Tour de France
01 July 2022 – 25 July 2022
The 2022 Tour de France (the 109th edition) is set to start in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Denmark will host its tenth Grand Départ, having previously seen the Tour de France race set off in 1981 with a Bernard Hinault prologue victory. From there, the tour will cover 3,400 kilometres, through the scenic French countryside to the finish line on the Champs-Élysées in Paris.
In 2022 the highly anticipated cycling race will run from 01 July – 25 July 2022 and will feature flats, hills and mountain terrain, as well as two individual time trial stages and two rest days. The full itinerary will be announced at a later date.

Watching The Tour de France live is an incredible experience. Before the professional riders come through the towns, an entire parade goes through the town entertaining the spectators. The atmosphere is electric along the route. This event is flexible and allows people the freedom to watch as many or as few stages as they like. There are also packages that offer cycling enthusiasts the opportunity to cycle part of the route either before or after the professional cyclists have gone through a section. The weather in July is superb, lovely long sunny days.
The alpine town of Annecy features everything we love about France: a mountain-fringed lake, geranium-bedecked houses, turreted châteaus and a generous scattering of pavement cafes. Be sure to visit Annecy’s medieval castle and explore the town’s many restaurants to sample fine French cuisine.
Düsseldorf is all about impressive architecture, a buzzing nightlife and a thriving art scene. Visit the Schloss Benrath, a baroque palace set in formal gardens just outside town, shop until you drop along the leafy avenue of Königsallee or marvel at 20th-century art (and an impressive collection of over 100 works by Paul Klee) at the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen (K20).
Art de Vivre (the art of living) is what characterises the French experience. A country quite unlike any other, France embraces a simple way of life and a rich artistic heritage that is felt in every element of society. Art, architecture, fashion, food, wine - the list is endless; France is world-class, iconic and culturally diverse in more ways than one. Visit the Eiffel Tower, Champs de Elysees and Montmartre in Paris or the wine country in Champagne. Explore the beachside city of Nice and discover spectacular sights like Mont St Michel and the Loire Valley Chateaux. Wherever you go, you can always enjoy a warm croissant and coffee in a typical street-side cafe. If you are visiting France for the first time, choose an area to explore and do it well - it will entice you to return again and again.
