  • The Languedoc region is not only the oldest and largest wine-growing area in the world, but it is also one of the most historically interesting regions in Europe. Of 37 “Grand sites de France” areas protected for their natural beauty or historical significance, 10 are located in Languedoc. With a multitude of interesting routes that are very “doable” by your average cyclist, we firmly believe the best way to explore this magnificent region is on two wheels. The area abounds with quiet back roads that wind through the rolling countryside filled with vineyards and olive groves. There are challenging climbs, and rewarding vistas, in the Parc Naturel de Haut Languedoc, while the Mediterranean provides more leisurely pedalling and coastline views.
    On this fully guided tour, you will not only have a chance to explore some of the beautiful countryside that Languedoc has to offer, but you will also be introduced to some of the small regional winemakers and fine food producers that you might not encounter otherwise. This fully guided cycling tour will delight your palate as well as your eyes with a focus on fine food and wine experiences. On this tour, you will:
    • Enjoy the views as you cycle amongst the olive groves and vineyards
    • Stop for wine tastings at independent local vineyards hosted by the winemakers themselves
