Bordeaux Wine Region - Bike & Barge Adventure

September 27 - October 8, 2019 

Leader: Frank Peñaranda

The region of Bordeaux, located in sun drenched south-west France, is the perfect setting for a bike and boat tour. Set at the confluence of the Garonne River and the Gironde estuary, it is one of the most prolific and famous wine growing regions in the world. Caressed by Atlantic breezes, the vineyards that cover the rolling hills of the region have for centuries produced France’s most remarkable wines. Appellations such as Saint-Émilion, Pomerol, Sauternes, Médoc and Margaux have made Bordeaux wines world famous. 

But this is not just a wine/vineyards tour, it's also a close and personal experience with the cultural environment of this region, both walking and biking, At the region’s heart is the cultural center; the city of Bordeaux. Once known as the Sleeping Beauty, it stretches along the riverbanks, inviting visitors to savor its grand architecture, tempting cafés and superb museums. This city sleeps no more! Cruise the French Rivers and bike through vineyards on carefully chosen routes and experience the French Joie de Vivre! 

This is a very popular B&B Tour and despite the long lead-time, fills-up fast. The biking skills and effort are designed for even the novice. For all the details and to submit your reservation, please click on the following link to the Trip's Flyer
