Townships En Liberté: Orford

Taste of the good life at Mont-Orford National Park

Feel like a family cycling getaway? Bike along routes of 45 to 60 km and enjoy a pleasant stay in Jouvence, jewel of the Eastern Townships. Conveniently located at the edge of a lake in Mont-Orford National Park, this resort will be your home base. From here, you will be able to explore the charming heritage attractions of Lawrenceville and Warden, visit the Museum of Ingenuity J. Armand Bombardier in Valcourt and admire the magnificent natural settings of Eastman and Stukely. A stress-free weekend of cycling in a beautiful part of the country… Talk about the good life!  

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
