The last time I visited Mont Tremblant was in the winter and it was freezing cold and windy. I was not rushing back until we decided to visit this summer.
Our last family vacation was before Covid so we were looking forward to a change of scenery. We experienced the beautiful landscape of Quebec while enjoying some fun family activities.
5 Summer Outdoor Activities to Do in Mont Tremblant
1. Kayaking Along the Rouge River
One of my favourite activities was renting kayaks and paddling 12 km down the Rouge River. We rented the kayaks from Plaus Plein Air. The rental place is near La Conception, Quebec. They drove us to our starting point and we paddled down river with other kayaks, canoes and paddle boarders. One of the coolest parts of the river is how you can pull your kayak up onto a sandy bank and take a break. We saw people having a picnic while others swam in the river. You have to be careful as the current is quite strong in certain areas.
2. Hiking in St. Bernard Regional Park
There are endless trails to hike in the Mont Tremblant area. After doing some reading on All Trails, we decided to visit St. Bernard National Park. It's located very close to the small town of St. Jovite. We walked along Lac Raynaud while my boys had fun on the circuit training course. We hiked up Mont Ouimet where I was able to take this photo of Lake Mont Tremblant. The hike is at an intermediate level.
3. White water Rafting on the Rouge River
I had never done white water rafting before so I was a little nervous. We booked it through New World Rafting. It's located very close to Montebello, Quebec. We did the afternoon half day trip and rafted with another family. Some of the rapids were more gentle but we did hit a few stronger ones, including one called the washing machine. My two boys went flying but luckily never fell out of the raft. There are also full day trips and ones for families with younger children.
4. Cart driving at Jim RusselL Academy
I would have to say that this was one of the favourite activities for my kids. Why? Because they got to drive a cart up to 90km/hr on a track and race against each other at Jim Russell Academy. I did it too but after a couple of runs my upper shoulders were tired. You have to hold on tight! You must be 15 years or older to participate.
5. Zipline at the Top of Mont tremblant
I wish I had photos of this experience. We booked through Ziptrek Ecotours and chose the 1 zip line course. We decided to do an entry course as I am scared of open heights. We were taken to the top of the mountain and then climbed to a launching deck. It was freezing cold and windy that day. I was nervous when I had to step out in the open area before taking off but it was so foggy I couldn't see what was under me. I flew along the line and it was one of the most fun experiences I had. Next time we go, I want to do the 5 courses which takes you down the whole mountain of Mont Tremblant.
I hope you enjoyed reading about Mont Tremblant. My last photo I want to share is a mold I made. I collected a wild clematis near the house we were staying in. I wonder what I should make with it!
