The gateway to the Laurentian Mountains, Saint-Jerome makes a perfect base for exploring Quebec’s great outdoors. Fuel up at the town’s restaurants before exploring dozens of outdoor activities like rafting, cross-country skiing, swimming, and rock climbing. You could get around by car, but the best way to take in the area’s beauty is on your own steam along the extensive, nearly 150-mile cycling network.

Parc Linéaire Le P'tit Train du Nord

Raft challenging white-water rapids on the Rivière-Rouge or cycle (or cross-country ski in the winter) along part of the 143-mile Parc Lineaire Le P’tit Train du Nord rail path.

Parc National du Mont-Tremblant

Quebec’s largest national park is perfect for swimming and the new rock climbing–like “via ferrata” (ropes, ladder rungs, footholds).

Café de la Gare

Stop for a latte and ham and cheese omelette at this café in a converted train station on the rail path.

Chez Milot Restaurant de Boisbriand

Gobble gooey Canadian cheese fondue here.

Motel la Cheminée

Several of the tastefully decorated modern rooms include whirlpool tubs, perfect after a long day of outdoor activity.
