As a cycling fan you will have no doubt enthusiastically followed the Tour de France on television, but actually watching the race live is incredible! This year our Tour de France special is a centre based trip in the picturesque town of Le Fayet, from here we will explore the many high passes and famous cols which wind there way through the stunning Haute Savoie region. For one week we will immerse ourselves in the ‘living theatre’ of the Tour de France as we see the riders warm up and sign on in Megeve, fight for a mountain top victory on the challenging ascent to Lac d'Emosson, race against the clock in an individual time trial to Sallanches and see them sprint for the line in Saint-Gervais-les-Bains. Can Chris Froome hang on to the yellow jersey for another year, or will his contenders prove too strong in the mountains? Book early to find out as this special trip sells out very quickly every year!
