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. Making your way along our charming country roads, stop in to meet our duck farmers, cheesemakers and Trappist monks who all take great pleasure in satisfying foodies.

Saint-Jean-de-Matha is a must-visit spot for winter sports. Whether you prefer the thrill of snow tubing or skiing on our many kilometres of cross-country trails, you’re sure to have loads of fun. Home to legendary strongman Louis Cyr, it’s not surprising that Saint-Jean-de-Matha wields such power over travellers. Be sure to plan a visit to his house-museum!
