Parc national du Mont-Tremblant

Via Ferrata
Mont Tremblant National Park was the first in Quebec's national parks system to offer the Via Ferrata or iron road: a half hike, half climb that is now among the most outstanding summer activities in the area.  Test your limits while ascending a near-vertical 200-meter rock face and crossing a river via swinging plank or wire bridge. While very active, it's not as daunting as it sounds and you are clipped into a steel cable that runs the length of the cliff. It's not quite the walk in the park that outdoorsy locals sometimes make it out to be either, so be prepared for a good workout. There are three different levels, lasting between 3–5 hours and no rock-climbing experience is necessary. But those with vertigo should be warned. At the summit you'll feel on top of the world looking down over a forest canopy and meandering rivers.
