Arrival and Departure from the Strasbourg Airport
Situated in the northeast of France, this area is framed by the Vosges Hills in the west and the valley of the Rhine to the west. This quintessentially French region is infused with German influences, as it was part of Germany from 1870 until after WWI. It can be seen in the architecture, cuisine and language.
Alsace is tremendously beautiful and interesting. Vineyards and the historical towns—many with castle remnants and medieval walls—are the focus of this tour. And as always when in France, you’ll delight in good food and local wines throughout.
Moderate riding, some hills, average 25 to 35 miles per day.
