It is my great pleasure to welcome you to our beautiful Montérégie region. I am confident you will be seduced by the region's beauty and incredible agri-tourist product offering.

 

 

Rightfully described as the “Garden of Québec”, Montérégie leads the Québec agri-tourist sector, and invites you to yield to your senses as you discover the wonderful offerings of the region’s agricultural producers. Montérégie producers are passionate individuals who are proud to share their know-how and who graciously invite you to visit their facilities.

In spring and in the fall, the cider mills that make up the Cider Route and the orchards of Montérégie welcome you to savour the products of the regional terroir. As Québec’s leading region when it comes to cider and apple production, Montérégie annually produces a wide array of distinctive and innovative ciders. Montérégie is also a pioneering region when it comes to ice cider production.

The region's bucolic landscapes will enhance the discovery of the many vineyards that dot its vast territory and make up of the Montérégie Wine Route. Montérégie benefits from a unique micro-climate, which allows the region to produce authentic, high quality products, much to the delight of wine enthusiasts.

In the winter, as the Monteregian hills become blanketed by snow, lovers of wide open spaces can rediscover the region's many hidden treasures. Whether for a hike, a snowshoe or cross-country skiing outing, or even a day of snow tubing, the breathtaking landscapes will delight you. For those who are not faint hearted, a winter balloon ride is a must!

In late February, Montérégie shares the best it has to offer with those with a sweet tooth: maple! Prime producer of this jewel of the Québec terroir, Montérégie offers a truly special—and sweet— experience.

Finally, I invite cycling enthusiasts to come discover our many bike paths this summer. There is something for all tastes, and you will look forward to coming back to visit us. I wish you pleasant getaways in Montérégie!
