With enchanting landscapes and numerous activities for all tastes, winter in the Laurentians is magical. And to truly appreciate the season, nothing compares to “Le P’tit Train du Nord” linear park, a 232-km path built over an old railway line from Bois-des-Filion to Mont-Laurier. It is the longest park of its kind in Canada, with activities season after season.
When the distinctive colors of autumn have given way to the pure beauty of winter, cyclists are replaced by skiers and snowmobilers. Enjoy a great outing on your cross-country skis from Saint-Jérôme to Val-David or in the Mont-Tremblant area. The trail is groomed for snowmobiling between Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts and Saint-Faustin-Lac-Carré, then from Labelle to Mont-Laurier.
While roaming about, you will have an opportunity to discover a great variety of local delicacies, many activities, wide-open spaces, endless forestscapes, gorgeous snowy mountains and breathtaking sceneries. You will also find an abundance of restaurants, art galleries and charming boutiques in the nearby villages.
Visit the linear park’s Website to find out about a vast selection of lodging facilities and activities adjacent to the cycle path, and make your stay even more enjoyable. With the help of the interactive map, you’ll find everything you need in each sector of the park.
Put on a pair of cross-country skis or get your snowmobile ready and explore the region and its enchanting bucolic scenery this winter!
