Cycle through some of the world’s most prestigious vineyards and wine villages, pedalling past colourful landscapes and historic landmarks starting in the town of Beaune – the wine capital of Burgundy. With short daily distances and mostly flat terrain, mostly on the Voie Verte (Green Way) cycle path, this is one of our easiest cycle routes and is ideal for all levels. The leisurely pace gives you plenty of time to stop off for a long lunch, or work your way through the red vintages and crisp white wines during a cellar tour.

As you pass rocky outcrops and flowing rivers, stop off at chateaux to stroll around their magnificent gardens or take a peek inside at their grand interiors. You’ll stay in historic towns and stone-built villages en route, and relaxing with a bowl of beef bourguignon and a glass of Burgundy Pinot Noir or a chilled Chablis in the evenings is the ultimate way to unwind.
