Summer might be ending, but that’s never a reason to be sad in the Laurentians! Fall colours are back, as spectacular as ever. With the Laurentian landscape turning into a vast multi-coloured tableau, it’s time once again to enjoy blazing fall scenery in the cooler mountain air.Continue Reading

Here are our suggestions:Continue Reading
When Tourisme Laurentides asked me to stay at an outfitter in the Laurentians, I didn’t have to think twice. I have visited outfitters throughout Quebec for my TV show, Expédition Faune on TVA Sports, for nearly twenty years now. As part of this project, I was to stay at one of the many outfitters in the Laurentian region.
It’s decided: this summer, we’ll spend our family vacation at Mont-Tremblant! This time, we’ll rent a chalet in the mountains at Tremblant Resort. It’s a great way to be in the heart of events, close to sports activities and walking distance from 75 restaurants and shops in the pedestrian village.
While the children are already celebrating the return of the Bestibuzz, an entertaining troop of creatures brimming with good cheer and talent, they are really excited about taking part in the new Mission Liberté adventure games. Our daughter is also looking forward to coming home with a personalized shirt that she’s planning to create in a do-it-yourself boutique. As for our son, he’s yearning for an adrenaline-packed adventure trying out the ziplines at Ziptrek Ecotours. He’s been talking about it for ages!
We already knew that Tremblant is a choice summer destination for the entire family. From the Aquaclub to the Golf Academy; from the theme parks’ and Casino’s play areas; from intimate afternoon blues performances to electrifying evening shows in the bars—there is something for everyone.
Even so, we are delighted to note that there are continually new offerings to enhance our experience, including activities, events, boutiques, and restaurants. I’m thinking about the Grill & Country gourmet and music event; shows by The Franklin Electric group and Ariane Moffat; and the interactive component for children incorporated into Les Rythmes Tremblant. Not to mention new boutiques such as Atelier Mont-T’s, La Raffinerie, Parfum d’Argent, and MaïO, as well as the Laurent Louis and St-Hubert Express restaurants, as well as a Starbucks coffee shop.
The only thing left for us to decide is when we’ll be taking our dream family vacation. Maybe we’ll go at the same time as our friends from Toronto, who’ll be taking advantage of the direct flights offered by Porter. But whichever dates we choose, it always feels like the right place and time to go to Tremblant!
