Six nights; six days. Bicycle touring on paved, quiet country roads with rolling hills, breathtaking scenery, World Heritage sites, and France’s most amazing châteaux!

This stunning bicycle tour through the Loire Valley has it all: the finest examples of renaissance architecture, the rocky histories of the French monarchy and relaxing countryside riding filled with soaring sights, sumptuous smells and tantalizing tastes fit for royalty! Whether you want to cruise the river valley and enjoy the rolling hills or get lost in the labyrinth gardens and castle tapestries, there is truly something for all levels and tastes.

Beginning at the famous Château de Chambord, you will begin your journey through dense forests and rural country roads, along ancient river-banks and sculpted parks to the historic town of Blois, Joan of Arc’s base during her efforts against the British. From there you will follow the river through quaint farms and quiet vineyards to Amboise, a UNESCO world heritage site and home of da Vinci’s final dwelling place.

Wander the grounds of these amazingly rich areas, home to some of the most important historical figures. Smelling elaborate royal flower gardens, sitting in quiet, shaded cafes or watching workers tend 18th century castles, you will find yourself in awe with each new destination. You will cross the Valley East to West, hitting every major highlight along the way.

The cycling will be quite relaxed, but the van will support you the entire way if you’d like to just sit back and enjoy the scenery. The end of the trip will wind down away from the Loire River into France’s world-renowned rural cycling paradise. You will meander the quiet roads from village to village, visiting some of the most spectacular estates in the country. This trip’s colours, scents, and tastes enhance the sunshine magnificently, filling each day with the sensual pleasure that makes French exploring so rewarding.
