The Eastern Townships in Quebec look absolutely breathtaking in the fall
Fall colours are in full swing across Canada, and the Eastern Townships in Quebec is one region that never holds back when it comes to brilliant foliage.
Located just an hour from Montreal, the Eastern Townships, or, en français, Cantons-de-l’Est is a cluster of fascinating, picturesque villages, dotted with lakes, cottages, wineries and rolling hills.
Situated south of the St. Lawrence, the region is known for its breathtaking fall colours this time of year as the accumulation of sugar in the sap brings out brilliant red hues in the leaves of the thousands of maple trees in the area.
The fall leaves are currently at their peak and the explosion of colours is the most beautiful spectacle.
With four provincial parks and many lakes and rivers, the area has an abundance of natural beauty and simply stunning views.
You can experience the Townships by following the Wine Route, which connects 20 vineyards in the Brome-Missisquoi region, or the Townships Trail, which will bring you through 31 towns and villages and even includes a special Colour Route so that you don’t miss all the best leaf-peeping spots.
The one thing we know for sure is no matter the route, you’re definitely going to enjoy the scenery through the Eastern Townships.
