Bike and Barge France: Bordeaux-region: wine, rivers and culture | Bordeaux

During this unique tour on board the ship “Bordeaux” you will explore one of the most beautiful, famous and beloved parts of France. The region of Bordeaux, located in Aquitaine, the sun drenched, south-western part of France, is the perfect setting for a boat and bike tour. Set at the confluence of the Garonne and Dordogne rivers and the Gironde estuary, it is one of the most prolific and famous wine growing regions in the world. Caressed by Atlantic breezes, the vineyards that cover the rolling hills of the region have for centuries produced France’s most remarkable wines. Appellations such as Saint-Émilion, Pomerol, Sauternes, Médoc, Entre-Deux-Mers and Margaux have made Bordeaux wines world famous.

During daily cycling tours through six famous wine regions you will visit these areas, see many châteaux, vineyards and wine estates and you will probably taste various excellent wines. The Bordeaux area does not only offer the best wines; it is also home to finest, scrumptious, distinct tasting culinary specialties. The cuisine on board is great and menus will include regional specialties, prepared with fresh ingredients. The bar on board offers a wide variety of excellent local wines to enjoy during dinner or simply to taste them during your personal “cocktail hour”…

At the region’s heart, the city of Bordeaux is the cultural center. Once known as the Sleeping Beauty, the UNESCO World Heritage Site stretches along the Garonne river banks, inviting visitors to savor its grand architecture, tempting cafés and shops and superb museums. The probably most bicycle-friendly French city sleeps no more!

Cruise the Dordogne, Garonne and Gironde Rivers and cycle through the vineyards on carefully chosen routes and experience this region in a unique way!

Day to day program Castets-en-Dorthe to Fronsac/Libourne

Parts that are printed in italics parts will be covered by the ship.

All distances are “approximate distances” of recommended bike tours.

The planned itinerary is subject to change due to nautical, technical or meteorological reasons and other unforeseen circumstances. If there is low or high water and a route cannot be shipped, the captain reserves the right to change the route in view of your safety (this cannot be accepted as a reason for free withdrawal).

Day 1 (Sat): Castets-en-Dorthe – Canal des Deux Mers | Round tour (15 km/10 mi.)

Individual arrival and optional bus transfer from the meeting point at Gare St. Jean train station in Bordeaux to the mooring location of the boat near the Canal des Deux Mers at Castets-en-Dorthe, located in the middle of the Garonne Valley. Embarkation starts at 2 pm. You can enjoy an optional short first test bicycle ride around charming Castets, exploring this flat and fertile region aptly named “Little Holland” with its walnut trees, kiwi orchards and vegetable fields. Following the bicycle path along the Canal des Deux Mers (Canal of Two Seas) that links the Atlantic to the Mediterranean, you will discover this lush rural countryside. In the evening, a welcome cocktail awaits you on board.

Day 2 (Sun): Castets-en-Dorthe – Saint Macaire – La Réole – Canal de la Garonne Round tour | Castets-en-Dorthe – Loupiac/Cadillac (21 km/13 mi. or 30 km/19 mi. or 51 km/32 mi.)

After a restful night on board, the first town you will discover by bicycle is the lovely Saint Macaire and its wonderful gate and walls. There is opportunity to visit the former residence of the writer Francois Mauriac as well as having your first wine tasting at a château. Riding along corn and sunflower fields you reach La Réole, using an Eiffel style bridge over the river Garonne. This town is famous because in 1190 Richard Lionheart, on his way to the holy Land, gave the town hall building to thank the locals for their loyalty to the English crown. This historical place holds two castles, an impressive church as well as narrow cobblestoned streets. To end the day you will enjoy the cycling path along the « canal de la Garonne » and its deep blue water, built in Napoleon times. You can either go directly back to the ship or ride to Meilhan-sur-Garonne and the amazing scenery it has to offer. In the late afternoon, back on board again, the tour continues by ship, heading downstream along the Garonne River to reach Cadillac or nearby Loupiac.

Day 3 (Mon): Cadillac/Loupiac Sauternes Round tour |  Cadillac – Bordeaux (49 km/30 mi.)

Today we will discover the Sauternes region, where sweet dessert wines are made. We start by enjoying the view from Sainte-Croix du Mont before having a look at the grave of painter Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. The route then follows the winding banks of the small Ciron river; the colder waters (from the Pyrenees) flow into the warmer waters of the Garonne. In autumn, when the weather is warm and dry, the combination of the two different temperatures produce the mist that descends on the vineyards, promoting the perfect conditions for the famous Sauternes wine.
You will pass the famous vineyards of Château d’Yquem, Château Guiraud, Clos Haut Peyraguey, and many more. Wine tastings are offered here! Cadillac is located in the region of Graves, also known as the birthplace of Bordeaux wines. It is a fortified medieval village, known as the Bastide in the Entre-Deux-Mers wine region, in between the Garonne and Dordogne rivers. Once back on board, you will travel along the Garonne River towards the enchanting city of Bordeaux, reaching the passage of the Stone Bridge and the pier in the city center, facing the region’s most prestigious panorama: the Stone Bridge, Place de la Bourse and Quai des Chartrons.

Day 4 (Tue): Bordeaux city Round tour (12 km/7 mi.)

The tour leader will propose a city tour of Bordeaux to discover its architectural gems on two wheels: this short cycling tour, mainly over cycling lanes, along both sides of the Garonne river in the cycling capital of France offers beautiful panorama views of the waterfront and the city. In the afternoon, enjoy the UNESCO sites of Bordeaux during a walking or cycling tour. Its main attractions are the royal entrance of the city (Cailhau Gate), the Big Bell of Pey Berlan, the Golden Triangle, the Girondins column, the water mirror… and much more. You will discover beautiful squares, a hidden garden or quaint location where you can do a tasting of the Bordeaux renowned “cannelés” and coffee or fresh oysters and white wine. There is free time in the afternoon to shop or explore. Be sure to explore the town’s streets and shops where wine is as old as the underground cellars carved in stone or to visit the newly opened astonishing “temple of wine culture”: La Cité du Vin.

Day 5 (Wed): Bordeaux – Lamarque | Lamarque (Médoc) Round tour | Lamarque – Bourg (45 km/28 mi. or 56 km/35 mi.)

In the morning the ship cruises from Bordeaux, following the Garonne downstream to Lamarque in the Gironde estuary, to start your cycling tour in the famous Médoc wine area.

You will be surprised to see what this region holds in secret behind its hilly landscape covered with endless vines and dotted with scattered fairy tale chateaux and elegant manor houses. Since the Middle Ages, countless numbers of pilgrims on their way to Santiago de Compostella have passed through this region. Be enchanted by the “douceur de vivre” (sweet life), so typical for this wine region. In Blaye, take a short loop through the Vauban Fortress (on the UNESCO World Heritage List) to admire this military masterwork of the architect of Louis XIV, the “Sun King”, before you return to Bourg by cycling part of the “Corniche”, a scenic, quiet road along the Gironde estuary. In the evening you will sail to Fronsac / Libourne on the Dordogne river.

Day 7 (Fri): Fronsac/Libourne, Pomerol & Saint-Émilion vineyards Round tour (21 km/13 mi. or 37 km/23 mi. or 44 km/27 mi.)

I thoroughly enjoyed the trip! The cycling tours had a mix of easy and slightly more challenging days. The boat is an older boat and for the most part beautifully maintained. The bedrooms could do with a little refresh.
