Walking Holidays in Burgundy
Endless vineyards, pathways alonside winding rivers, and town streets filled with culture and tradition: a walking holiday in Burgundy provides a wealth of options for active holidaymakers. Thanks to its central-eastern setting and comprising the Cote-d’Or, Saone-et-Loire, Yonne, and Nievre districts, the region has enough captivating sights to ensure any walking tour offers adventure and appeal.
Châteaux and wine
Burgundy’s prestige is never more prevalent than among its vast expanse of vineyards and magnificent châteaux. Follow easy and moderate trails along tranquil lanes to experience a taste of traditional Burgundy, uncovering such fascinating towns as Dijon and Beaune, and exploring the majestic structures of Chateau de Varenne, Château d’Eguilly, and Château de Blancey.
Of course, the region's wineries enjoy international acclaim, and tracing the famous wine route established by Cistercian monks in the 14th century provides a valuable insight into the production of award-winning labels at some of the world’s finest appellations.
Charming town walks
The gentle hiking trails and vineyard routes of Burgundy are undoubtedly compelling, but the opportunity to uncover quaint countryside towns and cities is equally rewarding. The cobbled streets and enchanting architecture of Beaune, for example, offers the ideal setting in which to interact with local merchants and get a taste of the relaxed, Burgundian way of life.
