From cosmopolitan to quaint countryside

Worlds both old and new meet in Québec. From cosmopolitan Montréal to history-rich Québec City (by way of the Eastern Townships, a Loyalist enclave of beautiful woodland biking), you’ll sample Canada’s most European of provinces through its cheeses, wines, sparkling lakes and charming city streets. Its roads wind past old ancestral homes, covered bridges, historic churches and chapels. Rural antique shops abound, full of charming trinkets from the past and crafts by local artisans. Join us and learn why this pocket of North America is so special—a place where hockey, maple syrup, food and politics are religion (though not necessarily in that order).

Day by Day

Enjoy the highlights of Montréal with our very own local guide visiting the Mile End, Outremont and Plateau neighborhoods, and tasting the world’s best bagels on St-Viateur street. Later, ride along the famous Lachine Canal bike path and tour of the Old Port district.

Depart Montréal and drive to Bromont, a village reminiscent of New England with its quaint shops and Loyalist architecture. Bike beside Lac Brome towards Knowlton and enjoy lunch at the café of your choosing in the beautiful town of Sutton before riding south through the Missisquoi River Valley. Dinner at the hotel tonight will be prepared by Chef Roland Ménard, whose pan-roasted wild mushrooms were hailed by Travel + Leisure as a “standout.”

Bike to the south end of Lake Massawippi, first stopping in Compton, then farther down the lake to the village of Hatley boasting Victorian houses and artisan shops, while the tiny village of Massawippi is little more than a pretty wooden frame church and community centre dating back to the 1870s.

Drive to the peaceful hamlet of St-Antoine-de-Tilly, famous for its beautifully preserved town church and (who knew?) its gouda! Ride along the bucolic Chemin de la Fraicheur, where you’ll witness Québec’s agritourism first-hand. Later, walk through the historic Place Royale and the cobblestone streets of Le Petit Champlain.

Take a short drive to the historic Île d’Orléans, an island offering excellent flat riding with the chance to visit historic homesteads and gardens. Stop along your ride at artisan shops and former shipyards in the villages of Ste-Pétronille, St-Jean and St-Laurent-d’Orléans.

Take your time to enjoy one last stroll this morning along the bustling streets of Le Petit Champlain before heading off for your trip home. Anyone with extra time to spend in the area might also consider continuing up the St. Lawrence River for the spectacular whale-watching at the mouth of the Saguenay Fjord.

Adventure Tours Basics: Average walking distance per day

On average, a person has a step span of about 2.1 to 2.5 feet. That implies that it may take over 2, 000 steps to walk one mile, and 10, 000 steps will be approximately 5 miles. 1, 000 to 3,000 steps each day could be the only distance beaten by a sedentary person.
