Charlevoix and Saguenay

Mountain seascape

Ah, the Charlevoix! Cycling in this region is bound to be an extraordinary experience. If you love vertical drops, the 128 km challenge through the Grands-Jardins National Park is made for you! A memorable day combining sustained exertion and beautiful scenery. Your two-wheel journey continues through the vast Saguenay region, where a well-deserved break awaits in La Baie. You then head toward Saint-Siméon, a true marine paradise, and then back to Baie-Saint-Paul, capping off a demanding but oh so stimulating adventure!
