Walks

In Saône-et-Loire, remember to use the Route 71 application to plan your walk, with winemaking, gourmet and also cultural stops along the way.

Fancy hiking to really be at one with nature? Set off along the Route des Grands Crus (Route of the Great Wines) or one of the other trails with so much to discover. Our recommendation to always find the closest walk for you: use the "Balades en Bourgogne" mobile application.

How about exploring the Burgundy vineyard from a whole other perspective? We can recommend a hot-air balloon ride or a flight aboard an ultralight glider, for a once-in-a-lifetime experience admiring the vineyards that stretch as far as the eye can see... A memorable experience guaranteed!

Oenocaching, an original and trendy experience

You may have already heard of geocaching? It is the 21st century version of a treasure hunt, using GPS technology to find the "caches" in various places.

In Saône-et-Loire, the Château de Couches proposes this family-friendly activity, walking through the Couches vineyards in search of "codes". A great way to learn about the vineyards before going to a tasting session at the estate!

Original picnics

Gourmet break in the midst of the vines

Here's a great idea: While you're spending a day exploring the Burgundy vineyard, why not turn it into an all-round gourmet experience surrounded by the vines! Either bring your own picnic or pick up a picnic hamper from a local restaurant that offers this service, accompanied by wine from the very vine plot you are sitting in.

Mid-September, when the vineyards are full of the colours of autumn, come to the Fantastic Picnic event! To take this experience even further, there are plenty of places in Bourgogne-Franche-Comté (some of which are World Heritage Sites listed by UNESCO) offering their own version of the picnic. You will of course find some of them in the midst of the vines.

Climb up to the Rock of Solutré

Climbing up to the top of the Rock of Solutré is an experience you are sure not to regret. Especially when there is a tasting session waiting for you at the top, organised by Emmanuel from Enoculture for a climb that combines geology, archaeology and winemaking

Not so sporty

On a Segway, electric bike or scooter

You could also try some more original (and less tiring!) means of transport, to experience something different as you explore the Burgundy vineyards. Here are some examples:

- in the Chablis vineyard, electric bikes and scooters with E-bike Winetours.

- In Cormatin and the surrounding area, the Bourgui Trott', off-road electric scooters with Les Balades d'Estelle.

- In the Côtes de Beaune and the Côtes de Nuits, a Segway tour with Mobilboard.
