Dordogne, Lot & Quercy , very light cycling tour
  • 5, 6, 7 or 8 days super soft cycling tours in Dordogne valley with bags transfer. If you want a restday or staying an extra night in one of the hotels of the trip you can book extra nights in any of the hotels.

  • Half board (dinner included), except in Martel and Rocamadour.

  • Short distances: no more than 25 km cycling a day is possible.

Find the path of the river Dordogne in the Quercy of  Lot department alternated with the Causse du Quercy, a smooth limestone plateau with open scenery on top of the causse.

Not as polished as the scenery of the Dordogne department.
Rocamadour, the second pilgrimmage attraction of France with its beautiful small canyon of the Gorge de l'Ouysse and the beautiful Dordogne valley provide the scenery for a quiet biking tour. You'll have plenty of time to visit beautiful medieval villages like Souillac, Martel, Carennac and Rocamadour.

The Gouffre de Padirac is another attraction you shouldn't miss.
