UTracks opens its 2021 bike and boat bookings

This year, UTracks aims to help travellers to plan ahead by opening the reservations on a selection of its 2021 bike and boating journeys now. With many of its boat based active trips sold out for 2020, the aim is to avoid disappointing travellers.

UTracks is offering four of its popular seven or eight day self-guided and guided experiences in France, Italy and Scotland.

Bordeaux Bike and Boat

An oenophile’s dream: the Bordeaux region in south-western France provides the perfect base for an exceptional bike and boat experience. Set at the confluence of the Garonne River and the Gironde estuary, Bordeaux is one of the most prolific and famous wine growing regions in the world. The vineyards that cover the rolling hills of this iconic wine district have for centuries produced France’s most remarkable wines. Cycle through vineyards and villages – and even a fortified citadel in Blaye – there are opportunities to visit many of the wine houses to sample their wares. Each night enjoy chef prepared regional specialties with fresh ingredients.
