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 region of rounded summits, this vast area is studded with bustling villages, striking lakes and exclusive restaurants. All this makes it easy to see why the Laurentians are Montrealers’ favourite northern playground and a top resort destination for visitors from around the world all year-round.

The region is also a great place to cycle, with the 200-kilometre-long P’tit Train du Nord trail, one of the most beautiful touring routes in Québec. The adjacent Parc linéaire des Basses-Laurentides (18 kilometres) offers a flat, family-friendly route. The region is also famous for the Vagabonde, a 21-kilometre bucolic route winding through orchards and hills. Finally, the section near Saint-André-d’Argenteuil takes you through Île-aux-Chats and on toward Grenville.

des Transports du Québec, le gouvernement du Québec et des partenaires régionaux.
