Many Montreal residents hold a second home in a radius of 1-2 hours drive around the city. In fact, Montreal is unique in that one does not need to travel far from this bustling metropolis to find wilderness and the fun of all-year-round outdoor activities like hiking, canoeing, snowmobiling, cycling, alpine skiing and cross-country skiing.

The countryside around Montreal is abundant and alters in nature from one area to the other. Starting with the largely
wilderness stretch of the Outaouais to the west of Montreal, continuing with the lush farmland of the Eastern Townships located south-east towards the US border; and finishing to the north with the Laurentians - one of the world’s oldest mountain ranges, where five hundred million years of erosion have moulded it into a rippling landscape of undulating hills and valleys.
