6 Activities in Mont Tremblant You Have to Do

Squeezing all these activities into one weekend may require some diligent planning. However, you don’t have to do them all in one trip and may want to space them out over the course of a season.

A trip to Mont Tremblant should be just as relaxing as it is filled with fun activities.

1. Canoe Mont Tremblant

There’s nothing more Canadian in the summer than canoeing, so if your trip’s purpose is to see the real Canada, hop in a canoe and head down river. The Rouge River is heaven on earth for canoers and provides endless views of some of the country’s most beautiful scenery. Pack a lunch and have a picnic anywhere along the 12 km shoreline. Or visit Lac Tremblant for a more relaxing paddle and simply soak up the beauty of the environment.

2. Ice Skating Mont Tremblant

The winter months are perfect to get the family together and hit the local skating rinks; there are a few to choose from. The Pedestrian Village Rink is my favourite and is located next to Saint Bernard Chapel at the base of the Pedestrian Village. Skate rentals are complimentary for resort guests but can also be rented. If you have your own skates, check out these other skating options as well;

  • Parc Daniel Lauzon (offers hockey as well)
  • Lac Mercier (best for families)
