Feast and play outdoors in Montérégie
The Montérégie region is a foodie’s paradise just south-east of Montréal, home to orchards, vineyards and maple groves. The kids will love climbing up apple trees to pick the ripe fruit, while in winter, it doesn’t get more Québec than a giant feast in an authentic sugar shack! To burn some of those calories off, the area is wonderful for bike treks, hiking and boating expeditions. Explore Lake Champlain or Rivière Richelieu by kayak, or get wilder with an outing up-close-and-personal with wild animals at Parc Safari. For something a little more civilized, sip your way along the cider or wine routes.
