Labelle and Mont-Tremblant, Quebec: Canoeing and Hiking amid the Laurentian Mountains
The Village de Labelle is about 33 km from Mont-Tremblant, but each have a similar appeal—they're charming towns set amid national parks and rivers in the Laurentian Mountains.
Mont-Tremblant is made up of three regions: the old village, the pedestrian village, and Saint-Jovite. Each has its own character. The quiet old village overlooks Lac Mercier with boutiques and bistro-style restaurants. Contrast that with the pedestrian village—or "the resort," as locals call it—which buzzes with activity from its panoramic gondola-lift to its lively bars. Outdoor pursuits go on year-round here and include skiing, whitewater rafting, and zip-lining.
Mont-Tremblant National Park has some 400 lakes and six rivers; it’s worth hopping on a kayak or canoe for a group tour of the scenic Red River. To experience the region’s natural beauty without leaving dry land, take a ride in a horse-drawn cabriolet through Labelle, Mont-Tremblant, or another quaint mountainside village.
Saint-Jovite, located about 6 miles south of Mont-Tremblant's old village, used to be its own municipality before merging with the rest of Mont-Tremblant. The area still looks and feels like a small town, with most of the action centered around a main street dotted with antique shops, ice-cream parlors, and pubs with sprawling outdoor terraces.
