Taking a walking holiday or cycling in France should be a must-do activity for anyone with a love of beautiful scenery, breath-taking landscapes and of course great food and wine. Our specially selected cycling and walking holidays in France are suitable for all abilities and almost all ages, with people from across Europe increasingly choosing this type of vacation for their family holidays. France is easily the most visited destination by tourists from the UK and it’s easy to see why the country has everything from snowy peaks to spectacular coastlines to rural villages that seem to come from another age. The food and wine that France produces are second to none. From crusty baguettes that create hunger pangs as you past village bakeries to the delicious (and sometimes pungent) famous Camembert cheese, this country possesses an abundance of edibles to ignite the taste buds. For all those wine lovers out there, France is without equal. A number of our tours include visits to vineyards where you can sample the best red wine, white wine and Champagne at their place of origin.
We facilitate self-guided cycle tours throughout the country in locations such as the Loire Valley, the Dordogne Valley, Lot Valley, Gironde, Provence, Alsace, Burgundy, Camargue, Brittany, Normandy and even the rugged Isle of Corsica.
Whether you’re new to hiking holidays or you’re quite a seasoned hiker, you’re sure to find a walking holiday that suits your degree of experience and also excites you with regard to the amazing scenery you’ll hike through, the places you’ll visit, the experiences you’ll accumulate, and the activities you’ll partake in along the way.
You don’t have to be a gastronome or an oenophile to recognise that French food and wine truly is second to none. For the oenophile within us all, the wine-producing regions of France are without equal, with Alsace, Bordeaux, Provence, Burgundy and Loire among the many notable regions that you can visit on self-guided cycling or walking tour of France with Hooked on Cycling and Walking. When you embark upon one of our specially developed holidays in France, you’re setting off on a journey of discovery, one to delight all your senses, especially your sense of taste.
You can probably tell by now that not only are we Hooked on Cycling we are also hooked on France!
