Right now, our priority is to make sure you have a pleasant and safe experience the next time you visit tourism businesses in Centre-du-Québec. Given that the establishments in our region will be reopening gradually, we’re asking that you communicate with these businesses directly to plan your trip. They can tell you their opening hours, the activities they’re offering and any sanitary guidelines they’ve implemented based on Public health instructions. We look forward to seeing you again very soon.

This route offers challenging hills for serious cyclists. The Sainte-Sophie-d’Halifax sector, a small village perched in the Appalachians, offers spectacular panoramas, especially in the fall. You can also see wind turbines on the mountain slopes. In Plessisville, stop at the Parc de la rivière Bourbon where you’ll find a walkway created by the sculptor Armand Vaillancourt, who was born in the region. In Princeville, relax at a rest area next to the cycling trail.
