Estérel Resort Near Montreal Feels Like Travelling Abroad

Just one hour away from Montreal, Estérel Resort is the perfect weekend getaway for relaxation and recharging.

Though the resort is in Quebec, you can still sip cocktails on sandy beaches, take a dip in multiple pools and tubs, and enjoy delicious food from three on-site restaurants — all while surrounded by three lakes and the gorgeous nature of the Laurentians.

While you're there, you can also explore the Laurentians through outdoor activities like paddleboarding, canoeing, kayaking, pedal boating and biking.

Motorboats are available for rent for an afternoon of cruising on Quebec waters, for groups of eight to 13 people.

The resort's Nordic thermal spa features hot tubs, a polar bath, a dry sauna, a "hammam" sauna and a barrel sauna on the lake. Two heated outdoor pools are available for resort-goers year-round.
