My First Canadian Fall Experience

by / / in Activities Canada Quebec Travels/ 4 Comment(s)


My first fall experience is exciting, I can say that it is the season I love the most, partly because I arrived on late summer and at that time it was already getting cold. So basically I was not able to experience the real summer while Winter on the other hand is the season “je deteste!” Right now, it is still a bit cold because it is still spring, but I don’t mind as long as I am not wearing the winter gear anymore.


By the time fall started, I was out and about with my newly found friends here in Montreal to visit exciting places.

Apple Picking at Verger Richard Legault


I’ve never seen an Apple tree until I arrived in Canada, but I use to see a lot of movies were people are picking apples for a living. At that time, I was even wondering how it feels like to become an apple picker. Would I be eating and picking apples at the same time? Haha!

The place we visited is Verger Richard Legault located at Saint-Joseph-du-Lac, it is outside Montreal. The entrance is free but you will have to buy a bag for you to place the apples. I already forgot how much it was, but that bag can really hold up to 30-40 pieces of apples.


We were transported by this tractor to the Apple field, passing through lush green scenery of tall trees, cold wind on my face it feels very country.

These are the apples we got. Too many in 1 bag so my friend and I decided to share 1 bag of apples.

Mount Tremblant


I was really happy we visited Mount Tremblant during Fall because trees are really beautiful with different colors. It was a few hours drive from Montreal, but even if it is a bit of a long drive, you will not get bored because you will see hills and mountains with different colors, it was a superb experience for me. All I uttered are ohhs and wows.


We joined a group of people in a tour bus because all of us are new comers in Canada and none of us own a car. Tour bus is fine but the disadvantage is that, the stay is shorter and you will be in a hurry because there is a given time for the tour and after that the bus will leave, and you don’t want to miss the bus. So it is always a good idea to go for a road trip in a car with friends.

There are 2 cable cars that you need to ride on before you arrive at the peak. This is the first one, it is an open cable car and the ride is shorter.

This is the second cable car, it is called Panorama Cable car, this time it is a closed cable car and the ride is longer but totally worth it because the view is so magnificent.


Arrived at the peak and surprise it was 2 degrees, which is the coldest I’ve experienced at that time. We were doing picnic at the peak while shivering inside because we did not come very much prepared.

Blessed to be with these beautiful girls; Margriet, Anne, Che, Marie, Matet and Belle. We are all new comers except Belle, the girl beside me who is also one of the closest friend I have in Canada.

Lake Cruise at Lac Des Sables


En route to Montreal, we dropped by Lac Des Sables for a lake cruise. Another amazing experience for me, this is one of the best days of my life and I learned to appreciate the beauty of nature more.

It was very cold outside but I surely don’t mind because the view is very picturesque, I took a thousand of snap shots.

Sherbrooke St.


One of the things I do during my day off is to stroll around downtown. Supposed to be, me and my friend May are going to visit the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, but it was already closed when we arrived, so we just took a photo outside and stroll around Sherbrooke St.

Hopefully in the future, I will be able to give more information about the places that I will visit, but since this is just a summary of my Fall experience, I didn’t go much into details.


That’s it for now, I will be blogging my end of summer experience in my future post.
