Dordogne Cycling Holidays
The most beautiful part of the Dordogne valley is the Périgord Noir, where are Dordogne cycling tour is based. As well as some of the world's most famous prehistoric sites, the Dordogne was the crucible of The Hundred Years War and boasts spectacular medieval castles.
It's also very beautiful, from lush green valleys to the arid limestone causses on the plateau between the Dordogne and Lot rivers. Throw in a distinctive traditional cuisine largely based on duck and goose, but also featuring truffles and walnuts.
The Dordogne cycling holiday is quite hilly, nothing too brutal, but a bit of training in advance wouldn't do any harm.
A moderately challenging tour; we start and finish in Les Eyzies; 8 days / 7 nights. This tour is available as a self-guided option.Tour dates

He carried a repair outfit, a first aid kit and a sense of humour, which coped with almost every eventuality.Michael J Woods, The Financial Times
