Itinerary 🗺️

Day 1: Alma to Dolbeau-Mistassini (100 km)

You will start your bike trip by leaving Alma. Heading towards Dolbeau, you will pass through the Pointe-Taillon National Park, and why not the Louis-Hémon Museum to learn more about the history of the region. Once you arrive at your destination, you can taste local flavors such as chocolate-covered blueberries or enjoy a good regional beer at the microbrewery Le Coureur des Bois before heading to your accommodation.

Day 2: Dolbeau-Mistassini to Roberval (90 km)

Pedal towards Roberval for your second day. Stop for a short break at a local cheese factory. Then, visit the Mashteuiatsh ilnu museum before ending the day by admiring the lake view from the Roberval marina. Enjoy the sunset before heading to your accommodation for the night, or continue your journey towards Chambord to visit the historic village of Val-Jalbert, where time seems to have stood still in the 1920s. You will also have the option to spend the night there.

Day 3: Roberval to Alma (63 km)

Begin your last day by following the shores of Métabetchouan. The good news is that you will be descending, so take advantage of the gravity-assisted ride to relax and appreciate the landscapes, as well as the weather if it's mild. Make as many stops as necessary to savor the good moments and enjoy the beaches to refresh yourself. Make a tasting stop at the Lac-Saint-Jean microbrewery and at the Médard cheese-bakery in Saint-Gédéon. To complete the tour around the lake, return to your starting point: our agency in Alma.
