215km between Dijon and Migennes

From lovely riverside Auxerre to Dijon, Burgundy’s splendid capital, the Canal de Bourgogne à Vélo sums up Burgundy’s spirit, with cultural and gastronomic stops aplenty. Remarkable sights include Alésia, where Caesar defeated the Gauls, the Voûte de Pouilly, an impressive canal tunnel, and hilltop Châteauneuf-en-Auxois. From Migennes to Tonnerre, follow the canal towpath; on to Dijon, the greenway is idyllic. Perfect to do in 4 to 5 days.
