5000 km de la Route verte

The Route verte puts all of Quebec within reach of your handlebars!

Made up of over 5,000 km of bikeways criss-crossing the most beautiful regions of Quebec, the Route verte puts you on the right track for the vacation of your dreams. No matter which bikeway you cycle on—the Parcours des Anses in Lévis, the Véloroute des Bleuets encircling Lac Saint-Jean, the Berri Street bike path in Montreal or the Estriade in the Eastern Townships—you’re riding on the Route verte.

This vast bicycle route—the most extensive in North America—includes all types of bikeways: bike paths, designated shared roadways and paved shoulders.

With its long history of tourism, the Gaspé Peninsula is one of the oldest vacation destinations in Québec. Home to fishing, sailing, misty mornings and steep cliffs, the Gaspé is synonymous with the call of the sea, coastal villages, magnificent landscapes and wave-chiselled coves. Given its Acadian and French roots and famous attractions such as Forillon National Park, Percé Rock and the prehistoric treasures of Miguasha National Park—a World Heritage Site—the Gaspé is featured prominently in both the Michelin and National Geographic travel guides.

Some parts of the Gaspé—for example, amidst the high summits surrounding the Matapedia Valley and other locations near the Route verte—are also ideal places to cycle, offering enjoyable climbs that are invariably rewarded by moments of panoramic splendour. But the very best section of the Route verte follows Route 132 through the southern portion of the peninsula, home to Chaleur Bay, officially recognized as one the most beautiful bays in the world. The Gaspé circuit remains a classic destination for touring cyclists in it for the long haul.
