Revision as of 10:35, 15 April 2008
The region takes its name from the chain of mountains which runs down its northern side, and is part of the great Canadian Shield, which covers most of Quebec north of the St. Lawrence River. Covering 22,000 square kilometers, the Laurentians span lakes, forests of maple and pine and, above all, the mountains themselves, making this the top ski getaway on Canada's eastern coast.
Mont-Tremblant's small airport also has some direct flights from the US, mostly in the winter season only.
The Laurentians are only an hour of drive from Montreal on Autoroute 15 North.
