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.

Whether you hug the shores of Lac Saint-Jean as you cycle around the Véloroute des Bleuets or embrace the majesty of the Saguenay River and the national park that shares its name, this doubly enchanting region never disappoints. On the one hand, dizzying fjord walls form a spectacular natural stone fortress; on the other, a veritable inland sea extends for more than 1,000 square kilometres in the heart of a region as big as Belgium! And that’s not all. The shores of the lake boast one of the most splendid beaches in Québec (Pointe-Taillon). As well, there is the floral splendour of the Grands Jardins de Normandin, the ancestral lands of the Montagnais of Mashteuiatsh, the ghost village of Val-Jalbert, a cave with a haunting name (the Trou de la Fée or “fairy hole”) and people who are every bit as friendly and fun-loving as they are reputed to be, just like their neighbours in the Saguenay.
