Over hill and dale in the Townships

Famous for its magnificent landscapes, the Eastern Townships are full of picturesque villages and bucolic roads, punctuated by a few strenuous uphill climbs that are rewarded by breathtaking panoramic views. From Farnham, in Brome-Missisquoi, your route allows you to explore the regions of Memphrémagog, Granit and Sherbrooke, and navigate between Mont Brome, Mont Orford, Owl’s Head, Mont Hereford and Mont Bellevue. And to round out your stay in the lush green Townships, you can visit a local vineyard or spend a magical evening in Foresta Lumina, in Parc de la Gorge de Coaticook!


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
