- Cycle some of Normandy's best countryside and the Seine Valley
- Fascinating art, architecture and history
- Visit Claude Monet's garden in Giverny
Normandy is a melting pot of cultural and historical interest. Art, architecture, religion and history will all feature strongly as you journey from Honfleur to Vernon. Coupled with the beautiful Normandy countryside and Seine Valley, it makes for an ideal cycling destination.
We start with coastal cycling around the Seine estuary before heading into the Normandy countryside, here the cycling is idyllic, along country lanes, past thatched cottages and pretty village centres. The Seine river's winding banks will then guide our ride to Vernon.
The story of Impressionism will be told on our journey from Honfleur to Monet's house and gardens in Giverny. Here you will be able to take in the beautiful gardens that are so famously immortalised in his paintings.
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.
