Tour de France Motorcycle Guided Tour
Day 1 Arrival in Tours
Pick up at train station in Tours, hôtel check-in and group briefing &Welcome dinner in old town Tours.
Day 2 Chinon - Uzerche
To start our trip we will follow the Vienne river and stop in L'Engle's Sur l’Anglin, a medieval village with lots of charms. Then we will enter the Limousin region and stop at Oradour Sur Glane, a place of memory. Here in 1944 the SS division «Das Reich» did massacre the entire village. The place has been left untouched for remembrance.
Day 3 Uzerche - Sarlat
Short mileage today but this is to give you more time to enjoy 2 of the most beautiful villages of France: Collonges la Rouge (the red city) and Turenne. Then following the river Dordogne you will arrive in Sarlat and enjoy its lively market and medieval old town. This is definitely the place to savor foie gras and the local gastronomy.
Day 4 Sarlat - Millau
As we go south the landscape will become drier: this is the Quercy region. This part of France is one of the most preserved in terms of traditions and villages. We will visit Figeac, the hometown of Champollion who discovers the Rosetta stone, and then in Conques a major stop of the Santiago trail. The Millau viaduct, the highest suspended bridge in the world will welcome us as we arrive in town.
Day 5 Millau (rest day)
Today is a rest day to give you some time to enjoy the pool or just ride around in the beautiful gorges of the Tarn rive or the Templars village of the Couvertoirade. There is so much to see and do around that one day won’t be enough. Be prepared to make some choices… This region is one of the most remote and inhabited in France.
Day 6 Millau - L'Isle sur la Sorgue
More gorges and corniche roads to leave the Cevennes region. We leave Languedoc and enter Provence with one of the most visited bridges and one of the oldest: the Pont du Gard. If time permits we might stop in Avignon and see the impressive palace of popes when Avignon was a papal city. Then we will stay in L’Isle Sur la Sorgue a city famous for its antics but also known as the Venice of Provence.
Day 7 L'Isle sur la Sorgue - Verdon
We will start the day by the mythic ascension of the Mont Ventoux from where the view is breathtaking. Then we’ll enjoy the savors of High Provence and Luberon. We will stop at Gordes a suspended village and at the french Colorado of Rustel once a mine of ocher. Then we will reach the famous gorges of Verdon where we will spend the night. Be prepared for an awesome sunset...
Day 8 Verdon - Vercors
To start the day we will ride in the Grand Canyon of the Verdon river, this will be one of the highlights of your trip! Then we will reach the Vercors mountain, once a high place of the French resistance in 1944 but before that, we will ride some of the most beautiful roads and gorges of the french southern Alps. One of the best memorable rides of the trip probably !
Day 9 Vercors - Le Puy en Velay
After a ride through the tunnels of the Grande Combe, we will leave the Vercors mountain for the Rhône valley and climb again the Massif Central on our way to Auvergne. The RN 102 that will take us there is a wonderful twisty road with impressive scenery. Then you will wander the medieval streets of Le Puy where the pilgrims,on their way to Santiago, start their journey. If you are courageous enough you may climb the stairs to the virgin.
Day 10 Le Puy en Velay - Le Mont Dore
Auvergne is considered a heaven for motorcyclists in France. Very little traffic and some awesome roads with wild landscapes. And on top of that a rich gastronomy. This day of the ride will take us through its highest summits and the day will end in an old spa resort facing the Puy Sancy summit where time has stopped: Le Mont Dore. Enjoy the quietness.
Day 11 Le Mont Dore - Tours
For our last day, we will leave the volcanoes of Auvergne for the Millevaches plateau, a remote land of marsh and forests. Everything has been left untouched for generations in this region. And then finally we will arrive in the Loire Valley to admire some of its most iconic castles: Chenonceau and Amboise. We will end this magical tour with a farewell dinner and celebrate french gastronomy.
