In the North East of France lies the iconic Champagne region. With a rich history dating back to the Carolingians, there is a wealth of things to do, see, and taste.
Our Champagne cycling tours will take you to grand cathedral cities and charming canal-side towns, nestled between vineyards producing some of the most famous wine in France. Epernay, Reims, and Châlons-en-Champagne are the most lively towns in the region, so a visit is made to all of them on our cycling holidays in Champagne, via a network of country roads and cycle paths.
The wine here has seen continuous innovation since the Middle Ages, with wine houses dating back generations in a family. A Champagne cycling holiday would not be complete without experiencing one of these tours, tasting wine and exploring how it’s made.

The experience, the routes, the Champagne tasting, the people, and the place were simply the BEST! Loved our holiday and booking again.
We enjoyed the combination of an active day followed by Champagne tasting.
Routes on the app were great and very well planned out.
We all just loved the trip in its entirety. Champagne tastings on final legs (Collery at Ay will be rooted in my memory now forever), the greenness of Marne in spring and grand cru vines in every direction. Day 3 ( round trip) was stunningly beautiful.

The great thing about cycling in Champagne is the fact that it has both pan-flat canal-side paths and some lovely lanes through the rolling vineyards and hills, giving a wonderful variety to each day of cycling.
The region has a long history stretching back to the Roman times. Reims was even once known as the 'Coronation City' as every French king was coronated in the grand cathedral. You'll get the chance to cycle to this and many other historical sights on our Champagne cycling tours. The towns and villages you can stop by all have a rich story to tell. Near Châlons-en-Champagne is the historical Basilica of Notre Dame de l'Epine, where you can hear about the local folktales.
The region has many Champagne houses to explore. A feature distinct here are the Crayeres, chalk wine cellars where the bubbles are born. The most famous is at Ruinart in Reims, considered a national monument for its age and size. Many Champagne houses are well established, and at Geoffroy in Ay they've been perfecting wine across five generations. Wine lovers will enjoy the extensive tour at Joseph Perrier, where you'll discover the secrets of the golden fizz on your Champagne cycling tour.
