Cycling the Loire Valley
Bicycling through the Loire and Seine River Valleys
Considered the “Garden of France,” the Loire region is a historical, cultural and architectural land that carries you across the ages and into the cradle of the French Renaissance.
France’s Seine River and the Loire Valley form a remarkable nexus of historical and cultural significance that winds through the heart of the country. These iconic waterways have not only shaped the landscape but have also been instrumental in shaping the very essence of French history, art, and civilization.
The Loire Valley’s crown jewels are its magnificent châteaux, each a testament to the opulence of French nobility. Its riverside towns are steeped in medieval history and the Loire River itself, known as the “Royal River,” has witnessed the rise and fall of empires. Plus, its banks are lined with picturesque vineyards that produce some of the world’s finest wines.
As conduits of commerce, culture, and inspiration, the Seine River and the Loire Valley embody the essence of France’s historical and cultural legacy that you can feel best on a bike tour as you stop to explore towns, cafes and châteaux.
