Eastern Townships

Quebec City, Canada

Eastern Township

Called the Eastern Townships, or, en français, Cantons-de-l’Est, the highway-connected area south of the St. Lawrence and north of the U.S. border offers visitors a multitude of ways to experience what it has to offer.

A trip to the French countryside might be a little ambitious for a getaway, but this country’s very own French Canadian countryside will do very nicely – and you don’t have to worry about exchange rates or passports. East of Montreal you’ll find green fields, rolling hills, stunning sprays of wildflowers, rivers and lakes, mountains, and a series of small towns.

Eastern Townships is an all-season destination. Winter offers downhill skiing at Mont Orford, ice fishing on Lake Massawippi, and snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and snowmobiling on trails throughout the region. Summer is busiest, with golf, tennis, sailing, kayaking, windsurfing, fishing, hiking, and biking. Spring and autumn bring fewer crowds and colorful foliage.
