Tracing Indomitable Roots

Above all, the Alsatians are proud—proud to be Alsatian and proud of what it means to be Alsatian. As the stretch between Germany and France, the Alsatian’s have taken words, wines, customs and myths from those who pass through their region either making war or staking claim on the territory. Alsace is the result of countless years of mixing cultures, people and the indomitable character of the Alsatian locals. On this adventure we will ride on winding roads through vineyards and historic towns, visit beautiful villages and enjoy a wine tasting across the border in Germany.

Trip designed by Travel Expert Annik Boulva


Day by Day

Start your first ride in the small town of Balbronn, high up in the foothills of the Vosges. Visit a typical medieval town, enjoy a delicious Alsatian lunch and ride through vineyards and historic towns before settling in at our beautiful spa-based hotel where we will enjoy cocktails and a delicious dinner.

Begin the day riding through orchards and forests before breaking out into rolling vineyards. Pay a visit to the Spindler Marquetry Workshop and taste wines over a picnic lunch in a winery. Head back to the hotel this afternoon for some down time or try to climb the hill up to Mont Ste. Odile which sits above the mountaintop and affords beautiful views of the great plain of the Rhine.

Head south to Illhaeusern and pass countless colourful villages hidden amongst the vines. The ride takes us through the wilderness of the Grand Reid and finally to the Hôtel des Berges. Settle in and enjoy a stroll of the stunning grounds before dinner tonight at one of many options in town or at the hotel.

Ride towards the River Rhein and enter Germany to explore the Kaisersthul, its slopes, vineyards and volcanic soil which welcome Pinot Noir grapes, Sylvaner and Riesling. Explore the region along bike paths and enjoy lunch at your own pace. Dinner tonight is in the town of Colmar, known as La Petite Venice because of the river that winds between the streets and houses, navigated by punts and barques.

Pedal west through quintessential wine-making villages Ribeauvillé, Riquewihr and Kayserberg, which was once the border between France and Germany. Enjoy a wine tasting at the winery Hugel and Fils and have a traditional alsatian lunch in one of the villages. Tonight get ready for a memorable dinner at the outstanding Haeberlin family establishment, a three Michelin-starred institution!

After a farewell breakfast at the hotel, you’ll transfer to the Strasbourg train station, which had direct connections to you Paris. Should you opt to extend your travels in France or elsewhere in Europe, your guides will be happy to assist you with travel arrangements. Bon voyage!
