Green spaces alive with music 
Come breathe the fresh air right at Montréal's doorstep-in the Lanaudière region! Adventures abound in this rural area along the St. Lawrence River (in the southern region), on its country roads, and in its wilderness (further to the north). Almost everywhere, you can find trails for hikers, cyclists, skiers, in-line skaters, ATV enthusiasts and snowmobilers. Nestled in the rural countryside, the towns vibrate to the rhythm of cultural and sporting events, including the Festival international de Lanaudière, the most prestigious classical music festival in Canada. Gourmets and gourmands can indulge in the regional specialties of the Lanaudière, one of the oldest agricultural regions in Québec.
