Loire Valley Cycle - 6 Day
The Loire River was once the highway between the Atlantic and the heart of France. Its valley was known as the 'playground of kings' - a neighbourhood of impressive chateaux and vast fortune. Travelling by bicycle is a great way to experience this world famous valley. While pedalling at a relaxed pace, you'll discover the best this region has to offer. There is ample time to soak up the medieval charm of Blois and discover picturesque Amboise overlooked by its impressive fortified chateau. The cycle takes you through countryside crisscrossed with vineyards, duck farms and orchards and the remnants of feudal hunting forests, and the many ornate estates you pass confirm the Loire Valley's reputation as the 'garden of France'.
