What to expect
Tour through neat vineyards and green valleys, celebrated the world over for their sparkling wines. Enjoy a leisurely four night tour, choosing an electric bike if you’d like an extra boost. The World Heritage architecture, Roman remains and art deco cafes of Reims make a spectacular start and finish to this circular tour, and the Champagne houses of Epernay are a highlight halfway through.
You’ll pedal through the rolling landscapes of Montagne de Reims National Park and cycle to the village of Hautvillers where Dom Pérignon pioneered his sparkling wine. Listen for the tinkle of bottles and pop of corks as you tour the region’s wine villages, descending into chalk-cave cellars to compare names such as Moet and Taittinger, to the Champagne produced by small scale winemakers – don’t miss out on the red Champagne.
