Cross-Québec trip (Montréal-Gaspé)

Québec in all its splendour

Taking part in a cross-Québec bike tour is embarking on a bigger than life adventure spanning 1,250 km across the picturesque landscapes of the Belle Province. Departing from Montréal, head to Québec City via the south shore. Your cycling journey continues its course alongside the St. Lawrence Seaway winding its way to Baie-Comeau, after taking in the absolutely stunning vistas of Charlevoix with a well-deserved break in Tadoussac. For the second portion of the ride, head to Matane and the awe-inspiring region of Gaspé via Baie des Chaleurs, with Gaspé as your final stop. 17 days to discover Québec like you’ve never seen it before!
