Quebec's Eastern Townships or the Cantons de l'Est or l'Estrie is located south,
and as the name indicates to the east, of Montreal. At the upper
reaches of the Appalachian Range, the area consists of rolling farmland in the shadows of large mountains, with some reaching 1000 meters or more.
Several large lakes can be found in the area, including Lake Memphremagog, which stretches from Magog into the United States.
One of our favorites for an evening paddle is Lac Saint-Francois, in Frontenac Park. Lac Stuckley in Mont Orford Park is a another excellent destination for a quiet paddle on a warm summer evening.

The Monteregie region wraps around the island of Montreal in the west and the south. ( Map of Monteregie ) Following the banks of the Ottawa River and the south shore of the Saint Lawrence, the region is a stones throw from this great city. A fertile area of the Saint-Lawrence lowlands, it's broken up by the presence of several obtrusive mountains that rise up out of nowhere from the valley's floor. Standing like sentinels they add a unique visual dimension to the region.
