Tremblant is as perfect a resort destination in summer as it is in winter. From the mountain down to the lake, from its bike path network to its spectacular golf links and deep into its pedestrian village with its signature European look, where practically everything is just a short walk away, countless moments can be experienced in nature where activities are as unique to live as they are to capture.
1. On the Tarmac, at an Airport with a Country Cachet
One of a kind, Mont-Tremblant International Airport’s terminal is based on a classic Canadian log cabin. Year-round it welcomes passengers on flights with Porter Airlines, originating in or transiting through Toronto from June to September. The terminal is so special that your holiday clearly begins here.
2. On the Chapel Grounds, alongside Grazing Deer
As you arrive at the resort, you might well be greeted by a herd of deer – local mascots that thrive here in the area. The chapel grounds are a prime spot for this type of meet-up but also for meditating, reading or even a quick snooze before resuming your day.
Deers are apparently getting pretty comfortable with us humans. This dear responded to “Bambi” and gave me a side angle shot after willing to be featured in a selfie … Actually. Ok, maybe not but the dear DID eat an apple out of someone’s hand. Unreal. Domestication of nature. It’s definitely not just humans who are evolving fast.

3. Sipping Coffee, on your Guestroom Balcony
Whether overlooking the lake, village, golf course or mountain, accommodations all offer unique views on nature, the colorful European-style rooftops or the village’s warm ambiance and lively effervescence. In total, 1,900 lodging units are fanned out across 13 establishments, including the reputed Fairmont, Marriott, Westin, Holiday Inn and Hilton brands.
4. In the Fast Lane, on One of Five Ziptrek Ecotours Ziplines
A 4 km long aerial adventure soars over the treetops from summit to base, revealing the Laurentians from a singular viewpoint. Dotted with high-perched belvederes, the experience includes guided trail hikes and interesting photo ops showcasing Tremblant’s luxuriant environment.

Thousands of triathletes from over thirty countries also strike a pose here, forever capturing the moment of their achievement. Year after year from May to September, this world-class event offers all calibres of swimmers, cyclists and runners the ideal training destination for their discipline.
6. Teeing Off on the 18th Hole of Le Géant Golf Course, with the Lake as a Backdrop
Tremblant’s Le Géant and Le Diable rank among Canada’s finest golf courses, magnificently showcased as they are by the talents of renowned master architects: Mountainside tees, rolling fairways, amber-coloured sandtraps, impeccable greens. Sites of great beauty presenting a challenge for budding and expert golfers alike.

7. Bobbing Merrily Atop the Waves, on Lac Tremblant
Rentals include canoes, kayaks, paddleboards, catamarans, pontoon boats and any one of a number of motorized craft that make exploring Lac Tremblant’s 12 km possible. Cruises or supervised swim and inflatable waterplay areas also offer angles as interesting visually as they are fun.
8. With a Bluesman Met Happenchance, on Rue des Remparts
A stroll in the pedestrian village is all it takes to bump into a famous artist out enjoying the site, its paved pathways and colourful rooftops. Especially during the 10-day Tremblant International Blues Festival that sets the stage for over one hundred outdoor shows which for the most part, are free.

Discover the amazing talents of soaring birds of prey and be among the privileged few who have one land on their arm. Guaranteed excitement!

11. At the Sugar Shack, as Hot Maple Taffy is Spread across Fresh Snow
Rain or shine, winter or summer, anyone with a sweet tooth is welcome to taste maple taffy and other Sugar Shack products. Tremblant’s cornucopia of Québec specialty foods is well worth the detour ? like Chez Smoke’s poutine. And then again, there’s always La Diable’s microbrewery beers.
