Another big business deal closed. Last night’s wine and tapas in Montreal’s Old Port is now a fond memory, as the morning sun rises over the busy urban landscape.

Awakened by the aroma of coffee and the shuffling of motorcycle gear, the adrenaline rush sets in. It’s time to saddle up for an exhilarating motorcycle journey along Highway 15. The destination: Mont-Tremblant, Quebec.

With the will to explore, life couldn’t be better. Revved up and ready, excitement builds as the city roads fade into the backdrop. A quiet confidence becomes a trusting guide.

The winding back roads lead into a rocky landscape and a snapshot of Lac Mercier comes into view. Trailing full-throttle into Saint-Sauveur, a welcomed pause for a breath of fresh mountain air.

Curves and inclines continue into the village of Val-David, where a playful conversation over an afternoon espresso sets the mood.

Life is good in Mont-Tremblant: European charm wrapped up in Quebecois hospitality.
