Bruges - Paris
The most famous of our tours! From the Middle Ages of Bruges to the City of Light in two weeks. Most of our guests from Australia, Canada and New Zealand experience this tour as a journey through their own history because of the memories of the Great War. In Péronne, where ANZAC day is commemorated each year, the Feniks halts for a day to offer you the possibility to make a guided tour along the War Memorials of the First World War, like Villers-Bretonneux, the Victoria School and the 4th Division Memorial of the Australian Army Corps in Bellenglise.
From there you will continue along Compiègne, the castle of Chantilly, to Auvers sur Oise (where Vincent van Gogh lived and painted the last months of his life). The last day you will sail along La Défense, the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre and the Notre Dame while ending your tour in the midst of Paris.
Character of the tour
The tour is most of the time in slightly sloping countryside with occasionally some steeper hills. Daily average distance of 40 - 45 Km, sometimes 50 Km, or 4 to max. 5 hrs. by bike.
This is a two week tour, of which you can join the Feniks from Bruges to Péronne and then go further to Paris by train. The airport Charles de Gaulle is less than one hour by TGV.
