Rugged Swiss Normandy is a classic cross-country mountain bike area, just 40km inland from the coast in Northern France. Based in a comfortable farmhouse choose to stay for a 3 day blast or a week long cycle holiday.
MOUNTAIN BIKING WITH RARA
This cycling holiday starts and finishes from the front door of an idyllic farmhouse in the heart of rugged Swiss Normandy. From here you can explore more than 1000km of mountain bike routes. The well-kept secret of Swiss Normandy is a biking haven where wildlife still has the upper hand. In the company of a professional mountain bike guide, you will explore local trails, rivers and gorges that are in abundance in this classic cross country mountain bike area.
As the River Orne winds its way through the area's unspoilt countryside, it creates deep valleys and immense cliffs in the granite landscape. As a result there is a wide variety of stunning tracks and trails. For beginners there are gentle scenic trails and advice on hand from your guide to ease you into the joys of mountain biking.
For the more advanced riders, there is an abundance of tough climbs and technical single track across rocks and roots, that will really test your riding skills. Take a deep breath of fresh country air on the numerous, endless downhill descents.
Get an insight into Normandy culture as you ride through quaint villages and come across farms where you can drop in and taste locally produced cheese, cider and calvados. This is rural France at its most welcoming, mix with the locals in the village tabac and cafe.
A RARA biking trip is intended to give you a brilliant travel experience. Ride with professional guides and in small groups to ensure that your needs are the focus of the trip and you have a great cycling holiday.
