Napoleon's Island, Mountains and Forests

2000 Miles (approx)

We start the touring season off in style with a tour to this wonderful volcanic island in the Mediterranean. A land of mountains, forests and beaches, and the birthplace of Napoleon Bonaparte, we have an opportunity to appreciate the best of Corsica as we spend six days on the island, exploring the stunning scenery and twisty roads!

Mountain roads, French N and D roads, some single track roads

After crossing the channel (choice of routes), we start the tour with a ride down through France, taking in some impressive scenery. Our route includes part of the famous Route Napoleon as well as a ride through the stunning Grand Canyon du Verdon. The Corsican experience starts with an overnight crossing from Toulon (ensuite cabin included) to Bastia. We disembark the following morning refreshed, before heading south on some phenomenal biking roads, drinking in the fabulous scenery and soaking up the Corsican atmosphere. We have two bases on the island, one in the south and one in the north to allow us to thoroughly explore! You really are spoiled for choice as everywhere you go there are stunning twisty mountain roads, sweeping bends and amazing scenery. The climate is typical Mediterranean which adds to the appeal, and gives you a chance to take advantage of our organised rides out, explore on your own and of course you may relax on the beach or by the hotel's pool if you fancy a day off the bike. Our return to France via the overnight ferry to Toulon is just the start of a very scenic route back home. We head for a lovely hotel set in the Haute-Loire region, and our route northwards takes in the very impressive Gorges de L'Ardeche. This is another opportunity to overload on some of the finest scenery Europe has to offer.

Firstly we must make our way to central France for our first stop which will give everyone some time to get to know each other better and enjoy the rest of your evening, either in the local vibrant town or in the comfort of your hotel. More fun to follow today as we take a combined route through the Limousin region on a combination of roads mainly using french N & D roads as your eyes are treated to the lush countryside, before we reach our main base set in the historic and beautiful Dordogne region. A very tastefully converted barn which is family run, will provide you with a pleasureable stay in the French countryside and also has an outdoor swimming pool to boot. The restaurant can only be described as excellent and serves a very tasty menu.

Also on the agenda will be the opportunity to take a ride into the Cantal Mountains situated in the Auverge region to Puy Mary & Puy de Dome and take the highest road in France outside of the Alps and Pyrenees, but often considered to be one of the prettiest panoramic views in Europe. Finally our journey home will soon be round the next winding bend and over the summit of the next peak so we must say Au-revoir and make our way homeward bound with one more stopover before reaching Calais to catch the ferry home.

After the joys of the mountains, we then head for a couple of nights in Menton on the Mediterranean Coast, where we can relax or explore as you wish.

Our tour concludes with a further overnight stay near the French town of Dijon (mustard anyone?!) and then our final nights' stay in the Pas de Calais region, where again we will be able to enjoy a drink and eat our final dinner together and recount some glorious memories of the previous ten days.
