While you may not love them when they’re covering your lawn and raking them can sometimes feel endless; the orange, red, and gold hues of fall sure are beautiful to look at. And there’s no better place to take in the fall foliage in Quebec than in the Laurentians. With its vast, tree covered hillside landscape, witnessing the spectacular colours every year is more of an annual event than a season. However, the event is short-lived – blink and you may miss it! The fall foliage season in Quebec generally runs from the mid September to the end of October; with late September to early October likely being your best bet for admiring the picturesque colours. Here are the best ways and places to admire the foliage in the Laurentians this fall:
Admire the Leaves On One of The Laurentians’ Many Trails
Trails in the touristic region include le P’tit Train du Nord, Doncaster Park, Val-David and Val-Morin Regional Parks, the Aerobic Corridor, and many more. Hike the trails by foot and take in the scenery at a leisurely pace or bike the trails and watch the beautiful colours fly by. Other more non-traditional ways to explore the trails and take in the backdrop include horseback riding and ATV. Make the most of the fall foliage season in the Laurentians and reserve our 5 nights Fall Colours package.

This year, Saint-Sauveur’s annual Fall Colour Festival takes place on weekends from September 19th to October 12th. The festival includes rides and breathtaking rides up the chairlift. After a fun day at Sauveur, come unwind at our auberge in Sainte-Adèle.
