Tour Overview

Vermont to Québec City Bike Tours

Cycle the beautiful lakeside city of Burlington, Vermont and Québec City — a city known for its history, beauty, and European air. Follow the shores of Lake Champlain, the Richelieu and the St. Lawrence Rivers, tracing Champlain’s voyage. Bilingual tour leaders will assist you with any language barriers in Canada’s only French-speaking province.

Follow sections of Québec’s famous La Route Verte bike route and the Chemin du Roy – which links Montreal and Québec City and is the oldest road in Canada. Explore historic Québec City with an engaging local guide and appreciate the magnificent old-world charm of the city’s architecture. Walk narrow streets lined with bistros and boutiques in classic European style in the Petit-Champlain, the oldest commercial district in North America. Visit historic sites like Place Royale – North America’s oldest commercial market. Immerse yourself in the culture and cuisine of this historic and pedestrian-friendly city.

Enjoy the final days of your trip relaxing and exploring the sites in Québec City, the most European of North American cities. Peruse artisan works in the rural oasis of Île d’Orléans, with works inspired by the island’s quiet, mystical nature. Your lodging at Le Saint Pierre, a lovely country inn in the heart of the Old Port, is the perfect base from which to explore. At the conclusion of the trip, you will be transported back to the airport in Burlington, Vermont. The pricing of this Quebec City bike trip reflects several accommodations that are less luxurious than typical Sojourn lodging.

Tour Itinerary

  • Day
    1

    Arrive at your leisure and make your way to downtown Burlington. Enjoy one of Burlington’s finest small hotels, sister properties nestled side by side between Lake Champlain and the Church Street Marketplace. Burlington has been voted as one of the best places to live by numerous magazines. Enjoy views across the sparkling waters of Lake Champlain to the Adirondack Mountains. Sunsets from Burlington’s waterfront rival any in the world.

  • Day
    2

    Meet your leaders and fellow guests following breakfast at the hotel this morning. Ride north out of Burlington on the Island Line. Enjoy a visit to Vermont’s first vineyard and winery for a tour, tasting, and picnic lunch. Follow lightly traveled roads along Lake Champlain to a beautiful lakeside setting where you will spend the evening.

  • Day
    3

    Head north through the patchwork farmland of the Champlain Islands to the Canadian border. The route is gently rolling to the border then flattens out almost immediately after passing through Canadian customs.

  • Day
    4

    Follow the Chambly Canal to Fort Chambly at the foot of the rapids on the Richelieu River. The route parallels the river through small towns clustered around architecturally imposing churches where it meets the mighty St. Lawrence.

  • Day
    5

    Begin your day with a ferry trip across the St. Lawrence. Ride the Chemin du Roy, the original route between Montréal and Québec City, and one of the oldest routes in North America. Spin past colorful barns painted in typical Québecois style.

  • Day
    6

    Ride along the north shore of the St. Lawrence through some of Québec’s most beautiful villages. Visit an organic fromagerie to sample local cheese. Enter Québec City on the stunning Promenade-Samuel-de-Champlain bike path.

  • Day
    7

    Enjoy a walking tour of Old Québec City with a spirited Québecois guide before exploring on your own. Visit the historic Place Royale and the narrow streets of Le Petit Champlain, walk to the Plains of Abraham, or relax in a café.

  • Day
    8

    Spin through the rural oasis of Île d’Orléans, an island in the expansive St. Lawrence River. Rolling farmland covers much of the island and roadside stands feature local wines, hard cider, berries and cheese. The island is also a haven for artists, many of whom welcome visitors to their studios.

  • Day
    9

    Following breakfast at the hotel, you will be transported back to the airport in Burlington, Vermont. Travel time is roughly four hours, however border-crossing times may vary.

" It was challenging, insightful, educational, and filled with new experiences! The group was terrific and as I have come to expect, the guides and experiences provided by Sojourn were top notch! "

Julie Baker

" In many ways, it exceeded expectations. The tour guides were exceptional. Their knowledge about the area made this much more than a bike trip. The other people in our group were, without exception, pleasant, positive, and flexible people. The scenery and learning about the history were outstanding. "

Margie Carpenter
