Bike & Barge - Paris & Champagne

Start in Paris, one of Europe’s most beautiful and beloved cities, for a full day’s guided discovery of Paris “City of Light”. Then wind through the valley of the river Marne to the city of Meaux famous for its Brie cheeses. Stylish cities, delightful villages and family-run vineyards. In 2015, UNESCO granted the Champagne area the status of World Heritage; the vineyards, wine cellars and sales houses where champagne is produced and sold are considered culturally significant. Along the way you will visit some small champagne producers who will be proud to let you taste their best Champagne wines. The barge will also spend a night in Château-Thierry, scene of major battles in World War I. Cycle through the vineyards on the rolling banks of the Marne River to finally reach the true capital of the Champagne region, the city of Epernay. Here you will visit one of the magnificent champagne cellars. The tour operates in reverse depending on your date of departure.
