The Lanaudière region spreads out immediately to the north of Montréal, from the St. Lawrence plain to the beginning of the Laurentian plateau. Except for the section that is a part of the metropolitan region, the Lanaudière region consists of calm lakes and rivers, farmland, wild forests and great open spaces. Lanaudière’s hiking infrastructure is developing nicely. Many hiking areas boast excellent networks of well-marked and well-maintained trails.
Furthermore, the National Trail is increasingly present in the region, with over 150km of trails.
