Travelogue:

Get to know France away from the crowded Mediterranean beaches, visit historical sites, experience the huge variety of landscapes on wonderful motorcycle routes and enjoy the regional cuisine in its places of origin in the evening.

Near Bordeaux, we go on a day trip to the premium wine region Médoc and the dunes of Pilat on the Atlantic Ocean. Our next destination Albi, situated on the Tarn, forms a fabulous architectural ensemble with its fortified brick cathedral and its former episcopal palace. On a day trip we visit the world famous Cité of Carcassonne. With its three kilometres of defensive walls and 52 towers, Carcassonne Castle on the right bank of the Aude is the largest fortified city in Europe! Through the Cévennes we reach the Ardèche region, where we start from Vallon-Pont-d'Arc on a day trip to explore the 30 km long Ardèche Gorge and the wild mountain roads all around. We continue through the Massif Central to Mont-Dore, the centre of the Auvergne with its puys, those green volcanic cones we visit on a day trip. We then cross the Rhône valley eastwards to Annecy, the magnificent old residential town situated on Lac d'Annecy. France's highest mountain, the Mont Blanc, is the destination of our day trip to the Alps. Then it's off to the French Jura, from the shores of Lake Geneva up to Villers-le-Lac to the stage hotel and the next morning along the Doubs through the Jura into Alsace for the final dinner in Lauterbourg.
