Of all the cycling holidays in Europe, cycling holidays in France have to be some of the most popular and with the great range of tours available from HF Holidays it’s easy to see why. We offer both guided and self-guided cycling holidays across the country. Some of the most popular current choices include:
A Guided Bike and Boat Holiday in Loire Valley
At just £735 for 7 nights, based on two adults sharing, this cruise and cycle, along one of Frances longest rivers, is a great way to take in the French countryside. The guided tour travels through a number of picturesque wine villages and past lush forests, with highlights including the Sancerre vineyards and the stunning Aprémont, a 12th century castle with beautiful gardens.
A Guided Bike and Boat Holiday in Burgundy
Another great mix of French waterways and cycling trails; this 7 night long £699 tour follows alongside the Canal of Burgundy and the famous Saône River. Running through the regions rolling landscape, a landscape dotted with impressive castles and ancient monasteries, the trail will take you through the very heart of this famous wine region. The tour through the region also provides a great opportunity to taste some of its famous wines.
A self-guided Cycling holiday in Historic Dordogne
Finally we have a great 7 night self-guided tour for just £715, based on two adults sharing, which follows the meandering Dordogne.
