Tour Overview

Canada's Best Kept Biking Secret

Wine Spectator magazine refers to the Niagara Wine Country where our exclusive Niagara wine bicycle vacations 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.” Cycle a bike path to a lovely park that overlooks 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 on this Niagara bike tour. The Niagara region sits at latitude that is similar to that of France’s 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 Festival Theatre hosts critically lauded plays and draws audiences from around the globe to the charming town of Niagara-on-the-Lake. Shaded lanes leading to a lakeside park frame lovely homes, 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.
