Long regarded as the biggest and best corn maze near Montreal, Verger Labonté has been hosting corn labyrinths on their farm for the last 15 years and change. With puzzles and tests spread across three stages organized by age group, all following its Chronologik time-travelling theme with its own main character Professor Tempus. Kids can be subject to mazes that last no more than 15 to 20 minutes, while adults can be thrown into the thick of it with puzzles that last as long as two hours. After all that, be sure to pick from their orchards and peruse their shop.

Divided into two elaborate routes—the first lasting about 20 minutes with the second lasting as long as an hour and change—Ferme Forget's corn maze is good for all ages, but best of families. The farm fills it up with activities along the way, ending with an end-of-season raffle. They also hold night mazes as well, depending on the season (check before you go!), and be sure to pick up baskets of berries in the summer or squash and pumpkins in the fall.

Spread out over 6 hectares of corn fields, this 8km-long corn maze is one of the biggest attractions this farm offers on top of starawberry, haskap and ground cherry picking when the season's right. Good for adults and families, the maze generally is open from mid-July to the beginning of November, and it gets decked out in some Halloween fun in October. There's two routes to take—one shorter one of 20 minutes and a longer one that lasts an hour—with some emergency exits along the way if you find it too challenging.

This one goes out to the kids. La Citrouille enchantée is one of the better squash and pumpkin picking spots outside of Montreal, but it's made twice as fun for families when the farm has people dressed up in costumes—past years have seen smurfs and minions—to keep everyone entertained as they go running through the mini maze they provide.

One the fall season hits, this farm sets up a sizeable playground for the kids. A corn maze is provided on top of U-pick pumpkins, hiking trails in the forest, a petting zoo, a playground and a picnic area to snack on pies, jams and pancakes. Unlike most farms sporting a corn maze, this one also has a winter component to check closer to Christmas time.

While it's spread out across 20 trails, the corn maze at Ferme La Fille du Roy tends to only take about 20 minutes to explore, according to their estimates. That said, it's a bit more geared towards kids having some fun (or a place to wander after picking fruits or squashes in autumn). After checking that out, be sure to check out their shop stocked with homemade goods and—if it's on the weekend—grab some pizza from their wood-fired oven.

Every yearm this farm outside the city throws together a 45-minutes maze for families to check out. Previous years have seen themes based on Harry Potter, as well as bouncy castles and playground for kids to run across as parents pick up some goods to bring back home. Ferme Mathieu Lavoie's shop is regularly stocked up with a lot of products they've made and from other local producers, so stock up while you're there.
