A vast and welcoming region, a fascinating land, the Laurentians, north of Montréal, is a world renowned four-season tourist destination. Our 22,000 sq. km. territory spans south to north from Rivière des Mille-Iles to the huge territories north of Mont-Laurier and east to west, from the borderline of the Lanaudière region to the boundaries of the Outaouais region. Journeying over plains and valleys, trekking over hills and mountains, you will discover a kaleidoscope of landscapes, bursting with beauty. Mountainside and lakeside cottages, heritage homes, lively towns and villages will delight you!
Shaped by courageous pioneers: Amerindians, French, Irish and Scots, our prolific and colourful Laurentian history has inspired numerous authors including Claude-Henri Grignon and Francine Ouellette. The vast Laurentians experienced remarkable development from the days of the first settlers to the arrival of tourists from around the world. A destination of choice for vacationers, who come back time and again to admire its magnificence. No wonder so many Laurentian aficionados set up a secondary home here. No one is ever short changed: nature, unique attractions, various activities, something to please one and all, season after season!
