Tour de France

Alps & Paris Short

July 25th – July 29th, 2019 • non-cycling

This is a short trip for spectators. Your trip will feature the dramatic Alps mountains of France before finishing le Tour in Paris! We will begin the trip with a race viewing on one of the toughest mountain stages in Tour de France history. The racers will have to climb Col de Vars, Col d’izoard and Col du Galibier before reaching us.

On the second day, we will be able to view another brutal mountain stage from a private viewing area along the course. You will join the crowds to see the caravan pass before cheering your favorite racer as he passes right in front of you. On the third day we will view the start of the stage in Albertville before catching a train to Paris. You will be right in the middle of the action of the final day of le Tour as you watch the racers pass in front of you 8 times from your grandstand seats on the Champs Elysees. To cap off the exciting day, you will enjoy the best views of Paris from a private boat, chartered by Custom Getaways for a dinner cruise on the Seine.
