Overview

Highlights

  • Experience the Ride along the Saône River
  • Have a great opportunity to ride the Bike across valleys.
  • Discover France
  • See the Canal de Bourgogne and the magnificent Castle of Châteauneuf

Short Description

Should you float down the Danube or bike along it? Why not have your Gerbeaud cake and eat it too? Gawk at towering castles from the deck of our world-class Signature Ship one day, cycle the pretty riverbank the next. Our top-notch local guides (hello Jeanette, Silvia, Martin, and Judith!) lead you on show-stopping tours of local culture and cuisine. Pop into castles, towns and abbeys.

Small groups are usually defined as between 10 and 24 travelers, often less. If you're the kind of person who enjoys more intimate experiences and personal service this is a good choice. All else being equal you will pay a premium for this style vs a larger group tour.

If you've not taken a trip with Butterfield & Robinson as your guides, you must! My husband and I love to travel and are pretty resourceful at finding great hotels and restaurants on our own. However, we just completed our third trip with B&R and are always so impressed and awed at the quality of accommodations, education, and experiences we would not of had on our own.We can't wait and are already planning for the next trip!

We just returned from our first family trip with B&R though Normandy. Our guides, Thilo & Sigrid, were incredible. The trip was a perfect balance of cycling, history, food (and wine, of course). The kids loved hiking across the bay to Mont Saint-Michel and the go-karting was a huge hit (as was pizza night)! Really can't say enough great things about this trip. We enjoyed every minute and are looking forward to planning our next adventure!

I just completed my 9th biking trip with Butterfield & Robinson! We loved every minute of biking in Tuscany with our guides, Alex, Stephano and Edo. Stunning scenery, challenging biking, a great group of fellow travelers, and, of course, delicious food and wine! Private access to illuminated Medieval manuscripts was a highlight for us because we are college professors and book lovers. Thank you so much for a grand adventure.

Just got back from an amazing trip with B&R from Vienna to Prague. This was my first trip with B&R and I was so impressed by every detail!!! Our guide was so thoughtful and made sure every moment was perfect!! We really enjoyed getting to know him and felt completely spoiled by all the great treatment. The accommodations were fabulous, food and wine was delicious and plentiful, and the bike rides were all so much fun with new adventures and beautiful scenery around every turn! Even the walking tours in each place were top notch with very interesting and knowledgeable tour guides that we enjoyed getting to know. I cannot even believe how incredible this trip was, I highly recommend B&R and am already planning my next trip!!!

Accomodations

L’Hôtel de Beaune

This beautiful hotel is housed in a 19th century home and is ideally located within steps of the shops and restaurants in the historic centre of Beaune. The courtyard is a great spot to unwind over a glass of wine, and the terrace leads to an incredible view over the city’s medieval rooftops. Set in the heart of Beaune, L'Hôtel is renowned for its privacy and the personalized service.

Abbaye de la Bussière, La Bussière-sur-Ouche

This boutique hotel is a medieval castle that was once a Cistercian monastery and later a hunting lodge. Now, the hotel offers luxurious accommodations within an 18-acre park. Emmanuel Hébrard, the young talented chef of the property’s restaurant, earned his first Michelin star in 2009.

Additional Information:

Activity Level:

Enthusiast

The first four days of the trip alternate between relatively flat routes and some hilly rides. Distances range from 27 to 44 km (17 to 27 mi.) with options every day, including the Century Ride of 100 km. In general, we follow small, quiet roads through vineyards, farmland, forests and charming towns. Burgundy has been credited with having the best biking, not just in France, but the world. This is no small claim, but it has been asserted time and again by B&R guides and travellers alike.

Gear:

The Bikes

You can’t enjoy a great biking trip without a really great bike. On this trip you’ll be riding a customized hybrid or a racing bike with drop bars. We also equip you with handlebar bag, helmet and water bottle.
