Hotel at a Glance: Fairmont Tremblant
Mont Tremblant creates a scenic backdrop for the four-star Fairmont Tremblant hotel, which is close enough to the mountain and nearby lake for guests to hike and fish in the warmer months and zoom down the slopes during ski season. From the moment you arrive, you’ll be treated to the resort’s hospitality: a valet greets you and whisks your car to its spot—a service that’s complimentary with this getaway.

Mont-Tremblant, Quebec: Alpine Adventure and Scenic Villages in the Laurentian Mountains
Tucked between Montreal and Québec City, Mont-Tremblant is a mountainside city 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.
Saint-Jovite, located about 6 miles south of the 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.
