This tour offers a superb mix of relaxing riding on quiet country roads, plenty of live racing action, exploring villages and embracing the local French culture and experiencing the Parisien "joie de vivre"

 

 

Our Tour de France ‘Pyrenees to Paris’ holiday has been carefully designed to take in 4 of the deciding stages of the race including the final stage around Paris, with other days spent taking in many of our favourite quiet back-roads, classic climbs and quintessential French villages plus exploring the beautiful city of Toulouse.

 


As with our other Tour (Alsace to French Alpes), we offer something for everyone and cater for all riding abilities including those who simply want to enjoy the Tour de France and exploring beautiful France.

 


We will discover the ultimate climbs in the Pyrenees including the Col du Soulor, Aubisque, Hautacam and Tourmalet! All the while enjoying being a part of Le Tour de France action as it snakes it’s way through and over some of the most stunning scenery of France, the Pyrenean mountains.

 


Following our arrival into Toulouse and a day spent exploring and riding, we will make the short transfer to Pyrenees for 4 adventure-filled days. 

 

The first mountain tour stage to Bagneres de Luchon and the classic Port de Bales awaits, this is indeed a climb of epic proportions and arguably the toughest climb the peloton will face this edition of the Tour de France.
 

 

Another memorable day will be that spent on the Col du Tourmalet plus the option to climb Luz Ardiden; a favourite of procyclingtours, you will soon know why!

 

Culminating with a First Class TGV transfer  into the heart of Paris to our luxury 4 star hotel just a short stroll to the famous Louvre Museum and the TDF circuit. Plenty of time to experience the fantastic Tour de France Grand Finale, in this amazing city.

 


A ride through the streets of Paris, including our very own lap of the Champs Elysees in the morning of the final stage, just before the pro’s arrive; a truly unique experience.  Followed by a guided lap through Paris, taking in the city’s most famous sites on your bike, there’s nothing quite like it we can assure you. Even for those that are not riding on this tour, we will arrange a bike so you can also feel like a true Parisian as it’s a nice flat ride!

 


The remainder of the day you will be immersed in the full VIP Tour de France experience, while sipping French champagne and eating delicious cuisine directly on the race circuit under the large marque and grandstand, only metres from the finish line!

 

 

No better way to finish your Tour de France holiday than with your new found friends and the team at procyclingtours….. What a holiday!
