Tremblant's Sleeping Giant Awakens

Find Mont Tremblant's legendary guardian spirit at the new Tonga Lumina multimedia night walk. Hope you're not afraid of the dark....

The closest thing to a haunted house at a ski resort, the new Tonga Lumina night walk opened last month at Quebec's Mont Tremblant. Best described as an immersive, interactive, multimedia experience for guests, this attraction brings the legend of Mont Tremblant’s guardian spirit to life on a walking journey through Tremblant’s mid-mountain forest.

The attraction is based on a native legend that the guardian spirit of the Laurentian Range, a powerful giant, would make the mountains quake when the laws of nature were not respected. As the story goes, Tremblant—which means trembling in French—is the sleeping giant’s home.

Guests begin the mile-long night walk by riding the Flying Mile lift to the trailhead. Each walker dons an "amulet of the forgotten people” that reacts to the surroundings as they progress (pretty cool, we must admit). Eventually, guided by clues and illuminated features, they reach the giant. No spoilers here. We're not ruining the surprise. 

The night walk is open every night through October. Departures begin at sundown and are capped at 300 people per half hour, guaranteeing a more immersive experience. For a little taste of what to expect, click the video below.

Mont Tremblant

Mont Tremblant has a decidedly European flavor—from the cobbled streets to the French chatter in the lift lines.
