The Suroît is the westernmost region of the Montérégie, located between Montréal and Ontario. It owes its name from the strong wind that blows from the southwest on its territory, indicating a rise in the temperatures. The important river system of this area includes the lakes Saint-Louis and des Deux-Montagnes, the Ottawa River and the St. Lawrence River. Water sports are of course very popular, but you can also go hiking around mount Rigaud, or go bird-watching in the Réserve national de faune du lac Saint-François.
You can also visit the Beauharnois locks, located on the Canal bearing the same name, as well as some British fortifications and the beautiful ancient seigniorial estates. Relive a page of Quebec’s history at the two National Historic Sites of Canada and follow the panoramic roads. They offer a breathtaking view on the numerous rivers of the region.
