What to do?

For playing outside, the Laurentian region simply has no equal. The waltz of the seasons gives the region its rhythm and outdoors enthusiasts have an absolute embarrassment of riches when it comes to choosing what adventure to do next. In summer, watersports lead the field, with more than 9,000 lakes and rivers to choose from. In fall, a cycling tour or a long or short-distance hike might do the trick, transporting you at the same time into nature’s very heart, in all its fall glory. In winter, some exploring might be nice, this time on snowshoes or cross-country skis, giving us a chance to recall what it was like for the early pioneers as they made their way carefully through snowclad virgin forests. In spring, it’s time for all things to thaw and that also means some heady experiences for those who enjoy whitewater rafting expeditions, or perhaps the excitement of a day’s fishing. The Laurentians region is the outdoors destination « par excellence ».

 

 

The “Chemin du Terroir” is a signposted trail that takes you through more than 226 kilometres of country backroads and byways, with discoveries to make at every turn.

Laurentians parks

Among the many activities available, you can tour along “Le P’tit Train du Nord” linear park, a 232-km cycle path built over an old railway line from Bois-des-Filion to Mont- Laurier: it’s the longest park of its kind in Canada!

The “Route des Belles Histoires” allows visitors to discover the Laurentian region from another aspect.

The Laurentians region is renowned for its vast forests, beautiful mountain scenery and festive villages. One of the largest concentration of ski area in Eastern Canada with 12 ski resorts, there are plenty of affordable, all-inclusive packages to choose from that may include meals, lessons and unlimited skiing.
