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.

A vast, wide-open land of undisturbed beauty, the Manicouagan region is located in the heart of Québec. Crisscrossed by streams and rivers, abutted by the Saguenay-St. Lawrence Marine Park and peppered with scenic bays and villages, this is the ideal destination for anyone interested in exploring the heart and soul of Québec’s rich maritime heritage.

From Tadoussac, the gateway to the Côte-Nord region and a favourite port for whale-watching expeditions, the Route verte follows Route 172, on the left bank of the Saguenay River, winding through Sacré-Coeur and ambling alongside the beautiful Sainte-Marguerite River. If you’re up for a challenge, look no further! This stretch has one of the Route verte’s steepest slopes. But it’s worth the extra effort to be able to frolic alongside the planet’s largest mammals, delve into aboriginal culture and relish the rich tastes and textures of the bounty of the sea…just before you hit the Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean area and (why not?) continue cycling toward the Véloroute des Bleuets.
