Description of Self guided cycling short break in Switzerland and France

Cycling in Switzerland doesn’t get any better than the landscapes surrounding Lake Geneva. This three-day self-guided itinerary through Switzerland and France allows cyclists to experience the very best cycling routes and mountain views over a short break.

The chance to cycle an average 45kms a day is sure to put you through your paces, though the relatively flat gradients around lakesides, mountain foothills and the La Cote vineyards ensure leisurely riding as opposed to challenging ascents.

Experience it all on your bike, all at your own pace: wine-making villages and medieval architecture; the sophistication of Geneva, and the charming French town of Yvoire. Sensational scenery and culture come together in one unforgettable three-day short break cycling in Switzerland and France.

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

Our trip takes you along the shores of Lake Geneva, as well as through the French countryside, cycling by the region's vineyards and fields. It is organized on a self-guided basis, offering you the chance to experience such natural beauty while leaving behind a smaller footprint than would a guided tour.

People

Visiting many of the local towns such as Signy, the medieval village of Yvoire and Anthy-sur-Léman, you will experience total freedom. Whether visiting a museum, browsing and shopping at a local market or enjoying a leisurely lunch, this self-guided tour will permit you to not just observe, but experience the local people, environment and culture. Many of the restaurants used on this tour are also family-owned, serving seasonal, locally grown produce of the freshest of quality.

Relying on local guides and family-owned hotels, you will be ensured a warm, personalized welcome. All properties are run by people who have a passion for their region and its cultural, gastronomic and historical heritage. We use genuine places with local charm, blending harmoniously into the environment. Our hotels offer guests a pleasant, nice-sized environment. Some of them have as few as two rooms, while others are small human-sized hotels.
