Activities

Burgundy isn’t just about wine – even in the iconic wine villages of the Côte de Beaune!

Activities abound! Enjoy green tourism on the Burgundy waterways on a barge or canal cruiser along the Canal de Bourgogne or Canal du Nivernais. Walk in the Morvan Forest, a marvellous place for bird watching, or watersports, play golf in the grounds of a château, cycle through a vineyard or take a bird’s eye view from a balloon.
