Bike trip of a thousand possibilities in the Bordeaux region

Exploring the Bordeaux region by bike means offering yourself a thousand possibilities for travel and discovery. From Bordeaux, you can take the direction you want: ocean, vineyards, castles, pine forests.... all these landscapes and atmospheres are available to you, all you have to do is choose!

Bordeaux is a very well equipped city for cycling where you can pedal from one bank to the other, stroll through the historic centre and discover the main tourist attractions.

From there,you can  easily get to the Arcachon basin by taking advantage of the cycle paths. In the kingdom of easy cycling, you can travel as a family in a dream setting, through the pine forests, along the coast or the lake shores.

If you feel like it, continue your journey towards the Médoc on small easy roads that run along the estuary to Soulac or meander through the vineyards. As the seasons change, you can admire amazing colour changes.

Cycling along the Dordogne, you can enjoy a wide variety of landscapes and reach Saint-Émilion. The roads are steeper but you will be rewarded with breathtaking cultural landscape.

Continue your journey in the Entre-deux-Mers, crossed by the Garonne river. Between vineyards and forests, you will ride on small roads or cycle paths: a little hilly in the north, but less so in the south.

Water, vines and forests are therefore characteristic of this beautiful region in which you can shine without any notable difficulties, although electric bicycles are not forbidden! The possibilities are endless and, like us, you will never tire of returning to it. And each time, we will build a unique journey together that will make you discover new wonders.

There is a good reason why Bordeaux is the French dream city. It has everything to please you: walks in magnificent parks or along the banks of the Garonne, countless alleys and squares to wander along, remarkable architecture... and this in whatever atmosphere suits you, lively or relaxed. It is also a cultural city that has recently become home to the famous Cité du Vin. To top it all off, Bordeaux benefits from an exceptional geographical location between vineyards and the ocean. An ideal starting point for your bike trip, all you have to do is choose the direction.

Treat yourself to a little piece of paradise in the Arcachon lake

Have you ever dreamed of escaping in an idyllic setting while staying in France? So welcome to the Arcachon Lake! About fifty kilometres from Bordeaux, imagine yourself in a dream setting between the ocean and the forest: fine sandy beaches, pine forests as far as the eye can see, houses on stilts, villages and oyster ports... everything for a change of scenery. Whether you prefer Cap Ferret, Arcachon or both, you will be amazed: the Pilat dune, the Ile aux Oiseaux, the lighthouse and the tip of Cap Ferret, the banc d'Arguin and many other natural wonders are to be discovered.

Take the castles of the Médoc route

Margaux, Saint-Estephe, Mouton-Rothschild... The Médoc is known worldwide for its prestigious vineyards. Don't worry, it's not just for experts! From small family estates to large listed estates, many castles have adapted their visit, including for children, around playful routes, aperitifs, walks... all animated by enthusiasts who will make you live a unique sensory experience. But the Médoc is also an exceptional natural reserve located between the Atlantic Ocean and the Gironde estuary. Lighthouses, small harbours, large lakes, endless beaches... you will inevitably find what you’re looking for and can do many family activities.

Continue your wine route to Saint-Émilion

Two thousand years of history between man and vine await you on the territory of Saint-Émilion, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This splendid landscape, entirely dedicated to viticulture, includes eight charming towns and villages, all ready to unveil their many historical treasures. In the heart of the medieval city of Saint-Émilion, you can take the time to ramble through the small alleys, visit the Cordeliers cloister, the King's tower, the catacombs, the Archbishops' palace, etc. Not to mention tasting a local wine if you feel like it!

Escape to the Bordeaux hinterland, the Entre-deux-Mers

Called "La Toscane girondine", the Entre-deux-Mers offers a calm and peaceful countryside, in the middle of hills and green landscapes. You can continue your wine-growing journey, this territory producing the full range of Bordeaux wines: red, dry white, sweet and syrupy, rosé and clairets wines. The Entre-deux-Mers is also a great place for art and history lovers. Many ancient villages reveal the masterpieces of Romanesque art through abbeys, bastides and countless churches, and you will be lost in admiration before the majestic castles, witnesses to the genius of the builders of the medieval age.
