A self-guided tour of Reims and Epernay with a little added fizz
+33 (0)3 80 26 17 12
5 days / 4 nights
€620 per person
Champagne – the name conjures images of effervescent golden liquid, sparkling in an elegant flute, toasting a celebration – and also the rolling countryside in France where this fabulous drink is produced. This leisurely self-guided exploration of the Champagne region will reward you with beautiful, charming villages, chalk hillsides covered in pinot noir, pinot Meunier and chardonnay vines; and of course the opportunity to meet the families who create the world’s most famous tipple. Champagne also holds some surprises: medieval churches, the Gothic cathedral of Reims, and a lighthouse, hundreds of kilometres from the sea, built as a publicity stunt in 1909. The price of this tour includes 4 nights in charming B&Bs or 3* hotels, daily luggage transfers, a detailed roadbook with tourist information and a map (there is a permanent helpline for any problems), and a guided tour and Champagne tasting sessions at a renowned Champagne house.

This short self-guided bike tour between Reims and Epernay is ideal for long weekend getaways or side trips from Paris. It takes you across the Champagne wine region, where you can marvel at the vines stretching as far as the eye can see. Bike up and down the hills of Montagne de Reims and Côte des Blancs, stop for tastings in the Champagne houses and admire the architecture of Reims cathedral and Avenue de Champagne in Epernay. See the famous insignia of Moët-et-Chandon, Veuve-Clicquot, Dom Pérignon not on a label but on milestones at the edge of the road as you discover the area at your own place. In terms of cycle tourism, the Champagne region is still relatively undiscovered compared to the Loire, Provence, Burgundy or Bordeaux, so this is still a surprisingly 'off the beaten track' destination. The price of this tour includes bike hire, panniers, luggage transfers, detailed itinerary documents and accommodation. Electric bike option available.
