A week of great wine, excellent food and even better cycling in Burgundy - what could be better than a fully guided bike tour through the sleepy countryside of central France?
Burgundy (or Bourgogne in French) is a land full of splendid vineyards and subsequently produces some of the best wines in the country, noted for its rich selection of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. It also has a wealth of history, being the birthplace of both the Benedictine and Cisterian orders.
The route for this Burgundy bike tour is gentle and scenic, avoiding both tricky terrain and populated main roads. Staying at a variety of predominantly three star hotels specialising in serving a high standard of French cuisine, each day’s cycling routes are peppered with stopping points in which you’ll be able to sample the region’s famous produce. The landscape of Burgundy is characterized by a myriad of canals and unmarked trails, often making an effective cycling tour of the country very difficult to plan at best. The guides have already put in all of the ground work so you don’t have to – simply get comfortable on the saddle and enjoy a back road tour of the best cycling in Burgundy.
If you appreciate good glass wine and picturesque country, then you won’t be disappointed with this Burgundy bike tour. Fitness requirements are at a minimum since the terrain is very gentle, and you don’t have to worry about your luggage since it will be transported for you. Wine tasting is very much a highlight of this Burgundy cycling holiday, so it will be less suitable for those with an aversion to wine or those with young children, but older families will definitely have a blast. The maximum group size is 15, usually consisting of a mix of singles and couples.
