The Laurentians are part of a shield of peaks that are forested. Enclosed by the Ottawa, St. Lawrence and Seguenay rivers, the Laurentians are best known for their stunning ski slops which roll into sign, one hour north of Monteal.

First Nations relics indicate that the area was occupied by American-Indian settlements over 4,000 and since the early century, the region is known for being a rich agricultural zone that is famous for the hunting, trapping and fishing that it allows for in its 6000 lakes and ponds.

First-time visitors to the Laurentians can enjoy the omnipresent Francophone villages as well as sample the modern ski resorts in the winter.
