"Our French Ardennes tour will suit anyone looking for a relaxing few days riding in Northern Europe and also to anyone who may be touring on a motorbike outside of the UK for the first time. ..."

We have one hotel as our base for the 5 days / 4 nights of this tour set in a small community in the heart of the Champagne-Ardenne region of France. Included in the tour are your breakfasts at the hotel and each evening there will be excellent French cuisine to enjoy together with regional wine and coffee.

This region of France may not have high mountains but many elevation changes on the rolling hillsides provide great visibility, sweeping bends and open quiet roads. There will be a short section of autoroute on Day 1 of the tour before we ride into the Belgian countryside for lunch overlooking one of the largest man-made lakes in the country. Our route continues through the forests of both the Belgian and French Ardennes stopping for coffee by the river Meuse before arriving at our hotel.

Three ride-out days are planned to include sections of the Champagne Tourist route which winds through vineyards and picturesque villages with lunch on one of the days in a local Auberge. The Belgian border is within an hour of our hotel and the forests of the Ardennes provide excellent motorcycling roads. You will experience several changes to the landscape rising from deep river valleys onto high plateaus as we ride through the Semois Valley stopping in Rochehaut, literally translated as “High Rock” where you can take in the views of the meandering river below you.

Our hotel is close to locations steeped in history from both World War I and II and we will be riding to visit some of the memorials in the area such as The Butte de Montsec which is an American War Memorial site standing proud overlooking Lac de Madine.

The final day of the tour starts with a ride north through the Champagne-Ardenne joining the autoroute near Reims. We have planned in a couple of stops on the autoroute before arriving at the Eurotunnel terminal in Calais for a mid-afternoon crossing to the UK.
