Visit the enchanted forest at Mont Tremblant

Tonga Lumina, the latest project by superstar Montreal multimedia company Moment Factory, has taken over Mont Tremblant.

The 1.5 km forest walk takes visitors on a magical, illuminated night tour of the forest and takes about an hour to complete.

Based on the story of a sleeping giant, the last of his kind and protector of the wooded lands, the interactive tour invites guests to engage in a sensory experience. Setting out on a quest to the heart of the mountain, curious visitors are encouraged to explore the giant’s tracks along the forest trail, searching for hidden clues left behind by its keeper.

When: Now until October 9
Where: Mont- Tremblant, 1000 Chemin Des Voyageurs
