Cantons-de-l’Est

General Information:

The first signs of your arrival in the Eastern Townships are the mountains. When one knows that the foothills of the Appalachians make up the landscape of the region, one understands just to what point the mountains are omnipresent. The landscape is equally composed of small, gracious, wooded valleys which tie in beautifully with the lofty peaks, some of which attain 1,000 feet in altitude.
