Lovely loop round the lake

Biking around Lac-Saint-Jean is an opportunity to discover a region of undeniable charm and rare beauty. Covering an area of 1,000 sq. km, this vast body of water leaves quite an impression. From Alma, you will follow a section of the Véloroute des Bleuets, crown jewel of the Route verte. In addition to admiring the lake from every angle, you will be able to appreciate its extraordinary natural setting, especially in Pointe-Taillon Park. You will also have time to enjoy the many local attractions and delicacies, such as the Saint-Félicien Zoo, the famous Perron cheese in Saint-Prime - and of course blueberries of every variation!
