Trip Information

A wonderful bike and boat vacation through the wild Camargue. Starting in historical Avignon, we'll make our way through typical Provencal landscapes, through the charming city of Arles towards our final destination, Aigues-Mortes, with its medieval fortress. 
Features to be explored include the hill-top village of Les-Baux-de-Provence and the well preserved Roman aqueduct, the Pont du Gard. All the while we'll be cycling amongst a landscape of limestone cliffs and olive trees.
Your accommodation for the week is on a specially-designed boat. During the day, a local guide will be leading the way, however route descriptions are provided if you'd prefer to cycle independently from the group. This tour is run in conjunction with a local partner and you will join their guests on board. You will spend your evenings sharing experiences of the day with an international group of cyclists over authentic regional cuisine, cooked and served on board the barge. Please get in touch if you'd like to know the make up of the group booked onto your chosen departure.
If the below dates don't work for you, or if you'd prefer to do the route the other way around, you could consider starting the trip in Aigues-Mortes and making your way to Avignon. Just contact us for details!
