Description

Come and uncover France’s hidden facets with a tour in Alsace! A slice of two cultures, this populated French region has a strong Germanic influence. Tucked away in the western banks of the Rhine River, Alsace is complemented with views of the Vosges Mountains. Despite being small in size, Alsace takes pride in its individual charm: old fashioned Aleman houses, rich gastronomy, sprightly annual festivities, and a fusion of two cultures that created its distinction.

Sharing borders with Germany and Switzerland, Alsace has a wide variety of landscapes for you to soak up. The bustling metropolis may be among the most crowded areas in France, but off-road pathways create a quiet sanctuary for bikers. Wheeling through Alsace is like stepping into a pop-out story book, where rolling hills, green grasslands and blue skies pervade the area, especially in summer. The continental climate produces a crisp, fragrant air, inviting you to start your own adventures on one of the region’s many roads.

This bike tour gives you a fresh take on Alsace, where you will be led into the tree-covered Vosges Mountains. Heading south, you can take a satisfying sip, or two, in some of the country's best wine villages. We recommend this tour for seasoned bike riders who are geared to face a number of climbing rides (averaging 1,700 meters/5,600 feet).
