What does a tour consist of?

The north of France weekend tour

The weekend tour normally starts on Thursday, and consists of three nights accommodation with breakfast in either the Bon Avis Chambre d'hôte, the 3* Hotel Beatus, or 3 nights (April to September only) at the campsite (no breakfast) at Honnecourt sur Escault, 3 evening meals, and 2 days Greenlaning, escorted by one of our Land Rovers.

Thursday you would travel to France, check into your accommodation, and then in the evening, meet at Lesdain for Dinner where we would all get to know each other.

Friday morning we would meet, normally at Lesdain, and escorted by one of our Land Rovers, we would set off for a days Greenlaning.

Normally the route would be up to 100 kilometres, and take about 8 hours, depending on the degree of difficulty of the route and the weather, with plenty of stops for photos, looking at points of interest, tea or coffee, and a picnic lunch.

On Friday evening, time to relax over dinner.

Saturday, we would set off again on a different set of lanes, returning for Dinner via the local hypermarket where you can stock up, should you wish, with wines, beers, hams and cheeses and all sorts of other goodies at prices considerably lower than the UK.

On Sunday morning its time to pack and head for home.


The standard tour is available with B + B accommodation 3* Hotel accommodation, or, between April and October, with Campsite accommodation.

If a standard weekend tour is not what you are looking for, you can come mid-week, or for a shorter or longer tour, or intersperse your days Greenlaning with other things. This can suit those who are coming with young children, for whom 2 consecutive days Greenlaning could be tiring.

Whatever you are looking for, contact us, and we will do our best to accommodate.
