There is more to France than berets and brie! The bistros and brasseries are worth the praise, and the Bordeaux and burgundy wines will appease any palette.

And yet, that’s just the tip of the iceberg for this getaway!
SPOILER: Champagne house tours, lavender fields, and a yachting day along the French Riviera.

Explorateur Travel is ecstatic to host a 8 night trip through France with a focus on local cultural experiences (and just some fun stuff along the way). With hand picked hotels, bespoke curated experiences, and the perfect balance of free time and structure....this trip is sure to be one to remember!

We will be working our way through France by planes, trains and automobiles from June 5 - 14, 2020. We can't wait for you to join us!
