The foothills of Mount Brome in southern Quebec offer a place to enjoy year-round outdoor pursuits, relaxation and family-friendly activities.
Bromont is a lively Canadian town that invites visitors to relax, enjoy spectacular natural scenery and participate in outdoor adventures. Its attractions range from a year-round sports resort and superb golf courses to spas, artisanal shopping and cultural festivals. Bromont is in Quebec’s Eastern Townships, surrounded by lakes, mountains and sprawling countryside.
Throughout the year the 1,818-foot-high (554-meter) Mount Brome is the focal point of Bromont’s attractions and activities. Here you’ll find Ski Bromont, a multipurpose mountain resort. In winter it’s popular with skiers and snowboarders who come to explore over 100 trails. Visit in summer to discover about 62 miles (100 kilometers) of mountain bike trails and a waterpark, with pools, slides and rafting rivers.
At the northern base of Mount Brome is Bromont’s town center, an easygoing district of alpine-style architecture, art galleries, independent boutiques, bistros and restaurants. Discover the history of chocolate at Le Musée du Chocolat. Investigate the art exhibitions and workshops at L’Espace Blanc and the Arterie Gallery. Attend musicals and comedy shows at Theatre Bromont. Browse over 1,000 stalls for bargains and one-of-a-kind items at Bromont Flea Market, open from April to the end of October.

Join horseback riding excursions at Bromont Equestrian Center. Rent a bike and travel along La Villageoise, a paved trail connecting the town center with the 31-mile-long (50-kilometer) Estriade Trail. Relax on the freshwater beach at Lake Bromont or visit Balnea Thermal Reserve’s walking trails, private lake and thermal spas.
The area has a busy schedule of cultural events too, including June’s Bromont Country Blues festival and August’s Bromont en Art visual arts Symposium. Spot military, vintage and specialist aircraft and enjoy flying displays during August’s Eastern Townships Airshow.
Bromont is about a 1-hour drive east of Montreal. It’s a French-speaking town, although English is also widely spoken. Influences from both cultures are visible in the town’s attractions, cuisine and history.
