A few kilometres from Montréal, right in the middle of the St. Lawrence, 5 little islands form Parc national des Îles-de-Boucherville. This park offers green spaces, channels teeming with life and waterside trails. Walkers, cyclists and canoers come here for a breath of fresh air and a break from city noise. Others enjoy a trip back in time to discover some of the First Nations that spent time on the park's islands. In the winter, Île Sainte-Marguerite offers skiers and snowshoers a paradise of snowy landscapes. The peaceful atmosphere is conducive to spotting animals and signs of their presence.

Great Park. Close to Montreal. Close to the south shore. It is important that you get a map of the island as you will get to discover how massive and beautiful it is. - Get your self a good bottle of water. If you are doing the 3 islands walking, you will need some food and water. - Don't underestimate the size of the island. - The island is perfect for biking, but walking is perfect. -There are a lot of activities all of which are free for kids. - There is a camp site definitely worth it. - Staff is friendly and helpful. - There are a lot of deer and birds. If you like to talk photos prepare yourself.

A beautiful place, close to nature although very close to the city of Montreal. Offers several fun activities like kayaking, canoeing, golf, fishing, Safari and biking, among others. We took the 4-hr canoe ride. It's a beautiful and wild experience canoeing in the river, compared to in a lake.

Okay before you freak out, let me explain. This place is for fitness freaks. If you love cycling or walking or kayaking (experienced) then this is a heaven. Or if you are a big group, pack some food, plan some games then you can enjoy it well. I am neither so 3 stars.

Discover the Montérégie

Mont Rougemont is part of the Montérégie region in southwestern Quebec. This region is located halfway between the two cities of Ottawa and Quebec City, and stretches from the St. Lawrence River to the border with the United States Ḕtats.

From a tourism point of view, the Montérégie is very varied, alternating between rural and urban landscapes. It is not by chance that tourists in this region have a wide range of things to do.

In the Montérégie, one can dedicate oneself to different activities, first of all to agrotourism. With its production of apples, cider and sugar shacks, the region is one of the favorite destinations for gourmet tourists from all over the world, who are eager to try the flavors of the territory.

Not to mention sports: in Montérégie you can enjoy the outdoors all year round, hiking, biking, boating, cross-country skiing... Or again: here nature lovers can discover incredible landscapes by visiting the two national parks of the region and the Parc Safari de Saint-Bernard-de-Lacolle.

The Montérégie region is also active from a cultural point of view: numerous historical sites, museums and galleries offer the possibility to travel back in time, discovering archaeological remains from our past or contemporary artworks.

In conclusion, we cannot fail to mention the shows that take place in the different theaters of the region. The first of them is the Juliette-Lassonde Arts Centre in Saint-Hyacinte, which stages the most beautiful theatrical productions of dance, music, circus and cabaret every year.
