Experience the Beauty of Colmar
Discover the small town of Colmar France and the Alsace landscape on this 2 and a half hour cycling experience. At first, you will be met in a central meeting point in Colmar. This morning, discover Colmar as you begin your bike ride with a ride through the streets and historic center lined with 13th century timbered houses and 16th century façades. Depending on your great guide you might pass in front of some of the following landmarks of the town: the Pfister house, Saint Martin Church, the Unterlinden museum where the Issenheim Altarpiece is located or the house of Auguste Bartholdi, maker of the Statue of Liberty. You might even hear about the itinerary followed by the Tour de France that passed through the town in 2019.
After having visited Colmar, head out to the Alsace countryside and reach the Alsace wine route. The cycling routes here are some of the most beautiful of Alsace and the electric bikes insure that you benefit from the ride. Your next visit will be the small authentic village of Eguisheim. Here, there will be plenty of photo opportunities and a small break before continuing on through the vineyards of the Alsace region. You will also stop at a local vineyard for a light wine tasting session. By Wettolsheim, you will then finally return to Colmar for the end of the tour.
During this activity it is possible to ask for road bikes or mountain bikes but we strongly recommend asking for E-bikes that will take you smoothly through the roads of Alsace. Other highly recommended cyclo tours or cycling day trips are possible upon request so don’t hesitate to contact us if you have other wishes.

Great wine tasting trip – A tour through beautiful country with a knowledgeable tour leader to visit wineries. Each winery had a range of tastings and a good discourse on the growing of the grape and the wine produced.
Great experience and a lovely guide – With our very nice guide Daniele, a very well mixed group of members and some amazing wines, this trip was totally worth it.
Don’t miss this tour!! – We had a great time on the Alsace wine route tour. Flo was very friendly, warm and entertaining! We all fell in love with the picturesque little villages along the way and of course the wine was spectacular!
Great morning winetasting – We had a great time visiting two wineries in a morning, as well as driving through the Alsace countryside and having some time to explore the small towns. Great guide too.
Wonderful Trip! – Our guide Bridgette and the tour was wonderful and a perfect amount of time (and wine)! We loved seeing little towns and sampling some of Alsace’s finest wines! Memories of a lifetime!
