Road Trip in France

Alsace Wine Region & Vosges Mountains

Less than 6 hours drive from Calais, you arrive at one of the most beautiful and undiscovered regions of middle France, the Alsace.  This region of France is famous for its fine wines, but it has another secret in store for you - the wine routes and the incredible Vosges Mountains offer up mile upon mile of incredible driving roads. 

This road trip tour starts from the delightful city of Strasbourg, famed as both the co-home of the European Parliament, but more importantly, as one of the finest medieval towns in North-Eastern France, set directly on the Rhine and just a few steps from the German border. From here, you will set out and journey south, heading immediately into the heart of the Vosges Mountains, where you will find delightful lower mountain passes rising to nearly 1300M, driving a loop of the most famous scenic road in these parts, Route des Cretes, before heading to your hotel in the heart of the mountains. On the second day, you have the opportunity to drive the historic Alsace wine route, from south to north, skirting around the city of Colmar, you will pass through some of the finest vineyards in Northern France, as well as enjoying a run-up to the famous Chateau du Haut Koenigsbourg with outstanding views across the Rhine Valley. 

The road trip tour in France then finishes back in the city Strasbourg for a final evening, before starting your return drive back to the UK.

Day 2, Tour of the Vosges mountains / Route Crete

Start your scenic Road Trip drive, leaving Strasbourg via a small mountain pass, and then stop for a visit to the old castle "Haut Koenigsbourg" dated from the 12th century, with views over the Alsace Rhine valley that are amazing!

Continue the journey through deserted mid-mountain passes, sweeping turns, lakes, pines forests, the perfect mix for all petrolheads, including a full loop of the stunning Route Cretes.

Day 3, Vosges and Wine Alsace wine route back to Strasbourg

Today you have a choice, two options to start the day with. Either you have had enough mountain roads on the previous day, and in that case, you can cruise down the city of Colmar, visit the old town, and then after lunch, head onto the wine route North to Strasbourg passing by picturesque villages OR if you want more mountain roads and then you start the day going up again into the mountains, around some of the small, deserted, sweeping roads, offering fantastic views to the Jura and even to the Alps, far away in the distance.

Then join the route back towards Colmar, cruising North by the wine route, stopping for wine tasting in one of the lovely Alsace villages - we can recommend 3-4 of the best winery along the wine route itself, and pre-book stops for you along the way.  Visits over, head back to Strasbourg.  We have a plan for both preferences, allowing you to choose on the day of the drive depending on how the mood suits you.
