Explore the natural wonders of the Laurentians, one of the world's oldest mountain ranges, and enjoy free time to stroll about some of its most scenic resort areas.
Depart from the pier and drive north towards the majestic Laurentians, an ancient mountain range blanketed with dense forests and punctuated by immense valley lakes. Lying in perfect harmony with the scenery are numerous picturesque mountain villages such as Saint-Sauveur, where you will have approximately thirty-minutes of free time to explore its shops and wander about as you please.
Then, venturing even deeper into the mountains, you will be welcomed at the Grand Lodge Resort overlooking deep-blue Lake Ouimet. Constructed in the 1990s with massive, locally timbered logs in an elegant but rustic style, the resort provides a dramatic setting for lunch.
You will see another side of the Laurentians at the Mount Tremblant Resort, a four-season destination near the peak of Mount Tremblant, which is one of the highest points in the mountain range. Here, you will enjoy approximately ninety-minutes of free time to explore the resort's pedestrian village at your leisure.
You might shop in the dozens of boutiques and art galleries, savor a decadent dessert at one of the restaurants, or linger over a handcrafted beer from the microbrewery. Feel free to simply relax; the mountain views are extraordinary. Afterwards, you will drive back to Montreal, taking in the gorgeous scenery along the way.
