Burgundy is widely recognized around the world for producing some of the world’s finest red wines such as Meursault, Gevrey Chambertin, Nuits-St-Georges, and Montrachet to name a few. Most these wine-making villages can be visited while cycling the wine route, “La Route des Grands Crus.”
Burgundy is not only about wine! With some of France’s most famous architectural wonders–such as Beaune, Dijon, or the Abbey of Cluny—and its traffic-free bike routes along its canals, Burgundy is an extraordinary destination for wine lovers, history buffs, and novice cyclists. Further south, Beaujolais’ authentic villages and breathtaking landscape (you can see Mont-Blanc from some parts of Beaujolais) make this area an unmatched playground for avid cyclists… and photographers.
All these areas can be explored on bike… just visit our Burgundy regional page.
