The Algonquin people originally called the mountain towering above this small city the “trembling mountain” and, translated into French, this is what it is still called today.
89% of the residents here speak French as their first language.
Winter is when this village truly comes alive, with world-class ski runs at the nearby resort, but Mont-Tremblant is a true year-round destination. Located about 130 km northwest of Montreal, Mont Tremblant and its surrounding areas are a haven for hiking, cycling, canoeing, fishing, golfing, ziplines, summer gondola and other activities too numerous to mention.
The pedestrian-friendly village has a distinctly European feel, its buildings exuding the charm of yesteryear. Quaint shops and cosy restaurants invite you in and there’s nothing more refreshing at the end of the day than catching the sun’s last rays on an outdoor terrace, sampling the local wine.
The area surrounding Mont Tremblant village is a haven for outdoor activities in both winter and summer. Visitors travelling in motorhomes or campers can choose from a number of great private campgrounds and in nearby Mont-Tremblant National Park, campsites are available in various sectors. These campgrounds are an ideal base for exploring the Park.
