Champagne: the name conjures images of effervescent golden liquid, sparkling in an elegant flute, toasting a celebration, and also the rolling countryside in France where this fabulous drink is produced. This leisurely exploration of the Champagne region will reward you with beautiful, charming villages, chalk hillsides covered in pinot noir, pinot meunier and chardonnay vines; and of course the opportunity to meet the families who create the world’s most famous wine. Champagne also holds some surprises: medieval churches, the Gothic Notre Dame cathedral of Reims, and a lighthouse hundreds of kilometers from the sea, built as a publicity stunt in 1909.

On this tour you will experience a region proud of its glorious past, offering many attractions and firmly turned to the future. The main city Reims, where your tour begins, will offer you UNESCO World Heritage sites, such as the Reims cathedral. You will be enchanted by the beauty and the variety of its scenery. This region is also the birthplace of champagne: the magical and sparkling wine of kings and celebrations. Surprise yourself: push open the door of a small champagne producer or a champagne house and see thousands of champagne bottles, lying in the cellars dug in chalk! In the freshness and the magic of these cellars, time does its work and it is from the darkness of these cellars that the wine of the light is born: the champagne.

This is a trip for those who have a reasonable level of fitness. To make the best champagnes, the grapes have to be grown on slopes, so be prepared for some hills along the way!
