Bike Tours in Québec City

Going on a guided bike tour not only gives you a sense of freedom and accomplishment, it’s also a great way to explore beyond the city centre and cover more ground than you would on foot. Below, you’ll find all the options for guided bike tours in and around Québec City. 

Bike Tours in Old Québec

A guided bike tour can be an amazing experience. Little hidden streets pop up and sweeping scenery unfurls as you pedal by. From the Old Port, you can explore Old Québec on two wheels with a classic tour that takes you along the city’s winding, historic streets. 

Note that if the tour takes you to the Upper Town, you’ll need good cardio and good calves to get you up those hills. Pro tip: consider renting an e‑bike to help you tackle the ascents. 

Cyclo Services and Location Écho Sports both offer guided bike tours in Old Québec. 

Bike Tours to Montmorency Falls

If you’d like to go a little further afield, you can take a guided bike tour to stunning Montmorency Falls. The 25 km return trip is relatively flat and the beauty of the scenery makes it well worth the effort. This route really delivers bang for your cycling buck and your calves will thank you for the workout!

Bike Tours on Île d’Orléans

To feel the breeze from the St. Lawrence River, a bike tour around Île d’Orléans is the way to go. But don’t wear yourself out: rent an e‑bike from Québec Aventure Tours and take time to enjoy the scenery and stop in for a tasting at some of the island’s many artisanal shops. Even if you opt for the short loop, you’ll get to learn more about the island and discover a few of its star producers. 

Mountain Bike Tours at Jacques-Cartier National Park

For outdoorsy types, there are guided mountain biking tours in Jacques‑Cartier National Park, a vast forest playground where you can try remote trails with an experienced guide from Quatre Natures. You’ll even get a picturesque picnic at the end of the session as a reward for all that hard work. Participants must be age 14 or older. 

Self-Guided Bike Tours

Rent a bike and head out on your own to explore the many bike paths in the city and surrounding area, free as a bird. Of course, you’ll want to rent the right accessories and get tips on the best places to ride from the experts at Cyclo Services and Location Écho Sports.  

You can also rent a bike from àVélo, a new bike‑sharing service with some hundred e‑bikes that are yours to rent at ten different stations in Old Québec and the surrounding neighbourhoods. Helmets are mandatory, so be sure to have one with you. 

Bike Tours in Winter (Fat Biking)

In winter, why not try a fat bike tour from Tuque et bicycle expériences? Tours start in Lower Town and take you on lovely park trails along the St. Charles River all the way to Québec City’s Grant Marché. The paths are flat and the tour is geared toward beginner riders.
