Cycling In Provence

Riding our bikes through the heart of Provence, we visit ancient vineyards, hilltop villages and discover the landscapes that inspired Vincent Van Gogh to paint here. We cycle past the ancient 'bories' (stone houses) in the Luberon and the Roman remains in Orange and St-Rémy-de-Provence, perhaps stopping to visit the region's elegant Romanesque abbeys or to enjoy mouth-watering Provençal cuisine and local wines.

Tour Highlights

  • Orange - Discover the 1st century AD Roman treasures, from the Arc de Triomphe to the superb Roman theatre
  • Dentelles de Montmirail - Cycle beneath the towering rock formations; Alpine foothills rising up from the edge of the Rhône valley
  • Food and wine - Visit Châteauneuf du Pape, sample the wines and some of the region's gastronomic highlights along the way
  • St-Rémy-de-Provence - Wander the streets of this delightful market town at the foot of the Alpilles mountain range and one time home to Vincent Van Gogh
  • Cycle the Luberon - Visit the beautiful 8th century village of Gordes

Cycling Information
On this trip we cycle 237 km over six days (an average of 40 km per day) with further more challenging optional rides available. One of the more challenging options is the classic Tour de France climb of Mont Ventoux. We use quiet, undulating roads although there will be several steeper sections. Maps are provided to cycle individually or in groups while the Explore Leader drives the support vehicle, except on circular routes when the Explore Leader will cycle with the group. We have graded the route as moderate.
