- Discover the vineyards of the Medoc
- Enjoy plenty of swimming opportunities
- Relax in beautiful coastal towns
The Bordeaux region of France is ideal for a self-guided cycling holiday. The easy routes and relaxed pace allow plenty of time to explore the Medoc vineyards, wander the streets of the pretty seaside towns and relax on the vast sandy beaches. We begin cycling from the peaceful harbour town of Pauillac through the world famous wine growing chateaux of Margaux and Lamarque. After reaching the northern tip of the peninsula at Soulac-sur-Mer, we head south through marshland, dunes, pine forests and past the largest natural lake in France before completing the loop back to Pauillac.
What makes this trip responsible?
Cycling is a fantastic way to travel while minimising your impact on the environment. Pedalling under your own steam we help the economy of the small villages and communities that we pass through and we use a local operator who employs local staff and uses small, family run hotels.
Here at Exodus we feel the need to offer our clients an alternative to air travel within Europe and to destinations where taking the train can be a viable alternative to flying.
Working in cooperation with Rail Europe, our sales team will be happy to reserve your seats and tickets can be booked 3 months prior right up until the day of departure, subject to availability. Suggested train times and further information can be found within the Trip Notes.
