Tour de France


Our Tour de France, Your Tour of a lifetime.…

2014 promises to be a spectacle of a Tour, with all the grandeur of the sprints, breakaways, climbs, and suffering. Trek Travel puts you in the middle of the action with our Tour de France package. Nowhere else can you tackle the serious vertical of the Pyrenees and Alps, sip champagne at the finish, meet the racers of the new Trek Factory Racing Team, and ride the same bikes the pros ride in the one-day Classics. Our insider’s access guarantees you the best seats at the start in Leeds, in perfect VIP viewing-position for the KOMs that count, or the final gallop to the line in Paris. As an Official Tour Operator in 2014, no one else can bring you this close to the race you’ve always dreamt of. Phil and Paul themselves are guaranteed to be jealous.
