Mont Tremblant Autumn Itinerary: The BEST Fall Activities

Visiting Mont Tremblant anytime of the year is incredible, however, Mont Tremblant in fall is out of this world.

I went to Mont Tremblant for my best friend’s bachelorette last fall and sprained my ankle so bad, (I am only now pain free, 8 months later).

EVEN WITH the intense sprain, our trip to Mont Tremblant was so amazing and I can’t wait to go back.

This Mont Tremblant autumn itinerary is jam packed with activity and relaxation.

I will have you admiring the fall colours from the Lake, from the mountains and even from the trees… huh? Keep reading I will explain.

Pack your bags this fall and get ready to visit this Quebec gem!

Is Mont Tremblant Worth Visiting in Autumn?

Mont Tremblant is a must-visit destination, not only in Quebec but also throughout Canada. 

Having made the trip to Mont Tremblant from Toronto myself, I can confidently say that the drive is truly worth it.

During the fall months, Mont Tremblant turns into one of the most breathtaking destinations for seeing the fiery fall foliage in the mountains. I personally think it beats Ontario for best fall colours.

There is just something special about visiting Mont Tremblant in fall.

With the summer crowds dying down, the weather crisp and refreshing and the mountains full of oranges and reds, you are in for a true fall getaway. 

On top of it being a great time of year to visit, the fall activities in Mont Tremblant are just as enjoyable, if not more so, without the heat of summer.

Whether it’s hiking in the mountains, zip-lining through the trees or enjoying Lac Tremblant, your Mont Tremblant autumn getaway will be an unforgettable experience.

Is Mont Tremblant in Fall a good time to visit? Weather in Fall

Fall in Mont Tremblant is an amazing time to visit. The fall colours are definitely the highlight, however, all of the activities are just as amazing to do in the fall months. 

The autumn weather in Mont Tremblant typically spans from a low of 1°C (33°F) to 20°C (68°F) high in September and October.

Rainfall becomes less frequent in the fall compared to the summer months, with an average of  5-7 days of rain per fall month.

While snow may occasionally make an appearance in late October, it is more common to start in November. 

If you are looking for the BEST of Mont Tremblant in the fall, September and October are the ideal months to visit, for nice temperatures and stunning views.

How to Get to Mont Tremblant

Mont Tremblant is easily accessible from major cities like Montreal and Toronto, Ontario.

If you are traveling from outside the country, your journey will likely begin by flying into Montreal, Quebec.

If you need to book a flight, set price alerts on Skyscanner for deals & discounts!

Getting to Mont Tremblant from Montreal

If you begin your trip in Montreal, the most convenient way to reach Mont Tremblant is by driving.

Start by flying into YUL, Montreal’s international airport, which offers numerous daily flights from around the world.

Once you arrive, you can rent a car at the airport and embark on the scenic drive to Mont Tremblant. I recommend renting your car BEFORE your trip to ensure there is one for you.

Check out Discover Cars for discounts!

The drive typically takes just under 1.5 hours, offering a straightforward route with beautiful views.

Alternatively, if you prefer not to drive, you can opt for a bus service from Montreal to Mont Tremblant. While the bus journey takes longer, around 3 hours (with stops), it is still super convenient for those wishing to visit Mont Tremblant.

Bus tickets cost approximately $40 CAD one way.

Check out Busbud for tickets.

Getting to Mont Tremblant from Toronto

If you are traveling from Toronto to Mont Tremblant, driving is your best bet. 

If you live in Toronto like me, the 6 hour car drive to Mont Tremblant does not phase us… we are used to driving long hours to just get anywhere outside the city. 😂

If you are visiting Toronto as a trip, renting a car is recommended for your ride to Mont Tremblant.

Although 6 hours is a long drive, there are several places to stop along the way that would be great for a 1 night stay. 

I used to live in Kingston, Ontario for school and definitely recommend a stop here, Queen’s University along Lake Ontario is stunning.

You could also opt to do an overnight stay in Ottawa, Canada’s capital! 

Sample Toronto to Mont Tremblant Road Trip Itinerary

  1. 2 Days in Toronto
  2. Toronto -> Kingston: 3 hour drive, stop for lunch & walk around
  3. Kingston -> Ottawa: 2 hour drive
  4. Ottawa: Stay for 1 night & explore
  5. Ottawa -> Mont Tremblant: 2 hour drive

To reach Mont Tremblant from Toronto, start by driving eastbound on Highway 401 for approximately 4 hours until you reach Highway ON-416 North.

Continue here for about 1 hour, passing through Ottawa and Gatineau, Quebec. 

From there, follow Autoroute 50, and finally take Highway 323 North to Mont Tremblant.

