Itinerary 

Pick Up / Drop Off

Quebec, PQ (YQB)

Day 1- Transfer from Quebec Airport and hotels to L’Islet sur Mer

We’ll pick you up anywhere in the city and then drive to our inn, an 18th century water mill set in beautiful forest above the river. Our warm-up ride meanders along the rural roads of Quebec.

  • 16 or 35 miles
  • Meals: Dinner
  • First of 2 Nights at Auberge des Glacis

Day 2 – Historic Villages and the Seigneurie les Aulnaie

As we roll out of the inn, it’s time for an easy day of bicycling. Quebec’s country roads offer something to explore before joining the Route Verte to ride along the banks of the mighty inland sea. Stop and visit a charming maritime museum, lunch in the delightful Café Libellule and then take the tour of the Seigneurie grist mill and manor house.

  • 37 to 57 miles
  • Meals: Breakfast & Dinner
  • Final Night at Auberge des Glacis

Day 3 – Rolling on the River

As our Quebec Bike Tour continues, we leave our Auberge and follow some inland roads before descending to the river at La Pocatiere. We ride through Kamouraska, listed as one of the most beautiful villages in Quebec, and stop for a late afternoon microbrew on the deck of Brasserie Breughel. Then it’s on to St. Andre to our home for the next two days, the elegant La Sollailerie.

  • 25 to 57 miles
  • Meals: Breakfast & Dinner
  • First of 2 Nights at La Grand Voile

Day 4 – Bas St. Laurent

From the picturesque village of St. Andre we offer a number of ride options. If you enjoy bicycling Quebec on flatter and easier routes, take the Route Verte along the river through the bustling little city of Riviere du Loup. You can beat the prevailing winds and take a shuttle back to the inn. For a more challenging ride, climb into the mountains behind the town and ride forested roads and tracks before an exhilarating descent back to St. Andre.

  • 30 to 50 miles
  • Meals: Breakfast & Lunch & Dinner
  • Final Night at La Grand Voile

Day 5 – Velo Route La Chaudiere

After a morning transfer back towards Quebec City, we ride the bike route along the Chaudiere River. Picnic on divine Quebec cheeses beside a rushing waterfall before we ride on into the city following the Parcours des Anses, a two lane bike highway along the St. Laurent. We’ll take a ferry ride that brings us into the heart of Quebec.

Day 6 – Montmorency Falls and the Bike Paths

Today we ride out of the city to the spectacular Montmorency Falls. Here we can take a cable car or follow the trail across the top of the falls and learn some of the fascinating history. Take it easy and bike back to explore the city streets or join your guides for a guided biking tour of the extensive bike network that covers the city.

  • 25 to 35 miles
  • Meals: Breakfast & Lunch & Dinner
  • Final Night at Auberge Sainte Antoine

Day 7 – Quebec and the Champs de Battaile

We get up early for a morning ride through the streets of the old city and up onto the Plains of Abraham, site of the pivotal battle for supremacy in North America between the French and English in 1759. Our Quebec bike tour concludes with a trip back to the inn for another exquisite breakfast before returning home.

  • 15 miles

Customer Reviews 

  • Both leaders “made the trip”! From language to cycling to helping understand the history and geography…

  • Fantastic tour – highly recommend. My favorite part was biking on the country roads and seeing cows, horses, and different fields of wheat.

  • I really appreciate Norman’s low-key approach to this trip. Peter was extremely helpful with cycling advice, and also very knowledgeable about the area. Both guides were fun to talk to and did a fine job including us all.

  • Both Peter and Eduardo were phenomenal leaders, providing caring attention to our needs. This trip exceeded our expectations!
