The route takes cyclists through a tapestry of storybook villages, canola fields and hedgerows of wild roses along a broad expanse of the St. Lawrence River. It’s once again accessible to Americans and other outsiders as long as they’re vaccinated and meet the other conditions for admission into Canada in the COVID era. (AP Photo/Calvin Woodward)
            One of Quebec's most cherished bicycling routes takes cyclists through vistas like this one, looking out on the islands and wide waters of the St. Lawrence River near the village of Kamouraska, Sept. 8, 2021. This maritime region of Quebec normally draws plenty of visitors from Europe, the U.S. and other parts of Canada, attracted by the bicycling, hiking, whale-watching and natural beauty. But it is only starting to open up to outsiders again, thanks to relaxed rules for entering Canada.

The maritime panoramas and bicycle-friendly roads of Quebec have been out of reach to Americans since the pandemic descended on the world. Canada is once again accessible to visitors from the U.S. and other countries, as long as they are vaccinated and follow other protocols for being admitted into the country.

Residents older than 12 must have the passport to be seated inside or on the patios of restaurants, bars, concert halls, outdoor events with more than 50 people, and most other public places that are not deemed essential. Outsiders do not need and cannot get the passport but must present vaccine proof as well as an ID showing a home address outside Québec.
