Provence by bike

Visiting Provence by bike is an experience to live with all senses, capable of combining fun, art and nature.


Discovering Provence by Bike: Exploring the Landscapes and Gastronomic Heritage of the Region 

When you think of Provence, you might envision lavender fields, sunflowers, Impressionists, and beautiful rural villages. Indeed, Provence is all of these, but it is primarily an ideal destination for a bicycle tour in France. 
Exploring Provence by bicycle will allow you not only to fully appreciate its breathtaking landscapes at a leisurely pace, but also to take a step back in time, immersing yourself in the history and traditions of southern France. 
Starting from historically rich cities, like Avignon and Arles, you’ll be able to meander through sun-soaked countryside, capture unforgettable photos of the lavender fields, immerse yourself in the vineyards and feel as though you're in a painting by Van Gogh. You'll fall in love with the stunning St. Rémy and the flavors of the local cuisine, leading you all the way to the nearby Camargue, and then the sea. 
Experiencing Provence by bike is a multi-sensory journey and an ideal destination for the whole family, perfectly marrying fun, art, and nature. If you too are ready for a unique experience in France, on your bike, all that's left is to pack your suitcase: our tours are waiting for you! 

Discover Provence by bike between cycle paths and bike routes through the South of France 

The bike paths of Provence are mainly two: the Via Rhôna, which connects Switzerland to the Mediterranean and Véloroute de la Méditerranée, which follows the Mediterranean coast for about 250 kilometers, offering spectacular views of the Mediterranean and crossing cities such as Marseille, La Ciotat, and Cassis. Both of these routes are part of the Euro Velo routes, but there are many others, which alternate stretches of roadway, Voies Vertes, and Véloroutes. 
By choosing to explore Provence by bike, you will also find yourself crossing picturesque Provençal villages such as Gordes, Roussillon, or Les Baux de Provence. Here you can surrender to the relaxed rhythms and romantic atmospheres of the south of France, strolling among small stone houses and stopping to watch life flow from the terrace of a café, on one of the many squares framed by plane trees. 
If you dream of visiting Provence and its bike routes, on Cyclando you can find a wide selection of tours created by the best tour operators in Europe.

Cycle tourism in Provence with Cyclando's tours 

Doing cycle tourism in Provence is a dream for many, but it's not always easy to perfectly organize the trip. If in fact you're thinking of going on a bicycle trip in Provence, the advice is to carefully plan your trip, assessing stage lengths, differences in height, which in these parts can be challenging in some cases and ensure that your means of transportation is suitable for the course you're going to do. 
Also, the choice of period should not be underestimated: the best time to visit Provence is between mid-June and early August, when lavender is at the peak of its bloom and cycling on the Routes de la Lavande, between Luberon and Alta Provence, becomes a mystical experience, made of intense colors and scents. 
The last piece of advice we feel like giving you is finally to book your accommodations in advance, especially if you choose to travel during the summer season: some of the villages where you can stop offer a limited availability of beds and in certain periods of the year you might have difficulty finding a place for the night. 
However, if you think that organizing a bike trip in Provence is too complicated, leave it to us! On Cyclando we select the tours of the best tour operators in the field, to always guarantee you a fun and reliable experience. With just one click you can indeed book your dream trip and immediately set off for your next adventure.
