The weather is getting warmer, the days are getting longer and the doors to summer are slowly opening, but sometimes we don’t know what to do with the strange energy that spring brings. That’s why this guide is sure to inspire you.

Discovery Podcast

Transport yourself to the beginning of the 20th century on a historical journey to discover the origins of Mont-Laurier. You will walk through the streets of the city center to admire the emblematic buildings that still stand in time. At each point you will be able to listen to an explanatory narration of each historical place of the circuit. The 1.70 km long route, with 12 audio clips, starts at 425 du Pont Street, in front of the current offices of the MRC d’Antoine-Labelle. Take advantage of your walk in the area to discover the flavors of local producers who will be nearby. There’s nothing better than filling your belly and your mind at the same time 😉
