Located 50 km ( 30 mi) southeast of downtown Montreal on the shores of the Richelieu River. Situated in an area rich with fertile soil, agrotourism is one of the region's biggest draws, boasting orchards and cider-houses, vineyards and wineries, maple sugar shacks and more. Visit the Colours of the Countryside Museum to learn more about the local agricultural history or try the Canadian Institute of Conservation to view artifacts, photos and exhibits on the region's First Nations, military and domestic heritage. Kids will love getting lost in Le Labyrinthe, a massive 100,000 sq m (1,076,400 sq ft) cornfield maze, while the entire family can join thousands of locals and visitors to marvel at the spectacle created when hundreds of colourful hot air balloons take flight during the International des Montgolfières festival. Golfers will be delighted with the city's many golf courses including the Club de Golf de la Vallée des Forts.
The choice of activities in the area is quite impressive. The International Balloon Festival, Park Safari, biking trails, Fort-Lennox and Fort-Chambly are just a few of many tourist attractions. We will be happy to inform you about the boat tours on Richelieu river, local museums, vineries and splendid golf fields.
