The sector of the Laurentian Heartland is just the right spot for a break away that combines both action and relaxation. The surrounding natural environment invites you to come and enjoy life!
First of all, the Rivière-du-Nord RCM (Regional county municipalities) welcomes visitors on the south side, a bare 40 kilometres from Montréal. There you’ll find golf courses, restaurants, hotels, the Laurentian’s Contemporary Art Museum, the “kilometre zero” marker on “Le P’tit Train du Nord” cycle path, and the Rivière-du-Nord Regional Park with its pretty Wilson waterfalls.
Just minutes further north you arrive in the Pays-d’en-Haut RCM, home to one of Québec’s most famous folk characters, Séraphin, from the novel (and film) Un homme et son péché (Seraphin: Heart of Stone). A delightful area of pleasant holiday cottages, it is the epitome of peace and quiet, a perfect place to be outdoors, and a renowned sector for fine dining and all sorts of cultural discoveries. In and around the Valley of Saint-Sauveur, you’ll also find the largest concentration of ski centres open at night, anywhere in eastern North America.
The Laurentides RCM presents a region of untamed natural beauty that is accessible all year round. With six downhill ski centres, including Tremblant, rated as the “#1 resort in eastern North America” by SKI Magazine, a dozen or more golf courses, hundreds of kilometres of trails, some dedicated to cross-country skiing and cycling, others to snowmobiling, as well as agricultural tourism and other cultural circuits. The Laurentian Heartland is a true holiday area with an incomparable choice of lodging of exceptional quality.
