Description

With over 2,000 kilometers of cycle routes winding through the region, over 15,000 hectares of vineyards, and the Vosges Mountains looming over pretty flowered villages, biking through Alsace is perfectly rewarding. Combining hard work and pleasure, this tour will introduce you to the traditions, hearty cuisine, and history of this unique French-German region, as well as the breathtaking climbs and picturesque landscapes afforded by its mountains.

Beginning and ending in Obernai, our 5 night/6 day itinerary is a veritable highlights reel, following two major routes: the Route des Crêtes (in the mountains) and the Route des Vins (in the valley). You’ll pedal up challenging passes such as the col du Grand Ballon and the col des Bagenelles, down into fairytale towns including Riquewihr and Colmar, and past the seemingly endless vines where renowned Riesling, Muscat and Gewürztraminer are produced. We can guarantee that the cycling, the villages, and the wines will stay with you long after your trip comes to an end.
