Avid skiers from around the globe come to Mont Tremblant to enjoy the view from area mountain tops, yet some prefer to get even higher. A range of aerial adventures await those who want to see the landscape from a much different perspective.
Plenty of art exhibitions in Mont Tremblant feature the Laurentian Mountains, but why settle for a two-dimensional picture when you can see the majesty in 3D? Take a helicopter tour that provides each passenger with a window seat while a professional with over three-thousand hours of flight time hovers above the mountain sides and provides narrative on the area. Take a ten, twenty, thirty, or hour ride. You may have a great view from your Mont Tremblant luxury rentals, but nothing compares to this.
Depending on length chosen, see Lake Tremblant, Iroquois Falls, Rouge River Valley, Lake Mercier, Mont-Tremblant Village, and more sites.
Tremblant Airplane Tours are based out of the Gray Rocks Airport. Operating since 1993, experienced flight instructors take you above the clouds in 3-passenger Cessnas. The adventures are not for those staying at Mont Tremblant resorts alone; the airport is less than 2 hours for those who live in Montreal and Ottawa.
Take family and friends on a thrilling zip-line tour, going from treetop to treetop amid a series of courses. Additionally, test your balance on tightropes and your ability to calm your nerves on suspension bridges. This adventure starts at the Mont Tremblant resort and is less than a 2-hour drive for those who live or stay in Montreal. The activity is divided into 4 courses that increase in level of difficulty. The easier courses consist of ladders, monkey bars, and timber bridges as well as sandwich nets, beams, and assorted obstacles.
In addition to increased level of difficulty, elevation gets higher as you proceed. The ‘Diable’ advanced course is for those who want to test their strength, agility, and bravery. Filled with uneven ladders, monkey bridges, hoops, and multi-platform bridges, challenges 10 metres above ground keep brave newcomers and seasoned veterans coming back. The ‘Geant’ is the final course and reserved for those comfortable engaging in an intermediate-level course. Cables will slide, platforms will warrant balance, and your adrenaline will rush while you attempt to complete this advanced course.
Pilot for a Day
Do you think you have what it takes to be an actual pilot (for a day)? Those who have always dreamed of flying have wishes come to fruition here. Flying above the Laurentian Mountains, a seasoned instructor gives a one-hour class that covers the basics of operation, preflight checks, and the knowledge needed to fly for fifty minutes. It all ends with a 15-minute debriefing and reality check. However, you don’t have to convince friends and family members of your newfound skills; you’re welcome to take two passengers along for the ride to see for themselves.
Mont Tremblant is definitely for skiers, but you’ll stay a head above the rest when you reserve a helicopter or airplane ride. Additionally, some who are brave enough to tackle the toughest of ski runs are no match for the treetop obstacle courses. Are you?