… or just use Google Maps 😂

Where to Stay in Mont Tremblant

When I went to Mont Tremblant last fall it was for a bachelorette and we stayed in the most gorgeous chalet vacation rental. Mont Tremblant just screams gorgeous chalet with your girl friends.

Our chalet in Mont Tremblant

I highly recommend a chalet bachelorette in Mont Tremblant. 

We stayed close to the Scandinave Spa and had the best time.

I recommend checking out Mont Tremblant vacation rentals before looking into hotels.

I would stay outside the village and drive in. 

If you want to stay in a hotel, check out the below options!

Fairmont Tremblant (Luxury)

Stay at the epitome of luxury at the Fairmont Tremblant.

Located at the base of the mountain and next to all major tourist attractions and activities in Mont Tremblant.

There are not many budget hotels in Mont-Tremblant, you will have to stay further out.

How Many Days Do You Need in Mont Tremblant?

In my experience, I recommend spending 3 to 4 days in Mont Tremblant.

If visiting from outside of Quebec, the journey to get there can be a bit of a hassle, so it’s best to stay as long as you can to get the most out of this great town.

Staying for at least 3 days allows you to fully immerse yourself in everything the area has to offer.

There is so much to see and do that you will be very busy on your 3 to 4 days in Mont Tremblant. You can even extend this out into 5 or 6 days. 

Colourful hiking, delicious restaurants, adrenaline pumping activities, water sports, spas, casinos; you will not be bored, trust me!

3 Days in Mont Tremblant Autumn Itinerary

Prices listed below are in CAD, unless otherwise specified. Updated in 2024.

Day 1: Travel Day & Mont Tremblant Pedestrian Village

Morning: Travel

Finish packing your bags and hit the road for Mont Tremblant!

Depending on your starting location, adjust your leave time to make it to Mont Tremblant for early afternoon.

Afternoon: Mont Tremblant Pedestrian Village

Once you’ve settled into your accommodation, it’s time to head out and explore Mont Tremblant’s pedestrian village.

Like many ski villages, vehicle traffic is restricted, allowing you to wander at your own pace without being worried about cars! These are my favourite types of towns to wander through.

Explore the variety of shops that line the streets, many of which are outdoor sports brands, Columbia, Helly Hansen, Salomon, and Explore!.

If you’re craving something sweet, indulge in a treat from the candy shop or get an ice cream at Chocolato

After strolling through the village, it’s time for a delicious meal. For a cozy and traditional experience, consider eating at La Savoie, for a fondue dinner.

Alternatively, if you’re in the mood for a more laid-back experience, head to La Diable for a brewpub feel and hearty food.

Opt for a relaxing evening as your zip-lining adventure starts early tomorrow!

Day 2: Zip lining Adventure & Scandinave Spa

Morning: Zip line Adventure

Get ready for a morning of ADVENTURE. I have been zip-lining in Costa Rica and now in Mont Tremblant.

I loved both for different reasons but Mont Tremblant’s zipline is one of the most beautiful views I have seen during the fall. 

The colours you will see on this zipline are INSANE.

Their zip-lines are designed so that the guides do ALL of the hard work for you. You will not be stopping on your own.

You can also go UPSIDE DOWN. It is a wild time.

Story Time

I sprained my ankle sooo badly doing this activity that I had to be medically rescued (this was my own doing, I tripped while hiking)… however, I still HIGHLY recommend it.

The zip lines are TOTALLY safe. I was just a clumsy hiker. 🤦🏼‍♀️

Afternoon: Scandinave Spa

You need some relaxation after your adventure filled morning of zip-lining and hiking.

Pack a bathing suit and head to the amazing Scandinave Spa.

Scandinave Spa in Mont Tremblant
Scandinave Spa, Mont Tremblant

My husband and I love Scandinave Spa, we’ve been to the Blue Mountain spa a few times and I actually preferred the Mont Tremblant Scandinave Spa.

I always recommend booking a massage on top of your thermal waters package, however, if you don’t want to spend the extra money, the thermal baths are MORE than enough relaxation.

Book in advance on their website to ensure you and your travel bud(s) get in!

All you need is your confirmation receipt of zip-lining from the same season! 

You can use it anytime during your holiday, it does not have to be on the same day.

Visit their website for the Spa & Zip-line promo.

This offer is valid 7 days a week, it is NOT valid on Canadian Thanksgiving.

Evening: Night Out in the Village!

If you’ve regained some energy after relaxing at the spa, head out for an evening in the village. We were on a bachelorette and wanted to go out dancing so we chose Central Tapas & Nightclub. 

We had a ton of fun dancing the night away. If you are not in the dancing mood, opt for a nice dinner out instead!
