Bike and Barge the Seine Plus! Castles of the Loire is a level 1 tour, ideal for beginner cyclists, those traveling by bicycle for the first time, or multi-generational groups with a desire for a nice and easy bike tour with plenty of opportunities to stop and enjoy the scenery. For those who want more miles, we can also add extra rides in.
This 8-day bike and barge cruise takes you along the Seine River Valley, passing by splendid estates including the castle and grounds at Fontainebleau, and through small medieval towns on the way to Montargis. After kicking off our first day in the city of lights, Paris, your bicycle (and barge) will lead you through beautiful sights and calm bike paths along the river. You will even dine in a private castle as you taste France’s famed cuisine! Enjoy this scenic ride along the Seine, with frequent stops to sip café au lait in quaint French villages. This tour is ideal for anyone who loves the French joie de vivre, and those who are new to cycling and want to test out traveling by bike without having to pack and unpack their bags every day.
