The beautiful is slowly starting to point the tip of his nose and the temperatures are also rising. Montreal and its surroundings are a dynamic region where there is no shortage of activities, but when the weather comes you will have endless possibilities, each as diverse as the next.
This is the perfect time to go explore the magnificent and countless lakes that are found in Quebec. Here is a list of 6 lakes in Quebec to absolutely see during your excursions.
Considered one of the 10 most beautiful lakes in Quebec, Massawippi means “great deep lake” in Abenaki an indigenous people. It is true that this lake reaches places 86 meters deep.
Leaving aside its beauty, this lake is famous for sport fishing and bird watching. Being 1 hour 30 minutes from Montreal, you could take advantage of these large green spaces and cool off by swimming in the lake.
Lac Brome is located next to the city of the same name and is only an hour’s drive from Montreal.
You can take advantage of these large bodies of water to cool off on the famous Douglass beach, which offers a very beautiful view of the clear water of the lake as well as picnic areas. It’s also a great place to fish if you’re a fan of the sport.
No, the lake is not pink as the name suggests, but that does not prevent it from being the most exceptional lake in Gatineau Park. It is just under 3 hours from Montreal. Unfortunately, swimming is prohibited in the lake, but the water is so beautiful that it is worth the detour.
In addition, you can take advantage of the trails around the lake for hiking or cycling.
