Cycling tour through the Eastern Townships of Quebec


Bike the quiet back roads of the Eastern Township region of Quebec on this cycling tour. This tour is seven days of hilly cycling through Québec’s lovely south, with luxurious lodging, outstanding cuisine and the prettiest forests and farmscapes in Central Canada.

The Eastern Townships of Québec combine the convenience of access from Montréal with the true pleasures of Québecois tradition and culture, and a largely anglophone culture. Outstanding cuisine is being discovered, and the quiet roads, charming towns and green pastures are a perfect canvas for this exquisite holiday. The flavours and luxuries will pervade your senses and lead you to a deep appreciation for the townships, known locally as L’Estrie.

Starting in the vineyard region near Dunham, you will ride through woods and villages past stone churches toward Sutton, and can stop for great bowls of café-au-lait and rich croissants at a fabulous bakery on the way. At L’Abbaye St-Benoît-du-Lac, you can try the cider and cheese made by monks in their picturesque lakeshore monastery. 

Circumnavigating Lac Memphremagog, you will enjoy splendid views on your way to a particularly luxurious final two nights, where the dinners are among the most highly rated in Canada.

Transfers back to Montréal or other connection points will be available on the final day. Be careful! Not only will this adventure spoil your palate for things more mundane, but the local joie-de-vivre easily rubs off on visitors, and is likely to send you to new heights of lively appreciation for all the Townships have to offer.
