Tour de France Write a review
The Tour de France is considered the world's greatest road cycling race and we're here to help you experience it firsthand! Choose which part of the race you'd like to see and cycle some of the most beautiful roads in France. Test your mettle against challenging climbs in the Alps or Pyrenees or choose easier riding in a different region. The route changes every year so the time and place are up to you based on that year's itinerary. At various points during the week we'll intersect with the Pros as they ride by, usually on a climb or passing through a village so we can see them at a (relatively) slower pace. Enjoy great cycling but also experience the culture, cuisine, and joie de vivre that you find everywhere in beautiful France.
Tour de France itinerary
We have run more than ten Tour de France tours through the years, some of them geared to strong riders and others tailored to passionate race fans who wanted easier cycling. Some sample itineraries could include a Provence/Alps combination, a southern France adventure that starts in Toulouse and goes into the Pyrenees, a more culture-themed trip from Carcassonne through the Languedoc region into Provence and the Cote d'Azur, or any region that fits your dates and desires. We have taken groups from Alsace to the Auvergne to the Basque Country bordering Spain, so the choice is yours!
Activity Level: This trip is rated Challenging but can be tailored to easier levels if required. If we choose the final week of the tour -- almost always in the mountainous north of Italy -- the rides will include lots of uphill climbs and flying downhills, but we can also choose to see the tour in more gentle areas, or else just try and minimize the amount of climbing that we do. There will be full van support, so you can choose how much to ride each day. There may also be some walking involved as we make our way to see the riders on the climbs. The daily distances can as much as you want! (usually somewhere between 60 – 120 kms (40 – 80 miles).
Tour Cost Includes: All accommodations at comfortable 3-star hotels; 7 breakfasts and dinners; 2 bilingual guides to accompany you during the duration of the tour; support vehicle; and all luggage transfers.
