremblant: deluxe Nordic spas and fine dining abound in the region, which can be complemented with a panoramic gondola tour or a thrilling night out at the newly renovated casino. The National Park’s namesake village is often referred to as the Disneyland of the North by locals, thanks to an impeccable pedestrian center filled with luxury hotels, colorful buildings, locally sourced restaurants and a certain je ne sais quoi that makes it utterly charming.
Mont Tremblant is located in the Laurentians region about two hours north of Montreal (132 kilometers/82 miles) via A15 and road 117. There is a direct bus service from Montreal’s airport to Mont-Tremblant.
