The story begins on a beautiful day of July. We are on the road to the Tour de France 97, we are then 6 and 8 years old. The landscapes, the crowd, the show, the emotion experienced that day in one of the last laces of the Col de la Madeleine, giant of the Tour, was going to create for us what we call the passion. The one that brings you to see the Tour every summer and sets the pace for your youth.
Twenty years later, we are on the road to Santiago de Compostela, one of the oldest routes in the world, attracted by its historical importance and its mystique : the Saint James’ Way. It is in family that we undertake this journey by bike, this adventure reinforces our desire to share and offer cycling experiences to curious and passionate travelers. The following spring, the Veymont Travel adventure was born.
Over the years, the passion for travel has been added to the passion for cycling, naturally leading us to evolve in the cycling travel industry. Among others, our job as tour guides then opens us the gates of the Tour de France and its backstage. We now ride in the most scenic places: from the mythical Danube to the breathtaking Douro Valley in Portugal, from the Italian Alps to Flanders, and even in Taiwan to embrace new challenges.
Veymont Travel is based at the foot of the Vercors range in the Rhône valley between Alps & Provence. Our first passes, it is in this massif that we crossed them, this land rich of History. Our name comes from the “Grand Veymont“, the highest peak of the Vercors : 2341m, thus linking our story to the one of our territory.
