Although still in the early stages, spring is blooming in the Eastern Townships. As you wait for the snow to disappear completely, make the most of the coming weeks to plan your spring getaway. Biking and hiking are in the spotlight at this time of year, so you’re sure to be thrilled whether you travel on two wheels or two feet! Once you’ve spent the day doing exercise, why not take a moment to relax at the spa?

Biking in every way, shape and form

The Eastern Townships region is known as one of the best cycling destinations in Quebec. It’s no surprise then that the cycling options show so much variety. Feast your eyes on the beautiful scenery and quaint villages as you travel on a bike path or follow a biking circuit in the region. Were you hoping for more adrenalin? You’ll find what you need on the mountain biking trails. And if you find yourself in Sutton, consider trying VéloVolant, a one-of-a-kind activity in Canada where you pedal a suspended recumbent bicycle through the tops of the trees!
