Cycling the Vineyards of Burgundy: Self-Guided

The rolling countryside of Burgundy, crisscrossed with dedicated cycle paths through extensive vineyards and alongside canals make for an ideal and relaxed self-guided itinerary. Pretty villages break up the route and grand chateaux, with colourful tiled roofs, stand guard over their carefully nurtured and valuable grapes. Burgundy is one of the premier wine producing regions of the world, so if the cycling alone isn’t enough to tempt you, then perhaps a glass of the finest Pinot Noir or Chardonnay is? Dijon and Beaune complete this trip with their timeless charm, impressive architecture and choice of exceptional restaurants. 7 nights accommodation, 6 days cycling, (including 2 optional rides) with luggage transfers (95% quiet tarmac roads, 5% tracks and towpaths, undulating route, but distances are short), daily breakfast, route notes and maps and local bike hire
