Cycling Holidays in Aquitaine
As a region offering diversity in its terrain and sights, Aquitaine is the perfect location for a cycling holiday. From coast to country, mountain to town, the charms of this region and the range of cycling routes accommodate all tastes and all abilities.
Explore the Atlantic coast
There’s nothing quite like taking a leisurely bike ride along the coast, with the sea air and the sights and sounds of everyday life proving invigorating for all cyclists. A journey along the Aquitaine coast, therefore, offers one of the finest cycle experiences in all of France, with everything required for a compelling ride. Heading south along the Atlantic coast offers far more than simple seascapes; this is a voyage – one of the longest coastal trails in Europe – that also passes through thick forests and bustling towns. With the opportunity to uncover the charms of the UNESCO World Heritage city of Bordeaux, there are few cycle trails with quite as much to offer.
Should the allure of the Bordeaux wineries be too tempting to resist, a ride through leafy vineyards is the perfect choice. Famous wine towns such as Pauillac, Margaux, and St Emilion each have a rich heritage and will provide ample opportunity to sample the wines produced, while the elegant, majestic architecture of Bordeaux and its fabulous wine houses will deliver a selection of rich and indulgent flavours to taste. With gentle paths leading from vineyard to vineyard, a cycling holiday in Aquitaine wine country is certain to prove unforgettable.
