Named one of the Top 50 Tours of a Lifetime by National Geographic! On this Bike Tour of France, we cycle along country lanes and discover that every trail reveals a fantastic scene from traditional France: timeless villages of golden stone, hilltop castles shining like visions from a medieval tale, and towering oak forests where a knight on a white horse might not look out of place. The full cultural immersion in this corner of France is facilitated by the amazing enchanting towns visited and included in the UNESCO World Heritage Site List, like Saint-Emilion in Bordeaux area and Albi and Carcassonne. Bergerac zone and Sarlat represent also another great surprise if you have never been in the area called “Perigord,” situated in the Dordogne Departement.
The list of activities range from two wine tastings, a canoe ride on the Dordogne river, a visit to the Museum of Toulouse Lautrec in Albi and the guided visits of Castelnaud Castle, prehistoric site of Cap Blanc in Dordogne and historic center and fortress of Carcassonne.
This bike tour of France has been beautifully tailored to peel back the layers of history, while savoring the gastronomy and the French life style in the southwest, also from the vantage point of our saddle to really feel immersed in the nature, looking for the right rhythm to enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime experience in this unforgettable corner of Europe.
