THIS TOUR HAS ALREADY TAKEN PLACE. We were thrilled to finally have the opportunity to visit this lovely region of France. We hope to include Provence on a future tour calendar. Contact us if you would like to join our mailing list to be notified of future tour offerings!
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have rescheduled this tour to June 11-18, 2022. This tour will now start in Aigues-Mortes and finish in Avignon. Included in the price of the tour is a transfer by shuttle from Avignon (where there is better access by train) to the ship. You’ll meet tour director Stephanie in Avignon, and she will escort you to Aigues-Mortes where the crew of the Caprice will welcome you aboard.
You’ll cycle along quiet roads amidst a breathtaking landscape of vineyards and orchards. Along the way, you will visit charming villages and ancient landmarks and discover why, in ancient times, Provence was vital to the Celts, Greeks, and Romans; and in more modern times, the landscape inspired artists like Van Gogh and Cézanne.
In the Camargue region, you’ll view a dramatic river delta, home to wild horses, flamingos, and countless other bird species. In Aigues-Mortes, you’ll visit a medieval fortress. At the Pont du Gard you will view the UNESCO site of an ancient Roman aqueduct.
The terrain will be mostly flat, with a few short climbs and descents, suitable for most cyclists.
