VIP Official Operator of the Tour de France

103rd Tour de France - 2nd to 24th July 2016

The route of the 2016 Tour de France has now been announced!

Sports Tours International is an Official VIP Tour Operator of the Tour de France and we have been operating trips to the Tour de France for over twenty years. We have unrivalled knowledge and expertise of the inner workings of the Tour and we know exactly where to take you and how to get the very best out of your Tour experience to give you the most authentic experience.
This is a cycling holiday with a difference!

Unsurprisingly, as you would expect (!), we are already looking forward to the 2016 Tour de France. 

The route of the 2016 Tour de France:
The route highlights are: the Pyrenees and Andorra, Mont Ventoux, the Alps and a short sejourn into Switzerland.
There are 2 time trials; a 37km individual time trial into the Ardeche and a mountain time trial from Sallanches to Megève.

The Grand Depart of the 2016 Tour de France is in La Manche in North West France so it is back in France for the first time since 2013. Our travel package to the 2016 Grand Depart of the Tour de France is now on sale. For more information, please click here.

After the Grand Depart in La Manche, the race makes its way very quickly into the Pyrenees via Angers, Limoges and Montauban. It is here where the sprinters can clock up some wins. The race will not spend too much time in the French Pyrenees before visiting Andorra. After Andorra the Mont Ventoux is tackled on Bastille day, July 14th so the French will want to win this one. Straight after there is a tough time trial into the Ardeche so this will be a key couple of days for pre-decisive gains in the GC.

We will then visit the Alps and the second rest day will be in Bern, the Swiss capital. The 2016 Tour de France's visit to the Alps is completely dominated by the Mont Blanc region with finishes in Megève, Saint-Gervais-Mont Blanc and Morzine.

Our full programme of tours to the 2016 Tour de France will be available soon, sign up to our newsletter and we will be in touch when the packages are available.

New for 2016:
In 2016 all our multi-day Tour de France trips including the 2016 TDF Grand Depart in La Manche will include the official welcome pack and road book plus 3 fantastic VIP access elements to make your TDF experience with us even more special.
