After we had explored the Mountain Sector, done luging, eaten some snacks and taken tea, and gathered all information about various activities, we boarded the Gondolas to reach the mountain top. We took 3 activity packs costing $ 22.00 each. The activities included Gondola ride both ways, bird show on the mountain top and luge for Ifrah, Rayyan and their father.
The Gondola ride itself is fun. It offers magnificient views of the mountain slopes, various activities going on, the buildings at the base and lake Tremblant in the distant background (see pictures).
The ride is surprisingly long. However, lot of people take one way ticket and hike to the mountain top. My most cherished memory is of a mother with two children hiking towards the mountain top (picture # 3). I really admired the courage of the trio.

At the base of the mountain, Rayyan went for the Luge with his father and both came back so excited that they decided to do it again on different days.
The luge has only two controls - (1) the steering rod like a bike and (2) the brake that too is controlled by pulling the steering rod towards you.
The luge travel downwards in a meandering manner and can gather high speeds. The drivers have to be very careful. Protective gear is a must.
Because I was taking pictures, I got to observe the most. I noticed drivers of all ages. Those going for the first time came back most excited.
Fun is 100% guaranteed by me or the money back.
The ticket is rather moderate at $8 per person.

Address: Mont-Tremblant activity area
After parking in one of the 3 parking areas, we hiked and explored the Mountain Sector of Mont-Tremblant. The architecture of buildings is beautiful and reminds one of Europe. We took the chair lift rides at the entrance to the sector and had a birds eye view of the buildings while moving to the base of Mont-Tremblant, that is, the centre of all mountain related activities. One can walk to this area also. On subsequent numerous occasions, we took the chair lift, as well as hiked both ways.
A word of caution: The chair lifts stop operating at 5:00 pm and 5:30 pm depending on the day of the week. So if you spend too much time on the Mountain top or on mountain activities then you will have to walk down the mountain sector. This is something we encourage to do in any case - walk and admire the beauty of the architecture and enjoy snacks in one of the numerous restaurants.

Owned by former NHL stars Eric Desjardins and Vincent Damphousse, the Spa Scandinave in Mont-Tremblant was one of the first Nordic spas to open in the province of Quebec.
We originally decided to go there after discovering (and loving) a traditional Finnish sauna during our trip in Finland. The Spa Scandinave not only had a Finnish sauna, it also had a Norwegian steam bath as well as whirlpools and a small waterfall. To complete the "Scandinavian" (I know, Finland is not part of Scandinavia) trio, Swedish massages are also offered.
When we went there, we only paid for the Scandinavian baths, foregoing the massages and other potentially expensive services. For us, the fun (and subsequent relaxation) lies in the repeated heat-cold cycles. The only disappointment was the fact that the Diable river was closed. (When it isn't too wild, spa guests can jump in the river to cool down instead of going in the exterior baths.)
Please note the Spa Scandinave has no sleeping accommodations, but the nearby Mont-Tremblant resort village has plenty of hotels, while the old charming village of Saint-Jovite, now part of the Mont-Tremblant town, has several bed and breakfasts.

The fall season is very nice in quebec, Laurentiens (Laurentides) region with Mont-tremblant is nice place where you can enjoy the beautiful nature and the symphony of autumn colors.
Go walking on the mountain until the summit and from time to time take a look back, you will see a splendid breath-taking views with mixed colors! just beautiful!!

This was a one day trip but it was soo nice to be in this big space of nature, far away from the city. The parc national du Mont-tremblant is a big park, actualy is the biggest and the first created in Quebec, it's perfect for those who are looking for the beautiful nature and quit place to stay some time and relax.
We went to the falls "chuttes de diable", it's not so big but still nice to see, the area is so quit and nice, the park is also open for camping.

In fact it was already the spring when I came to Mt. Tremblant and made this picture.... however, the ski season wasn't over yet and you could still see several people skiing, even in the middle of the week...!! Here's a view of the vacation apartments with the ski slopes in the background... there was hardly any snow left in the streets and none on the buildings' roofs, but apparently there was still a good amount of it on the mountains to ski.....

The luge goes 1.4km down the mountain side. It's got a seat close to the ground...seems safe to ride, as even children can ride them too. But it is kind of expensive for just one ride, at $10. Not sure if people would go for it more than once, but it is much cheaper if you get more rides or the family package.
Open from May to October.

A free ride above the Mont Tremblant resort area to bring you from the parking area to the mountain side. It passes above a hotel swimming pool, mini golf course, and give you a birds eye view of the resort area. It is a convenient ride to the other side of the resort, as it is a slightly uphill walk from the parking area.

If you have been to Whistler, you'll notice that it it very similar to Mont Tremblant. There are many shops and restaurants in the pedestrian only resort area. And there are many summer and winter activities within the resort. But it is rather expensive to stay in this area.
