The Northern France Stages VIP Experiences

7th to 11th July 2014

With the 2014 Tour de France moving into France for the 4th stage after visiting Yorkshire and London for the 2014 Grand Depart, as a VIP Tour Operator to the 2014 Tour de France, we have some incredible experiences available for you in Northern France, the Vosges mountains, the Alps and the Pyrenees and Bordeaux

Further to our standard tour which takes in the Northern France Stages with coach from the UK to watch the Northern stages of the 2014 Tour de France, we can also offer some unique trips with VIP access to the Tour...

The Stages:

Tuesday 8 July - Le Touquet Paris Plage to Ypres - 164km
On the 8th of July 2014, le peloton will cross the Channel for a start from Le Touquet Paris-Plage. This 4th Stage will link Le Touquet with Lille or more exactly, a finish in Villeneuve d'Ascq at the Stade Pierre Mauroy.

Wednesday 9 July - Ypres to Lille - 156km
After yesterday's first stage back on French soil, Stage 5 starts in Ypres, Belgium, to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the beginning of World War I. Ypres was the epicentre of some of WWI's heaviest fighting.

This stage is very interesting as you will see whippet-framed climbers bounce up and down on the cobbles. More than 15 km will be on 'Secteurs Paves' used during the 'Hell of the North'; Paris-Roubaix. More info here on what to expect.

Thursday 10 July - Arras to Reims - 194km
On July 10, Stage 6, from Arras to Reims, will also follow much of the First World War Western Front. The Tour will say goodbye to Northern France. The Yellow Jersey will leave the region with a depart from Arras in the direction of Reims and the Champagne region.

Le Touquet-Lille. Ypres-Wallers-Arenberg. Arras-Reims. 3 étapes dans le Nord Pas-de-Calais pour le Tour de France 2014.

Arras start village VIP access:
On Thursday 10 July the 2014 Tour will start from the town of Arras before setting off for Reims. You will have passes which give you VIP access to the activities surrounding the stage start. We expect the "start village" to open around 10:30am. On arrival you will be greeted by someone from the Tour de France organisation who will show you around the area and give you an insight into the inner workings of the Tour. This area is off limits to the general public and there are various things to look at like shops and exhibitions and there will be entertainment as well.

The highlight of this is the fact that the VIP accreditation also gives you access to the riders' start area so you can mingle with the racers and team directors and other people close to the inner world of cycling. Many people really enjoy the start village access due to the fact that you get very close to actual riders and you get a good insight into the inner workings of the Tour de France.

Also available to book as an additional extra if you book our Coach trip from the UK.

Price: £199 per person. Hotel options are also available. Please contact us on cycling@sportstoursinternational.co.uk

These are just some of our fantastic Tour de France VIP experiences that we are able to offer as we are an Official VIP Tour Operator of the Tour de France.  We also have other experiences available for other stages in France and also for the finish of the Tour on the final day in Paris.

We also offer travel packages to enjoy the Tour in Yorkshire and in London.
