A fantastic cycling holiday through Provence and the Camargue, taking you to some of the region’s most iconic scenery and fascinating cities. See the famous wild horses of the Camargue, follow the banks of the River Rhone to the famous vineyards of Chateauneuf-du-Pape, marvel at the Pont du Gard and soak up the history in Avignon.
You’ll start and end the tour in Arles, a delightful city where Van Gough had his most productive period. Your cycle tour will take you on a clockwise route, first into the wetlands of the Rhone delta and then on to the wonderful beaches at Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer. Turning north, you’ll visit the medieval fortress in Aigues Mortes and the Pont du Gard, the best preserved Roman aqueduct in Europe.
You'll visit Avignon, the capital of Provence and once the residential city of 7 successive Popes. A little further up the Rhone River you reach the vineyards of Chateauneuf-du-Pape, hallowed ground for many wine connoisseurs. You’ll cover around 50km per day with most of the riding on quiet country lanes and the odd section on unpaved roads. The terrain is largely flat, although there are a couple of gentle uphill sections to contend with.
