A Three River Tour
Image supplied by Cycle The Dordogne
The Dordogne, Cele and Lot River Valleys
This tour includes three of the most beautiful river valleys in France. A cyclists dream. Beautiful scenery, quiet roads, fantastic lodgings. This tour offers so much.
Cycle alongside the first of the three rivers that you will come across on this tour, the River Dordogne. You head westwards, up river, to the beautiful village of Martel. Then cycle out of the Dordogne Valley and up to the stunning village of Rocamadour. Highlights along the way include Carennac and the "Gouffre de Padirac".
From Rocamadour it's across the stunning deserted countryside known as the Gramat Causse and then down to the delightful village of Cabrerets. Just outside of the village lies the "Grotte du Pech-Merle", famous for its wondrous prehistoric cave art.
The Célé Valley is less well known than other valleys to be found in the region, but it is spectacular, and the cycling and countryside is a dream. Figeac, your destination, is a bustling, engaging town with great charm. Leaving Figeac, you pass through the wonderful village of Cajarc, and ride on to the stunning village that is St-Cirq-Lapopie. Appearing to defy gravity, the village hangs high over the River Lot. A village that will never be forgotten!
Continuing along the Lot Valley, cycle through classic Quercy villages and beautiful countryside to the département's capital, Cahors. You will have time to explore Cahors and discover many of its delights, of which there are many. Your final day's cycling takes you out of the Lot Valley and back into the Bouriane and your final destination of Gourdon. Many lovely villages adorn the route and it's a wonderful ride to finish your tour.
