The Eastern Townships is a tourist region and a former administrative region in southeastern Quebec, Canada, situated between the former seigneuries south of the Saint Lawrence River and the United States border.

Just 140 km from Montreal, North Hatley, a quaint pictoresque village at the north end of Lake Massawippi is a haven of tranquility, art and gastronomy and is protected as a world heritage site.

Besides its scenic setting, North Hatley holds its own as a member of the Association of Quebec’s most beautiful villages. Both the lake and the village boast numerous activities to make the most of your stay. Enjoy a round of golf, head to the beach and hit the water sports, go on a bicycle rides or a stroll through the village and the parks.

At this time of year, skating, cross-country skiing, curling and other winter sports become popular and draw visitors from all over to enjoy this winter wonderland.

North Hatley boasts a vibrant artistic community, with painters, sculpters and potters congregating to the area, solely for its natural beauty. North Hatley has found itself a background setting for a few films, including the film ‘Secret Window’, starring Johnny Depp. Explore the boutiques and discover the heritage properties that line the village’s picturesque streets.
