Discover Bordeaux and its region by bike (6 bike tours) You can visit the selected vineyards (châteaux) and taste the wines on site or at the wine shop.
The MS Bordeaux takes you on a tour with a fresh start every day. During the day you explore the area by bike. During the day, the ship awaits you. Now, maybe a “Sundowner” on the terrace, then arrives the typically French evening menu, elaborated by the Chef. A complete bike and boat to discover the Bordeaux region of France.
The Cruise is a boat trip around the mouth of the Gironde in France, the canal along the Garonne, and the Dordogne, which flows along the heart of the most famous vineyards. The passage from effort to relaxation favors this particular recreation. The daily navigation offers exceptional panoramas and allows you to observe as closely as possible the famous “tidal bore”. Be the privileged spectators of this rare natural phenomenon: This wave sweeps over the river twice a day and disturbs the tranquility of the water, and surfers celebrate it every year.
At the confluence of culture and nature, combining sport, travel and adventure, fine wines and refined cuisine. This is a unique experience. The spirit of discovery, mastering the pleasure of encounters, effort, perseverance, mutual help, respect and kindness characterize this form of travel. Customers from all over the world and all age groups discover this form of travel with enthusiasm.
It is the first and only bike and boat that stays exclusively in France.
The daily bike tours are between 25 and 55 km, with the possibility of making visits more or less long. Visits are easy to moderate and if you are not at the best of your condition, you can choose an electric bike.
Every day promises surprises. Bordeaux, its historical sites, its landscapes, attractions and the meeting with the population offer a special experience. Visits of castles and vineyards, museums, historic buildings and playgrounds can be used to travel with children. We will show you what there is to discover, you decide where you stop.
And your hotel room moves with you. No need to make and unpack. Your boat will allow you to discover the vineyards by bike in the heart of more than 117 000 hectares, and to discover each day the different wineries. The paths pass through small villages typical of history and monuments, always worthy of a cultural break.
The historic heart of Bordeaux, the village of Saint-Emilion or the fortress of Blaye are local treasures that are inscribed on the list of world cultural heritage. Each of these architectural jewels is the subject of stops during the cruise.
