Embark on an exciting 6-day cycling adventure through the picturesque valleys and mountains surrounding Montreal in the lovely province of Quebec, following Le P’tit Train du Nord (Little Train of the North), a hidden gem in the heart of the Laurentians.

After the train ceased service in 1981, the old railway bed was converted into a multi-use trail for everyone to enjoy.
