Highlights
  • The beautiful Chablis district, Burgundy's northernmost wine region
  • Bike along the Route des Grands Crus to the famous town of Chassagne-Montrachet
  • Savor phenomenal cuisine paired with wonderful wines
  • Private cellar tour and tasting at acclaimed Maison Alex Gambal
  • Beaune, the vibrant capital of the Côte d'Or

There is a special flavor to this region in France. Yes, it’s in the wine, but it transcends everything. It’s in the gracious demeanor of the people. It’s in the friendly rolling hills and small villages that sit quietly among the vineyards. You feel the rich flavors of Burgundy as you pedal toward the multicolored Flemish-tiled roofs in Beaune. When you combine all these unique flavors, you quickly understand that the wine is only where Burgundy’s story begins.

This was our third Backroads trip. It was a 10 day bike trip on the south island of New Zealand. Amazing! Very well organized! Great guides! All the details are carefully taken care of! Even when the unexpected happened (an earthquake!), our guides had a bus replace the train trip that was cancelled (due to damage to the railroad tracks) and it was done quickly. I would recommend Backroads to all my active friends :)

I've taken two Backroads camping trips with my teenage son. It's our summer bonding time and has proved to be a better experience than I could have imagined. Highly recommended. Everything is done for you except riding the bikes! We've been to the San Juan Islands and Yellowstone/Tetons. This year, hopefully Alaska!

I recently had the most amazing experience on the Backroads Singles-Solos Wine Country to San Francisco Biking trip. I'm not a biker but everyone was supportive of each other regardless of experience level. The routes took us through some of the most beautiful roads in the Bay Area. My favorite part was the food as there were freshly-prepared meals three times a day. A+.
