Getaway for the whole family!

The gentle inclines of quiet roads in the Portneuf region make this an especially relaxing escapade. From Saint-Raymond to the Jacques-Cartier River, from the old Marcoux Mill to the charms of Pont-Rouge. A fantastic opportunity to cycle with family or friends!

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
