Chaleur Bay-Percé En liberté

Exotic, welcoming and lively!

As you breath in the invigorating sea air and pedal toward the horizon, it doesn’t take long to start letting go and recharging your batteries. From Pointe-à-la-Croix to Percé via Miguasha National Park, you bike across Chaleur Bay at your own pace and in your own world. The gentle landscapes are enhanced by the charming cafes and artisan bakeries, the magnificent beaches, the fascinating birdlife of Bonaventure Island and the majesty of Percé Rock - the last stop on your trip.

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 and destination from our wide choice of itineraries
  • Travelling as a couple, with family or friends
