Tour de France

The Tour de France is the largest annual sporting event on the planet and going to watch a stage or two is something we highly recommend to anyone. After watching the race for many years at home in Australia we finally got the opportunity to experience the race live in 2013 where we saw three stages. Being roadside is a great experience and we have been lucky to see the Tour de France a number of times since 2013. We now live in the Pyrenees and looking forward to heading to the mountains for the 2024 edition of the race. The only question is what mountain to go to.

On this page, you will find links to a number of articles we have put together to help you plan and experience the Tour de France for yourself. Over the years we have learned plenty about the best way to experience the race roadside and there is lots of information for you to look through. If you don’t find what you are looking for here or need a hand then consider our travel advisory service.
