Burgundy River Adventure Northbound

All Ventures>>Untours Ventures Presents>>Burgundy River Adventure Northbound
Blessed with some of the most gorgeous countryside in Europe if not the world (not to mention perhaps the best wine around), Burgundy is a place everyone should explore at least once. And the best way to do it is from the deck of an ambling river barge. Visit small villages and first-rate wineries, bike through forests and vineyards on a provided bicycle, and soak up the glorious sunshine, all with the help of a charming little hotel that goes where you go. You won’t get a better glimpse of Burgundy’s pastoral pleasures than this.

Note that this is an active cruise with two full days of bicycling.

Clients Say:

Crew, food, wine, tours, guide were excellent. I would recommend this trip to everyone. I love the fact that there was a small number of other people on this cruise.
T. and P. Smith

Philip did a great job educating about our destinations. Great job accommodating the various personalities of the group. Highlight of the trip was the two days cycling with our guide Eric and the great lunches laid out by Philip.
