Thousand Islands En liberté

As beautiful as it is blue

Whether you are in the Bay of Quinte region, which includes Prince Edward County wine country, or on the Loyalist Parkway (highway 33), the blue waters of Lake Ontario, and then the mighty St. Lawrence, are constantly in view. As you pedal between Picton and Morrisburg, the river’s archipelago of islands - ranging from the massive Wolfe to tiny one-tree islets - can be seen in all their splendour! This corner of the world is definitely a wonder of nature… as beautiful as it is blue.

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.
