Mont Tremblant National Park

The Laurentian and the Lanaudiere regions are home to Quebec’s largest protected area known as National Park of Mont-Tremblant. With its 1,510 km² (604 mi²) of territory and more than 160 km (100 mi) of hiking trails, the Park of Mont-Tremblant is the largest park in Quebec. It is also the first national park created in Quebec.

Nestled at the base of the 968-metre (3,176-ft) mountain, the park offers a wide array of outdoor sports to choose from: hiking, canoeing, camping, fishing, cross-country skiing, cycling, snow-shoeing, and much more. Besides, the National Park of Mont-Tremblant provides a rich mixture of Quebec’s patrimonial and natural heritage.

Four hundred lakes and six rivers dotted with waterfalls, cascades, and a multitude of streams make part a magnificent nature realm.

The huge park is divided into three major sectors:

  • Le Diable Sector is accessible from the municipality of Lac-Superieur. Its many beautiful mountain peaks, lakes, and the Diable River are perfect for canoeing and kayaking.
  • La Pimbina Sector, a historic area of the Lanaudiere region, is accessible from the municipality of Saint-Donat. You are invited to marvel at the view of the mountains, untouched lakes, the incredible Chute-aux-Rats Waterfall, and the Carcan peak.
  • L’Assomption Sector is accessible from the municipality of Saint-Come. This sector offers a limpid river for paddling, fish-filled lakes for angling, and the silence of a night when camping or staying at a lakefront cabin.

Whether tourists are looking for the comfort of a vacation cabin or the charm of rustic camping, the adventure of long hikes or a stay in a hut, the park guarantees an authentic experience in the heart of nature. In fact, Mont-Tremblant repeatedly tops the list of eastern North America best resorts.

The park, a vast universe of lakes and rivers set against a mountain backdrop, offers freedom and a chance to get away from the civilization. Displaying nature at its best, the National park of Mont-Tremblant is open year round.
