Tour de France Spectator - Itinerary for the Racing Fan
Welcome to Lyon
Your Tour de France Spectator trips starts in Lyon. We have a number of private shuttles today from the Saint-Exupery airport to our hotel. Tonight is our official welcome dinner where we will introduce your staff and they will answer your questions about your spectator trip.
Prealps, Chartreuse and Vercors Mountain Stage
Feel the anticipation this morning while having breakfast, fuelling up for a day at the Tour de France. After breakfast we will drive to the stage start and see the riders for the first time. After the stage start, we’ll travel to another spot on the race route and see the peloton launching their attacks.
Mountains on the Queen Stage
Watch the tour live on the biggest stage, known as the Queen stage. The race climbs to above 2,000m twice. We will see a very photogenic climb from previous tours. Lacets de Montevernier is only a recent addition, and for the daring a short walk takes you along a balcony for a better view. We’ll see the race on Col du Madeleine, a classic climb between the Maurienne and Tarentaise valleys.
Hospitality on Race Route
It’s the last big mountain stage of the Tour. It is the last chance for a pure climber to make up and protect time on their rivals. Expect to see attacks launched on the last climbs. Today, enjoy seeing the race from our exclusive hospitality area on one of the climbs. A picnic lunch and television with a live feed on race-course, exclusively for our guests.
Annecy and a Stage Finish
We have our biggest transfer today, we will break it up with a brief visit to Annecy, often referred to as French Venice. A number of canals run through the historic centre, their cool waters offer relief on a hot day. Annecy is also on the shores of a beautiful lake framed by the French Alps, it’s a postcard! With lunch on board, we will head to the stage finish today, the final opportunity for sprinters before Paris.
Time Trial on Le Planche des Belles Filles
Today will confirm the winner of the 107th Tour de France. Strange things have happened in a final time trial, especially when served with a significant climb. See the only time trial of the 2020 Tour de France. As a penultimate stage, this race of truth has more influence on the yellow jersey than most stages. Tonight we enjoy our farewell dinner, leaving tomorrow night free in Paris after our special day on the Champs-Elysees.
VIP Experience on the Champs-Elysees
Aboard the TGV to Paris and arrive for the finale on the Champs-Élysées in a twilight event. Certainly the trip highlight each year on our Tour de France Spectator trip is the VIP Hospitality on the Champs-Elysees. Sip Champagne and see the final stage, also see La Course for Women on the same circuit in the lead up to the Final Stage in Paris.
Farewell Race Fans
Sadly our trip, along with the 2020 Tour de France has finished. We invite you to stay in Paris for a little longer and encourage you to visit somewhere that you haven’t been before. To our new friemds, we bid farewell and hope to see you again – soon.
