Thomson Tour de France KOM/QOM Challenges are the trips of choice for avid cyclists of all abilities looking for a unique blend of LIVE race-viewing and challenging riding.

You’ll witness Stage 9 on the spectacular Swiss climb to the Col de la Croix, LIVE on the mountain-side from our Private Hospitality Marquee, and mingle with pro riders and Tour celebrities with our privileged VIP access to the Departure Village at the start of Stage 10 in Morzine.

Riding is also a key feature of every Thomson Tour de France trip and on this trip you’ll conquer numerous famous climbs including Alpe d’Huez, Col du Galibier, Col de Joux Plane, the incredible Lacets de Montvernier, and a spectacular ride over the super-steep Col du Coq and through the Chartreuse Natural Reserve Park.
