Let your senses be overwhelmed on this magical bike and boat holiday through Provence and the Camargue. Daily rides through ever-changing scenery, from the limestone cliffs and olive groves of Provence to the wide open marshes and wild beaches of the Camargue.
This cycle cruising holiday operates between Avignon, in Provence and Aigues Mortes in the Camargue close to the Mediterranean coast. You and up to 20 other cyclists will live aboard a comfortable barge that will spend 7 days wending its way along the waterways and canals of this delightful region. Each day you can choose whether to cycle alone, using the detailed route notes provided, or with the group led by an experienced bike guide.
As an introduction to this stunning region of France, this tour is in a class of its own. Visit Arles, where Van Gough enjoyed his most creative period, the stunningly beautiful medieval village of Le Baux de Provence as well as the Pont du Gard, Europe’s best preserved Roman aqueduct, and the gorgeous old town of Avignon, the City of Popes.
The cycling is relatively easy, following bike paths and quiet roads most of the time. There are a few hills along the way but there’s no rush so take a break to enjoy the view as often as you please.
Please note that this holiday also operates in the reverse direction.
