This year’s Petite Aventure Desjardins features an original route in French-speaking Ontario, through the United Counties of Prescott and Russell, located about an hour from Montréal. Leaving from Vankleek Hill, you will bike along the Ottawa River as far as the township of Plantagenet, where you will stay for two nights. This will give you total freedom to pedal around this lovely, peaceful farming region, with its friendly communities and abundance of local products. For a unique experience with family or friends, outstanding supervision and a bit of novelty, think Petite Aventure Desjardins in Ontario. As the province’s slogan goes: Yours to discover!
