Outside of Toronto - Quebec - Sainte-Adele
Sainte-Adele is one of the small quaint villages nestled in the Laurentian Mountains just to the north of Montreal. This beautiful region offers a wide variety of activities including the famous ski hills of Mount Tremblant. This area is also famous for the "P'tit Train du Nord". The famous rails-to-trails idea was hatched when the rail services were no longer required.

The P'tit Train du Nord brings outdoor lovers north into this area for bicycling and cross country skiing in breathtaking scenery that runs from Mount-Laurier to Sainte-Jerome with 200 km of groomed civilized trails. This region also offers lots of options for those with an appreciation for fine food. One can take the advantage of the province's thriving agro-tourism industry for its gourmet cuisine and many wellness spas.
