You'll be met by your professional cycling guide on the pier for a short walk to the cycle shop where you'll be fitted with a bicycle and helmet and given a bottle of water. Following a brief safety demonstration, you and your guide will begin the approximately eight mile and 1 1/2 hour bicycle ride to Montmorency Falls. First pass the Quebec Yacht Harbor and the industrial grain elevators before crossing the St. Charles River. The cycle path now continues on a parallel course along the St. Lawrence River from where you can enjoy spectacular views of the skyline of Quebec and the Island of Orleans. Upon arrival at Montmorency Falls, board an aerial tram for the ride to the top of the falls to enjoy the breathtaking views and see the powerful forces of nature, as the water of the Montmorency River roars down the 272-foot (83 meter) cliff to eventually meet with the St. Lawrence River. After a brief stop for photos and some free time to walk the path along the falls, you'll ride the tram back to the bottom of the falls and cycle back to your ship.
Need to Know:
Note: The ride to the falls is over flat, even roads and bicycle paths. The approximate distance is 15.5 miles (25 kilometers). Participants must be at least 10 years of age and in good physical condition.
