A Family Cycle Route in the forest of Compiègne

Make time for family activities together and enjoy some precious bonding time in wild nature as you explore safe, family-friendly cycle paths through one of the largest forests in all France.

Less than three hours from London and a short hop from Calais, France has cycle routes perfect for family days out amidst lovely scenery and wonderful views.

With its mainly flat, traffic-free routes, the Forêt de Compiègne is an ideal spot for outdoors activities for children of all ages. Slow down and relax as you feel the fresh air in your lungs and the wind on your skin. Being up-close with nature stimulates your creativity while making you feel pleasantly tired, and cycling itself is as good for the mind as it is for the body. And unlike in a car, exploring by bike brings it home to you that it’s all about the journey, not the destination, and about spending quality time together as you share special experiences and emotions during your family holidays in France.
