Tour Overview

Canada's Best Kept Secret

Wine Spectator magazine refers to the Niagara Wine Country where our exclusive bicycle tours operate as "bucolic" and "charming". The region's wineries, and outstanding inns, and upscale restaurants provide the perfect opportunity to experience the region that made Canadian wine world renowned. Fall in love with Niagara-on-the-Lake, often referred to as the prettiest town in Canada. Ride a bike path to a lovely park overlooking the greatest waterfall in North America. Observe huge ships as they navigate the extensive lock system between Lakes Ontario and Erie. Tour one of the world’s top wine regions on bike paths and lightly traveled routes that are as relaxing as they are scenic.

Enjoy private wine tours and tastings at a variety of unique and highly regarded wineries. The Niagara region sits at a latitude similar to that of Burgundy, and the warming influence from Lake Ontario contributes to the cultivation of wine grapes. Icewine put the Niagara Wine Country on the map, and now their Bordeaux and Burgundian-styled wines are making their mark in the worldwide arena.

The internationally acclaimed Shaw Theatre draw audiences from around the globe to the charming town of Niagara-on-the-Lake. Lovely homes are framed by shaded lanes leading to a lakeside park, and the main street is lined with interesting shops and eateries. The region’s British influence, evident in local dialects and gorgeous gardens, dates to loyalists who fled north following the American Revolution. Learn more
