Buried in the heart of southwest France, the Dordogne region is a hidden gem in an area of magnificent beauty. It is a place where crowds are few, towns are tranquil, and landscapes are stunningly scenic. In addition to magnificent chateaux, the area is also home to well-known prehistoric sites. If you are looking to get away from it all with a peaceful cycling vacation, consider one of our Dordogne bike tours.
Directly east of its neighbor, Bordeaux, the Dordogne is defined by the Dronne, Vezere, and Dordogne river valleys. Rolling countryside peppered with innumerable chateaux, castles, churches and villages that conceal more obscure prehistoric sites, a Magdalenian period cliff and cave dwellings. Days spent taking in the paysage and seeing the sites are punctuated by exquisite meals of such quality that you would hope for and expect.
All of our Dordogne bike tours are private custom self-guided tours, where you can name the dates, riding distance, and other details of your tour. You have our years-proven worry-free routing, and a guide/concierge always available to help you when you need it.
You begin in Les Eyzies and pedal through well-known areas and towns within the region: Sarlat, La Roque Gageac, and Montignac. Longer tours include rides and stays in Mayronne, Rocamadour, and Sint-Cirq LaPopie.
As with all of our self-guided bike tours, we offer something for everyone—from relaxed options that can be completed on e-bikes or hybrid bikes, to aggressive routes for avid cyclists on road bikes. Our suggested itineraries range from 6 to 10 nights, or we can custom design a tour for you.

“The team at the Outfitter Bicycle Tours put together an amazing holiday that I’ll never forget. We had great places to stay/eat and we were always in the thick of the action. The tour rides catered for riders of all levels and we somehow managed to visit my favourite team on a tour ride! I’ll be back to do it all again soon.”
“I was able to watch Tour de France action when I wanted and ride the beautiful roads and passes of France when I wanted, and the flexibility to do either was what I most appreciated. Conquering Mont Ventoux, Col d Galibier, Col d Semnoz, Col d Serene, Alpe de Huez, riding alongside Andy Schleck and Jens Voigt on their rest day, and 40+ mph descents that went on for miles are just some of the hi… Read more
“The support was incredible – so nice to have a car on the route for water, and so we did not have to lug gear for weather changes. With all the elevation, this was comforting. Exceptional mechanical support. We did not expect this kind of on-road support!”
I always had an idea that I wanted to go see the Tour de France once in my life. Well, I have now gone on three TdF trips with Outfitter Bicycle Tours as the experience was that good. Jamie and Joy’s low key, friendly and flexible approach made riding in the Alps an amazing experience. They did a great job of helping me determine what would maximize my experience. If I wanted an easier day, they h… Read more
