Montérégie

  • monteregie
Easy getaways close to Montréal

The dominant features of this region dotted with towns, villages and fertile fields are history and food. The Rivière Richelieu that starts in Lake Champlain on the Canada-U.S. border and empties into the St. Lawrence has seen its share of trade, not to mention skirmishes with First Nations and our neighbours to the south. The region has a Cider route that runs the gamut of the local brewers. If wine is more your thing, then the Montérégie Wine route will take you to a number of vineyards. Montérégie boasts the largest number of commercial sugar shacks in Québec: each spring, the rising of the sap signals the start of the feasting.

Consisting of nearly nine-tenths wilderness—good news for those who love the great outdoors—the region is marked by its religious and industrial history as much as by its cultural creativity and festive outlook.
