Niagara En liberté

Cascades of fun

Your route offers a wide range of vacation pleasures. The pleasure of biking, of course, but also that of clearing your mind as you take in the vastness of Lake Erie and the beauty of its white sandy beaches. The pleasure also of visiting or revisiting the spectacular force of nature that is Niagara Falls. And then there is the pleasure of tasting the world renowned wines produced by the local vineyards, not to mention that of discovering this area’s rich history and heritage. There was a time when people travelled here just to get married. Today, all these pleasures give you even more reason to fall in love with the Niagara region!

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
