Cycling holidays in France

Cycling holidays in France – panorama

In France, culture and a rich tradition of history vie with the wonderful countryside for your attention. Your cycling holiday is also garnished with the French cuisine and top wines. The wine and food is known internationally, not to forget the sparkling champagne that is produced here. During your cycling holiday in this country of gourmets, you won't just enjoy the bike tours but also the meals along the way.

Fairy-tale castles await you on the Loire. These dreamlike buildings, erected by their one-time masters, are simply beautiful. Be inspired by the towers, peaks and arcs glittering in the sunset. The simple rustic charm of the Loire valley is a perfect contrast to these magnificent buildings. The romantic cycling tour along the Loire has proved extremely popular among our guests for many years!

The south of France awaits your visit with purple fields of lavender, white horses and sleepy little villages that seem to have been suspended in time. Along the Canal du Midi through Provence and Camargue: a cycling holiday in the south of France is pure relaxation! On your bike you have the time to get to know the country and its people at your own pace. Cultural highlights such as the bridge in Avignon or the romantic Pont-du-Gard aqueduct are almost secondary to this absolutely stunning countryside.

A cycling holiday in France, devoted almost entirely to exquisite wines, can be had on our cycling tour through Burgundy. See the dense rows of knotty vines, heavily laden with grapes. Endearing villages with massive stone houses have watched over the vineyards for centuries. Venerable churches and monasteries set the cultural frame for a pleasurable cycling holiday through France.

The Rhône cycle path takes you from Lake Geneva to Lyon. Passing mighty mountain peaks, gentle hills and sunny vineyards, this cycling holiday follows surprisingly level ground past France's high mountains. Alsace is a more contemplative setting. In the small villages here, there are streets of timer-framed houses, and in between seemingly endless rows of vines. And where there is wine there are also further delicacies to be had: onion tarte, choucrute and hearty cheeses are the culinary highlights of this cycling holiday in the east of France.

Alongside the best-sellers and classic tours, we have a few surprises up our sleeve in France too. How about a holiday that takes you from one European metropolis to another? On a bike from Paris to London, you get to explore the hippest cities in Europe and the start and end to your holiday in France and England. In between is the breath-taking scenery of North France and South England.

Have fun finding your next cycling holiday in France! Be inspired and live life to the full on your next French holiday!
