No bike? No problem! — Click here to ADD BICYCLE RENTAL (performance hybrid or e-bike)

Indulge yourself with this ride through the countryside just east of Ottawa. After a 45min transfer from downtown Ottawa, begin the day with a gentle cycle along the Prescott and Russell Recreational Trail – An old railway line converted to crushed gravel pathway. Before you know it, you’ll be arriving at Clos du Vully Winery, where we’ve curated a unique wine pairing experience with carefully-selected artisan delicacies. Hop back on your bicycle and enjoy a mix of winding country backroads and smooth, paved road shoulders. Stop for a tasty and educational honey tour (subject to reopening), then continue to the final stop at Domain Perrault Winery. You’re in for a real treat here, as you relax and linger with a table full of bread and cheese, plenty of wine, a lovely view, and a tour of the vineyard. At this point you’ll be pretty happy that you’re getting a ride back to Ottawa!
