Important notice:
Please note: As the support vehicle drives the combination tour (Sardinia & Corsica), the luggage has to be checked in before the arrival in Sardinia and you will only get it back after the Corsica tour! You will therefore need a small amount of hand luggage for the overnight stays.
Mobility: The offer is not suitable for people with reduced mobility. Please contact us for more information.

It would be a shame to pass the numerous highlights of France, as the Ardèche canyon, the Mont Ventoux (known among others by the Tour de France) and the Verdon canyon without having taken them under the wheels.

Contrary to many other tour operators, we use the night ferries for the crossings from Toulon to Corsica and back. They are more expensive, but we gain two additional riding days.

On Corsica we arrive in Bastia and stay not far away in a very nice hotel directly at the sea. From there our day tours lead into the mountains and valleys with beautiful roads for cruising or cornering. The pigs, goats, cows and horses that actively participate in the traffic on the road make you feel as if you have been transported back 100 years in time.

Many of our participants are also going to the island for the second or third time. Once you've been there, you're forever addicted to the island's charm!

Tour itinerary:

Day 1

Journey to Lyon.

Departure at 7.00 a.m. at the Geismühle West (A57) rest stop in southern direction via Luxembourg, Metz, Nancy, Dijon and Beaune to our intermediate hotel near Lyon.

Alternatively you can join the group on the way or travel to Lyon on your own.

Day 2

Through the Ardèche gorge to Séguret.

Day trip from Lyon through the Ardèche gorge to the foot of Mont Ventoux to our second hotel in Séguret.

Day 3

Over the Mont Ventoux to the ferry...

Day trip over the Mont Ventoux and along the Grand Canyon du Verdon to Toulon for embarkation to Corsica.

Day 4

Around the Cap Corse.

After our arrival in Corsica we undertake on the way to our base hotel a small day trip to get used to the Cap Corse.

Day 5

To the west coast of Corsica.

Today's day trip takes us 'across the island' to Calvi, on the coastal road to the Gulf of Girolata, through the Spelunca Gorge and over the Col de Vergio back to the base hotel.

Day 6

Through the mountains of Corsica.

Today starts with the ride on the narrow headland between the Lagnunensee Etang de Biguglia and the sandy beach of Plage de Marana. After this "flat stage" there are "bends till the end" on our way to the mountains. One of the day's destinations is the panoramic road through the Valée d'Asco.

Day 7

Day off.

Day at leisure ... to, for example, just lie around relaxed on the beach or take a little walk.

Day 8

Across the island to the ferry.

As our ferry to Toulon does not depart until the evening, we have time for a day tour to the middle east of the island, whereby we will again ride on many little roads. The most south-western point is Ghisoni. In an elegant arc to the north-east we reach Bastia in the evening, where we board the ferry to Toulon.

Day 9

Through the Maritime Alps to the intermediate hotel.

From Toulon we ride via Saint-Tropez and Entrevaux, passing the Lac de Castillon to Castellane to our intermediate hotel.

Day 10

Through Vercors to Lyon.

Through the Département Drôme, one of the most beautiful areas of France, and the wild and rugged Vercors with its many passes, we will go to the last stopover hotel in Lyon.

Day 11

Return journey.

Joint or individual return journey to Krefeld or home.
