Western France's Dordogne River flows nearly 500 kilometers from the volcanic Massif Central region through deep gorges, steep cliffs, fertile farmland and famed vineyards to its mouth in the Bay of Biscay near Bordeaux. Our route traces the river's descent from Brive-la-Gaillarde to St. Émilion by way of some of the nicest cycling routes and most hospitable hosts in Europe. Add visits to cave sculptures at Cap Blanc, two nights in St. Émilion, wine tastings and great food, and you have one of our all-time favorite bicycle tours.

Highlights: Lascaux II, 3 nights in Sarlat, Rocamadour, Cotes de Bergerac & St. Emilion, wine areas of Monbazillac, Collonges-la-Rouge, Gouffres of Padirac, medieval castles, beautiful landscapes.

***If this sounds great but you don't have time for the full 11 days, check out our Cycling the Dordogne, which features the first 6 nights of this itinerary.***
