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.  

Trip details

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

We have just returned from a brilliant holiday in the Dordogne with the Chain Gang. I just wanted to drop you an email to let you know what a fabulous time we had and how great Pete was to have alongside us. He is the perfect combination of mechanic, butler and court jester. You can tell him that!

I have no doubt that we will join a tour next summer too. Possibly in Provence next time.

Finally, I wondered if you could tell us what bikes we were riding? We have decided to buy ones as similar as possible as they were so good

Great week in the Dordogne, great bikes. Lyndsay Parker, UK
