Municipalité de Saint-Donat

Ranked second in 2015 among Quebec’s best municipalities for outdoor activities, a must-visit tourist destination in the Lanaudière region and right next door to Mont-Tremblant National Park, Saint-Donat offers a wide range of activities year-round, many of which are free: hiking, cycling, swimming, sailing, canoeing, golf and horseback riding.

Saint-Donat is the ideal place for a getaway. Inns, condos, cottages and campgrounds are just some of the options available to vacationers.

Inspired by the experience of French regional natural parks, the municipality of Saint-Donat has adopted a charter, helping it to showcase its full recreation and tourism potential, while maintaining an outstanding quality of life and ensuring environmentally-friendly development. Under the slogan “Park naturel habité” (“Inhabited natural park”), Saint-Donat stands as a leader among municipalities that are harmonizing economic and social development, while ensuring the sustainable development of their natural resources.
