This yellow canoe stands out sharply against the muted colours of Lake Monroe and the hazy fog that is just settling over the mountains in the background of the picture. Lac Monroe is part of the extensive waterways in Parc national du Mont Tremblant, which is a Provincial Park of Quebec located in the Laurentides region. This canoe is ready to be pushed off in to the water as the oars are just resting against the sides.
Lac Monroe is one of the areas in Parc national du Mont Tremblant that visitors can rent canoes from and there are even packages that can be purchased so that you get the most out of your canoeing experience. This park is famous for its canoeing and Lac Monroe is just one of about four hundred lakes to explore along with six rivers; there will never be dull moment on the water in this region. Some areas are better for more experienced canoeists, but as you can see here, Lac Monroe is calm and vast and would be a perfect place to 'get your oars and canoe wet' before tackling some of the other areas.
The whole park is about 1492 square kilometres and not only can people canoe, they can also camp and hike, go mountain biking and in the winter it is a very popular destination for skiing and snow shoeing. It is a beautiful and vast example of the Canadian wilderness at its best and is guaranteed to have something for everyone.
