Grab your bike and set out to explore breathtaking scenery and hidden corners of the region. Both invigorating and energizing, a bike ride will let you see the Laurentians at a new pace. Adventure awaits on the region’s two main trails, which are always gaining new converts.

The P’tit Train du Nord and the Aerobic Corridor

With a 232-km-long (144 mi.) trail stretching from Bois-des-Filion to Mont-Laurier, The P’tit Train du Nord is the longest linear park in Canada and certainly one of the most beautiful! Pedal along care-free on this circuit where you can stop as you please for a picnic, a closer look at the old train stations or a visit to a cultural or recreational tourist attraction in one of the villages you’ll be biking through.

Enjoy a special moment in nature when you cycle on the Aerobic Corridor Park, a 58-km-long (36 mi.) recreational circuit between Morin-Heights and Amherst. During your ride, you’ll come across wooded areas, lakes, waterways, lovely villages and many other natural treasures.

Nominingue: a destination for cycling tourism!

While you’re on the P’tit Train du Nord bike path, make plans to stop in the municipality of Nominingue: a slice of heaven dotted with 97 lakes that will charm you with untamed wilderness, great restaurants, welcoming inns and B&Bs and loads of outdoor activities.

Well-deserved rest in a refined inn

The bike path also takes you to Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts, where you can stay overnight at the Auberge de la Tour du Lac, a one-of-a-kind ancestral inn. It has a spa and a restaurant boasting an exquisite table d’hôte menu. Perfect for a boost of energy before getting back to your bike – although of course you don’t need to be a cyclist to go there!

Head up to Mont-Tremblant

With 20 road circuits and 65 km (40 mi.) of mountain trails, Mont Tremblant is the quintessential biking destination. Festive and dynamic, the area brings you the best of both worlds: wide-open spaces such as the Parc national du Mont-Tremblant and a lively atmosphere at the heart of the village with shops, restaurants and hotels.
