Quebec City Ride & Hike, Quebec, Canada

3 day cycling and walking tour


Québec City is the crown jewel of French Canada. It's pure Old World Europe, perched atop a cliff that swoops down to the St Lawrence River. Old Québec is the only walled city on the continent north of Texas. We've designed a walking tour of the city that takes you by all the interesting sights it has to offer. In addition you'll ride around l'Île d'Orléans on the first two days of this tour with a couple of optional days that will take you to some very interesting places. A ride around Île d'Orléans is a delightful way to discover the surrounding parishes at your leisure.The traditional Quebec countryside is preserved here in this, the cradle of New France. You can delight in the island’s plentiful (and flavourful) agricultural heritage nestled amid gorgeous scenery.
