For the past 20 years, Discover France has pioneered and perfected the art of self-guided cycling adventures throughout France. This year, we have moved into many new destinations in Europe, including Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Austria, Holland, Belgium, Croatia as well as Sonoma Valley, California in the U.S. In addition to our self-guided itineraries, we offer guided trips, multisport trips and customized group trips.


Experiential Cycling, Hiking, Multisport Tours in France… and Beyond For the past 20 years, Discover France has been perfecting the art of self-guided adventure. Inspired by the spirit and wanderlust of independent travelers, our itineraries go off the beaten track, allowing for deep, authentic moments. Customizable according to your timing, fitness, interests and appetites, our trips offer the ultimate affordable vacation for couples, families and groups of friends. No matter if your passion lies in investigating the architecture, gastronomy and wine—or simply the gorgeous landscapes en route—we make sure that you have an unforgettable time.

Many New Destinations in 2014 We are pleased to announce that we have expanded our reach into 10 more countries this year. With 17 new itineraries, travelers may discover the remarkable geography, markets, lakes, beaches, vineyards, castles and fortresses along the most exquisite routes of Italy, Spain, Croatia, Czech Republic/ Austria/Germany, Switzerland, Holland/Belgium and California. And just like our French trips—which cover ten regions from Alsace to Provence—these vacations offer the opportunity to get far more than just a snapshot to take home; they offer an experience in true cultural immersion that stays with you for a lifetime.

Self-Guided Itineraries Twenty years ago, Discover France pioneered the art of self-guided travel, which means we have had a lot of time to streamline every little logistical detail to make your trip absolute perfection. Self-guided travel offers travelers tremendous freedom, flexibility, and independence—all without the hassle of having to plan and strategize the route. That’s our job. So you travel on your own terms, while knowing that we provide support anywhere and at any time along the way.

What is a Self-Guided Trip? Each of our self-guided cycling, hiking or multi-sport trip is a complete and affordable vacation, tailored specifically for active, independent and curious travelers who demand exceptional value and flexibility. Here are some of essential details: • Travelers choose the dates of travel • Geared for small groups of friends or family, typically 2 to 10 people • The routes are meticulously planned by our expert staff • Bikes are serviced in-house; are never more than two years old • In-person orientation, routebook, map, high-tech GPS included • Daily luggage transfers are included • All plans are completely customizable • A choice of hotel options fit each different budgets • Access to local support and emergency services 24/7

Guided Tours Guests looking for a more structured itinerary will appreciate spending some time with our highly qualified and certified professionals. The best in the business, our guides go through intense training that is totally unique to Discover France in all the regions in which we operate. We only hire guides who possess top-level cycling experience, extensive knowledge of nature and heritage, exhibit great interpersonal skills (to make rides fun and exciting) and are multilingual. Most of all, our guides are enthusiastic about cycling and sharing that passion with travelers.

Official Operator of the Tour de France As the official Tour de France tour operator, we are able to offer exclusive, VIP access along the course. Imagine mingling with the pros at the Departure Village, following the Caravan, flying in a helicopter to get a bird’s eye view of the cyclists en route, taking on the same alpine summits and racing across the same finish lines—just before the pros do, popping open a celebratory bottle of bubbly on the Champs-Elysées.

Custom Trip For any group of four or more travelers, we are able to completely from scratch customize a trip. In the past, we have crafted itineraries for cycling clubs, garden clubs, hiking clubs, outdoor clubs, groups of friends and family reunions. Combined with our expertise in the sport of cycling, we are able to add all manner of experiences, such as sporting excursions (canoeing and kayaking, canyoning), cooking classes, wine and gastronomy education, aromatherapy, yoga, spa and treasure hunts. Beyond activities, all other details can be customized based on each group’s needs. We can arrange deluxe chateaux stays (or modest B&B’s) and van support. The range is wide open.
