Burgundy Map
Think about France. Villages nestled in pretty valleys, steeples of medieval churches pointing out to the blue sky, traditional food fairs, green hilly vineyards, rich food and of course, its prestigious wines. Burgundy has it all, as you are about to discover! Ideally located at the crossroad of Western Europe, Burgundy has played a huge part in the future of France since the Gallic times. Add to this a sum up of all the French “clichés” and “raisons d’être”, no wonder it is called the cradle of France. For several centuries, the fame and power of the Duchy of Burgundy brought wealth to the region. Nowadays, its amazing architectural heritage can still be seen everywhere as the numerous typical Burgundy tiled roofs testify.

Itinerary

Day 1

dijon (Arrival)

Dijon is perhaps best known for its mustard (named after the town), which is still produced locally, but it is also one of the most beautiful cities in France.


Day 2
16.1km

dijon
to
GEVREY CHAMBERTIN

After leaving the capital of the Dukes of Burgundy to begin your first stage, you will enter the world of vineyards. By walking in the middle of them and small hills, you will discover an unspoilt nature, which will surprise you from the first day.


Day 3
11.8km

GEVREY CHAMBERTIN
to
NUITS SAINT GEORGES

Gevrey-Chambertin is a touristic, winemaking village situated on the Route des Grands Crus in the Cote de Nuits and particularly noted for the Grand Cru Burgundy wine. After breakfast, you will follow the road to Combes Lavaux. In this stage, you will walk along unspoilt vineyards, traditional Clos like the Clos des Lambrays and will even get to visit the castle of Clos de Vougeot, and its wall-enclosed vineyard.


Day 4
29km

NUITS SAINT GEORGES
to
BEAUNE

Nuits-Saint-Georges is the main town of the Cote de Nuits wine-producing area of Burgundy. Nuits-Saint-Georges was the site of the traditional wine Burgundian festival, la Saint-Vincent-Tournante, in 2007. To reach the next stage, you have to follow the “Chemin des Grands Crus”. After crossing some charming and genuine villages of Burgundy like Magny-Les-Villers or Pernand-Vergelesses, you could discover some of the most famous wine in Burgundy (Hautes Cotes de Beaune).


Day 5
19.1km

BEAUNE
to
MEURSAULT

Beaune is the wine capital of Burgundy. Beaune is one of the key wine centres in France and the annual wine auction of the Hospices de Beaune is the primary wine auction in France. Leaving Beaune, walk back to the town exit following the cycling path in direction of Santenay. After crossing Plateau of “Volnay”, where most of the vineyards in this area are classified Premier Cru, and pine trees forest walk along with the vines until going down to the village of “Auxey Duresses”. There you have to leave temporarily GR76 and “Sentier des Grands Crus” to go to Meursault for the night.


Day 6
11.5km

MEURSAULT
to
CHAGNY

Meursault produces mainly white wines from Chardonnay grapes, primarily in a style with a clear oak influence, which have led to descriptions such as “buttery” to be applied to powerful examples of Meursault wines. From Meursault, walk back to Auxey-Duresses and back on the “Chemin des Grands Crus”. You will be astounded about genuine and unspoilt landscapes (Chatelet de Montmeillan, the wood of “Chassagne”) in your last stage and several traditional hamlets (Gamay, Morgeot) will fill you with wonder to go back with a lot of great memories. Today you also have arranged for you a visit to the wine cellar of La Maison d’Olivier Leflaive in the prestigious wine-growing village of Puligny-Montrachet, followed by a wine tasting and special 3-course menu lunch.


Day 7

CHAGNY

The city of Chagny has been awarded the “green holiday”. The criteria for this quality charter allow it to stand out in terms of welcoming tourists, protected environment, outdoor activities, lodging, shops and services, tourism and dynamic presence of a two-start tourist office on the town. We can arrange extra nights anywhere on the itinerary after your last walking day. We can also arrange a station/airport transfer.
