Overview

One of the world’s premier horse racing events, the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe, known to enthusiasts as the Arc, always promises an electric atmosphere.

Held at the spectacular Paris Longchamp Racecourse, the world’s top prize never fails to deliver top-quality racing. This is one of our favourite horse racing holidays at Spectate, and we truly do pull out all the stops.

Our experienced team has attended the Arc for many years, and we’ve built up strong contacts and plenty of insider knowledge.

Dating back to 1920, this is the jewel in the racing calendar’s crown, and for your Arc adventure you’ll be able to choose the perfect place to stay from our carefully-curated selection of Parisian hotels. Stay in the heart of the city, and let our team take care of everything from sightseeing excursions to dinner reservations.

We offer a wide range of hospitality and race viewing options with choices including complimentary champagne, access to private betting areas, rooftop or grandstand seating, paddock access, finish line grandstand seats and more. A dedicated tour host will be on hand throughout the weekend, so you’ll always have a point of contact for any assistance or recommendations you may need.

Please note, dates are estimated for 2020.
