Laurentian Mountains (Les Laurentides)

Éoliens Seigneurie de Beaupré Lac-Jacques-Cartier, Quebec, Canada, G0A

The Basics

The Laurentian Mountains are the setting for a wide range of seasonal outdoor activities. In winter, spend the day skiing the slopes of Mont-Tremblant or soaking in a hot tub at a relaxing spa. In summer, try high-thrill activities, such as ziplining, rock climbing, cliff rappelling, and white-water rafting. Tours from Montreal offer the chance to swap the city for the countryside for the day, stopping at rural towns and villages in the region. Some day tours also incorporate lake cruises.

The boat cruise was great to go. Shops and restaurants at Mount Trumblant were almost closed due to low season. Thus, not much to see.

Laurentian Mountains Day Trip From Montreal
This trip was lovely. The guide Norman was very knowledgeable. We stopped at 3 places. I didn't feel rushed at any of the places. I even went to the top of Mont Tremblant and was still able to eat/see the town. Norman was so nice and would tell when photo moments were coming while on the bus when we couldn't get off the bus due to being on the road.

Laurentian Mountains Day Trip From Montreal
Very beautiful scenery. Wish we would of had a list of places stopping since we were having a hard time understanding everything. Even if the tour director was doing English and French. Also driver needs to make sure on drop off that they have the correct hotel since there were two in the area that were Best Western but 30 minutes walking between the two. We were dropped off and it was only suppose to be one block to our hotel. We had figure out where we were and figure out the direction we need to walk which was difficult since we were not that familiar with Montreal. We made it after asking a couple of security people

Laurentian Mountains Day Trip From Montreal
Spectalular scenery. The autumn foilage was stunning. The tour guide was very informative and translated short sentences both in English and French. On the whole the tour was well worth the money. The river cruise was good. Even though the chairs were plastic for the 50 minutes the cruise lasted they were quite acceptable. I would have liked half hour more in Mont Treblant as by the time you walked down the path back to the bus we didnt eat in at any of the restaurants because of the queques. The last village we called at, again I would have liked at least 15 minutes more because once again I was concerned about the time as opposed to the vis n vis to order coffee at their renowned popular shop.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • The Laurentian Mountains are a must for scenery seekers and active travelers.

  • Bring sunscreen and a sun hat in summer. In winter, the Laurentians are cold and snowy, so wrap up warm.

  • Many shops, hotels, and restaurants in the Mont-Tremblant area of the Laurentians are wheelchair accessible. Most hiking trails, however, are not.

When to Get There

December through March is the best time for skiing and snowboarding. June through August is best for hiking. In late September and early October, the mountains are popular among leaf peepers. March is typically the best time to visit the Laurentians’ sugar shacks, which serve up maple-soaked feasts during the annual syrup harvest.

P'tit Train du Nord

Running for 125 miles (200 kilometers) along a disused railway track, this bike path cuts through some of the Laurentians’ most scenic landscapes. Despite the mountainous terrain, the path itself is relatively flat, making it accessible to cyclists of all fitness levels. The trail begins in Saint-Jérôme, just north of Montreal. It can be completed in one day, but for most cyclists, it’s more enjoyable to break up the journey with stops and do the full route over two or even three days.
