 9 days 


This 8-night cycling holiday explores the heart of Franche Comté between the Doubs valley at Besancon and the folded mountains of the high Jura close to the Swiss border. It's exhilarating cycling through sun-dappled oak forests, terraces of swaying vines and beside lazy meandering rivers to discover honey-colored villages interspersed with traditional farming communities continuing as they have for centuries. Away from the towns, there is very little traffic, and you're more likely to come across herons and wild deer than you are fellow cyclists!For an unknown region, it boasts a remarkably rich cultural heritage, and your route includes three UNESCO-listed sites: the magnificent Citadel in Besancon, the unique Saline Royale built by royal decree in 1773 in Arc-et-Senans, and the awesome C13 underground salt galleries in Salins-les-Bains...
