4 days
Site savings
$2,296 USD

This fabulous four-day weekend bike trip begins on the shores of Lake Champlain in Burlington, Vermont and continues north to Montréal, where it concludes with the famed Tour de L’Île — a 35-mile ride on a cordoned-off route through the streets of Montréal. The trip follows the Island Line Trail north from Burlington to the Lake Champlain Islands. This former rail line is a (mostly) paved trail that follows the Lake Champlain shoreline north to a bike ferry that carries cyclists across a narrow gap in the trail to the Islands. Take a rest at Vermont’s first vineyard and winery for a picnic lunch hosted by your tour leaders. Later enjoy an opening reception and dinner overlooking Lake Champlain to kick off the fun.
