From Bergerac to Sarlat, this self-guided cycle tour will showcase the contrasting landscapes of the Périgord, from vineyards to the golden cliffs of the Vézère and Dordogne valleys. Start in Bergerac, a beautiful medieval city on the banks of the Dordogne River. Cycle along the river, then across the hills to reach charming villages that are typical of the Périgord, such as Trémolat and Limeuil. From here it's onto the Vézère Valley and its prehistoric sites. Enjoy a break day in Les Eyzies, where you can exchange your bike for a canoe to explore the Vézère River and its troglodyte sites, or hike around the village. Then, continue to Montignac and the world-famous Lascaux cave before cycling on to beautiful, medieval Sarlat. Finally, discover the famous castles of the Dordogne with a beautiful loop ride: châteaux de Beynac, Castelnaud and La Roque Gageac. You can again take to the water to see the castles from a different perspective. This is a complete bike trip combining cycling and canoeing. The price includes bike hire, accommodation, luggage transfers and all the maps and information you need to make the most of your trip.
