Day 1 (Saturday)

Once you are arrived there will be an optional transfer from our meeting point in Bordeaux to the location of the boat near the Canal des Deux Mers at Castets-en-Dorthe.


You will be helped with your luggage and shown the way to your sleeping cabin on the ship, MS Bordeaux. Afterwards you have the opportunity to pack your bike and start your first small trip in the town of Castets. This fruit-like environment is also known as "Little Holland", due to its many arable crops and fruit fields.


During the welcome drink you will meet the crew and the other guests. While you enjoy your dinner you can already have some first conversations with your fellow travelers. You'll take a seat at a large table and you can change places every day if you wish.


Note: Every day you cycle through a new area with a new kind of Bordeaux's wine. The tour guide will show you a House of the Wine, where you can stop for a few minutes to discover the wine region of the day, including tasting local wines (free for individual guests). This is a valuable stopover, also for those who are planning to visit the vineyards. They serve as a source of information for wine-related activities in their area. You will also find a tourist office, historical monuments, coffee shops, restaurants and other recommended places every day along the way.
