Saint-Jean-de-Matha and surroundings

A must-visit destination with so much to see and experience

Just one hour from Montreal is where the foothills begin. Along our charming country roads, you can visit duck farmers, cheesemakers and Trappist monks who take great pleasure in satisfying foodies. Golfers will love playing in our green valleys and hikers can enjoy easy access to Chutes Monte-à-Peine-et-des-Dalles Regional Park. A 17-km network of hiking trails, waterfalls and cascades, footbridges and panoramic lookout points make it a must-visit park—as is Montagne Coupée, where the view is spectacular. On a clear day, you can see the Montreal skyline in the distance. Mushroom pickers and birdwatchers will enjoy uncovering the area’s best kept secrets.

Don’t miss a visit to Maison Louis Cyr, home of the man who is still considered the strongest of all time. That’s pretty spectacular too!
