Guadeloupe Islands in loops En liberté

Dreamy setting

Guadeloupe is a cycling paradise, with its dreamy setting, tropical sea climate, smooth asphalt and rich biking tradition, boasting 60 years of international cycling tours. This butterfly-shaped archipelago will undoubtedly give wings to your pedals! From Pointe-à-Pitre, you will bike along Île de Grande-Terre, a plain bordered by a mangrove to the southwest, where the popular Riviera is also found; then along hilly Île Marie-Galante, nicknamed “Grande Galette”; and lastly along mountainous Île de Basse-Terre, covered from north to south with a tropical forest and featuring an abundance of rivers and waterfalls, not to mention the majestic 1,467-metre Soufrière volcano.

En liberté formula: a more flexible adventure
Before your departure, as for our other formulas, we plan everything: transportation, accommodations, meals and, of course, our exclusive itineraries. Once at your destination, however, you have more freedom organizing your day.

The En liberté bike trip experience is designed for independent cyclists on the route. By opting for this formula, without a guide or relief vehicle, you will receive all the information you need to ensure that your trip goes smoothly, as well as the daily itineraries. The latter propose routes of interest around certain stopover cities, chosen for their offer of services and their accommodations. The En liberté formula - a different kind of adventure that still has the Vélo Québec Voyages touch.

Travelling En liberté means...
  • Being able to choose your departure date mainly between May and September;
  • Travelling as a couple or a family, with your work colleagues or your cycling club;
  • Relying on a Vélo Québec Voyages representative, if you are a group of 10 or more people. This representative will ensure the success of your trip and advise you on your route choices.
