Your cycling tour in Burgundy:

Discover Burgundy in idle mode. 5 stages by bike from Dijon to Chalon-sur Saône, in the midst of the vineyards. A new experience a day, a new viewpoint on these wonderful Burgundians sceneries. The pace of this trip will allow you to take advantage to the full of the stage cities, and to take your time to explore the treasures all around.

Day 1 : Arrival in Dijon


Enter in the city of the Dukes of Burgundy. Walk around in the historic city, filled with its built heritage: old houses with timber frames, “hotels particuliers” sometimes with glazed tiles roofs, so typical of Burgundy. And the Ducal palace which from now on is home to the Fine Arts Museum, and many more architectural interests.

Day 2 : Excursion in the Ouche's Valley | 48 km


Leave Dijon by Kir Lake and go back up the hills in the Burgundian countryside to Mâlain. Nice small town where the castle remains overlook the medieval village and its houses made in ocre stones. Go back down to the Ouche valley, and ride along the peaceful Burgundy Canal heading to Dijon.

Day 3 : Dijon – Beaune | 49 km


With this first itinerant stage you will enter the splendid landscapes of the ‘Côtes de Nuits’: vineyards for as far as the eye can see, typical Burgundian villages, little castles made in ocre stones. Famous vineyards of Burgundy will slowly parade before your eyes, while you will have to follow the bicycle paths: Gevrey-Chambertin, Vosne-Romanée, Vougeot, Nuits-Saint-Georges

OptionVisit of the chateau du Clos de Vougeot (Included in the "Châteaux Package")

Day 4 : Excursion 'Côte de Beaune' | 56 km


We invite you to leave the bicycle path for one stage, at the heart of Burgundy, you will follow the small country roads which will lead you off the beaten track. Then you will be right uphill in the ‘Côtes de Beaune’. The Castle of Rochepot is a must-see, you will be privileged, with a breathtaking view on the Valley.
