La Petite Aventure Desjardins

The fun of taking it easy 

The classic biking vacation is back! As always, the Petite Aventure* means going at your own pace, as spring turns to summer and temperatures rise. It means sharing enjoyable moments with family and friends. It means taking the time to play, taste, discuss, dream… and experience the unforgettable! For its 25th season, the Petite Aventure takes place mainly on the Estriade and the Montérégiade, two magnificent stretches of the Route Verte provincial network.
For three days, in the heart of one of the loveliest regions of Québec, you bike leisurely through the countryside between Cowansville, Farnham and the magnificent Yamaska National Park. And spending two nights in Granby will give you lots of time to organize your days and explore the region. Benefit from flexible professional supervision, forget the daily routine and get into vacation mode. Starting July 1, the Petit Aventure offers you the fun of taking it easy!

*The event will take place in accordance with the health measures in effect at that time.
