Bordeaux Grand Cru

Day 1 - Arrival in PauillacThe tour starts in Pauillac in the heart of the Haut-Médoc, the most important wine region of the Bordeaux region.Day 2 - Roundtrip 14 km and Pauillac to Margaux - 33 kmOn the first cycling day you make a tour to the châteaux of three of the five Premier Crus: Mouton Rotschild, Lafite-Rothschild and Latour. These wines are considered to be one of the best wines in the world since 1855. Then you cycle through the vineyards of many Grand Crus Classés du Médoc to Margaux. This small village is known by every wine lover.Day 3 - Margaux to Bourg or Virsac - 31 or 43 kmThe next day you cycle to Lamarque where you take the boat across the wide estuary of the Gironde to Blaye. The Blaye citadel, rebuilt by Vauban, stands majestically above the river. On the right bank of the Gironde you cycle through the Côtes de Blaye and Côtes de Bourg wine regions.

Via the Route de la Corniche, a narrow road between high cliffs and the Gironde, you cycle to Bourg-sur-Gironde. Due to its strategic location at the point where the Dordogne and Garonne meet in the Gironde, the pretty village of Bourg has played an important role in local history for centuries. You will stay here in a castle or in a castle further down in Virsac.
Dag 4 - Bourg or Virsac to Saint-Émilion - 41 or 53 kmOn the third cycling day you will drive through the renowned vineyards of Fronsac, Pomerol (Pétrus) and Saint-Émilion. Just like on the other cycling days, you will pass many mansions. The route ends with a short climb to the hillside of Saint-Émilion, a place of pilgrimage for many wine lovers. The land here is so suitable for winemaking that the vineyards extend to the city walls.Day 5 - Day off or tour from Saint-Émilion - 16 or 34 kmThis day you have plenty of time to visit this well-preserved medieval town and enjoy the Premiers Crus Classés. You can also take a tour through the area where wine has been cultivated since the 3rd century. The city and the surrounding area are on the UNESCO World Heritage List because of the wine landscape and historical monuments.
Day 6 - Saint-Émilion to Bordeaux - 54 kmOn the last cycling day you cross the Dordogne at Branne and follow a cycle path for 30 kilometers along a former railway track through the beautiful landscape of the white wine region of Entre-deux-Mers. In the village of La Sauve you can visit the Sauve-Majeure abbey (11th century). You can reach the port and wine town of Bordeaux on a cycle path along the Garonne. Your hotel is located in the middle of the 18th century center. It is rightly said that after Paris, Bordeaux is the most beautiful city in France, but much more compact, so that you can explore the city on foot.Day 7 - Departure
