EXPLORE QUÉBEC ON THE ROAD PACKAGES
Benefit from a 25% discount on the pre-tax price, thanks to the financial support of Tourisme Québec. The price shown includes this discount. This promotion applies only to Québec residents (upon presentation of proof of residency).

From La Pocatière, gateway to the Lower St. Lawrence, you will pedal to Saint-Pacôme – one of the most beautiful villages in Québec, and then to Kamouraska, renowned for its magnificent landscapes. After Saint-André, you will follow the shoreline to Notre-Dame-du-Portage and be able to appreciate the full scope of the river, which becomes tidal once it reaches Rivière-du-Loup. You will be captivated by the church, museum and cheese plant of Trois-Pistoles, as well as by the natural beauty of the Bic National Park, which you will pass through on your way to Rimouski. Breathtaking route, gourmet lunch stops and the emptying of the St. Lawrence into the Atlantic… a winning recipe for a wonderful vacation!


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.
