Cycle through beautiful villages and vineyards of the Burgundy countryside
The rolling countryside of Burgundy, crisscrossed with dedicated cycle paths through extensive vineyards and alongside canals make for an ideal and relaxed self-guided itinerary. Pretty villages break up the route and grand chateaux, with colourful tiled roofs, stand guard over their carefully nurtured and valuable grapes. Burgundy is one of the premier wine producing regions of the world, so if the cycling alone isn’t enough to tempt you, then perhaps a glass of the finest Pinot Noir or Chardonnay is? Dijon and Beaune complete this trip with their timeless charm, impressive architecture and choice of exceptional restaurants.

The combination of high-rise mountains, jungles filled with wild life and the unfathomable variety of within a single country is what makes Bolivia so unique and irresistible to visit. Here are the top things not to miss out on.
