Vaudreuil-Soulanges’s green playground, the town of Rigaud, its mountain, and the rolling farmlands that surround it offer some of the most beautiful scenery and exciting attractions around. The town centre itself is bursting with well-preserved examples of charming Québécois farmhouses, historic churches, and vintage commercial buildings and, while it may seem trapped in time, the bustling shops and restaurants have everything you need. The mountain, which is the region’s largest area of greenspace, has something to offer every season of the year. A ski hill in winter, a paradise for hikers, mountain bikers, and tree-climbers in spring, summer and fall, Mont Rigaud is a gift for the outdoorsy type; only 40 minutes from Montréal and less than two hours from Ottawa, there’s no excuse to not plan a weekend adventure in Rigaud. Come in the fall for one of the biggest festivals in the area! Further away from the mountain, visitors will find family-style campgrounds, sprawling ranches, and charming country restaurants.
