Take a cycling trip from Montargis to Paris, riding on quiet roads and through a rolling landscape. This tour blends the history, poetry, and natural beauty of France's greatest city and its most idyllic countryside. We find traces of the Gallo-Roman era and the famous Château Fontainbleu, as we follow the steps of Joan d’Arc through the beautiful countryside that inspired the impressionist painters. On this stunning French cycling tour, you'll discover a land of forests, legends, medieval castles, and flower-filled canals in a voyage leading to Paris.
The average distance travelled through the French countryside is approximately 25/30 miles a day. The route follows asphalted secondary roads and field paths every now and then. There are some hilly stretches along the way which you can also walk if you'd prefer to take in the sights. You will ride through France's forest landscapes, following rivers' journeys through the landscape, and you will cycle alongside tranquil canals with their many locks and (former) lock-keepers houses.
The area of France between Paris and Montargis is famous for its easy pace of life and its friendly people. It has a rich history and is well-known for its excellent cider and cheeses. On this Paris to Montargis bike tour, we will explore historic towns, castles and villages and you’ll enjoy excellent food and wines both on board and in cozy towns along the way.
Each night, our experienced cycling guide will offer a briefing after dinner, explaining the route you will take in the coming day. In the evenings, you will be able to take walking tours of the cities and towns you stop off at along the way.
