Together with your guide you discover the Provence, the sunshine country of France. Experience the Provence with fertile, lush valleys, the Mediterranean coast, ancient and medieval cultural centers, the scent of herbs and the Provençal lifestyle.

This magnificent cultural landscape with its unique light and the intense colors has already attracted countless painters such as Van Gogh, Gauguin, Picasso, Matisse and Chagall. Besides the magnificent and varied landscape the Provence attracts with its history, art and architecture. Famous buildings like the Palace of the Popes in Avignon (world heritage) , the Arena in Arles and the Pont du Gard (world heritage) as well as the Greco- Roman ruins of Glanum and the medieval town of Les Baux in the Alpilles. A circular tour of the Camargue (Rhône delta protected moor landscape) is another highlight. With luck, you will discover even the famous pink flamingos and white horses, hallmarks of this landscape.


In addition to famous monuments from Roman times, such as the grandiose theatre and the Arc de Triomphe, the old town of Orange captivates with its Provencal charm, small, pretty cafés and inviting shops.


The wine-growing area named after the village of the same name is located in the southern Rhône valley.


Pope`s Palace Avignon

Individual arrival in Orange. Look forward to a city with well-known monuments from the Roman period. The magnificent theater and the Arch are historical witnesses of this era. The old town radiates an cozy atmosphere with its Provencal charm and small, quaint shops and cafes.

On the first cycling day, your guide will take you to the world-famous wine town of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Of course, you have time for a leisurely stroll. Then you cycle on bike path and without traffic to Avignon. During a guided city tour you will marvel at this magnificent city. You will visit among other things the Papal Palace, which was declared a national heritage site.

Today your guide will first take you to St. Remy, a typical town in the Provence. Under the shade of the plane trees in the old streets of the old town, the hustle and bustle, the colors and the richness of herb scents is hard to beat. Afterward your ascent is rewarded with a great view of Les Baux, which is known for its location high on the mountain and the fortress ruins the "city in the rock." On selected paths and small roads you leisurely cycle to Arles. Roman and Romanesque heritage culture shape the city and the history of Arles. Arles was the second most important city of the Roman Empire, but also the city of Vincent van Gogh. Enjoy this double overnight.

Half sea, half land, the Camargue is a unique natural area with brackish lakes, vast salt steppes, wild horses and the famous pink flamingos. On small roads you will comfortably follow your tour guide into this unique natural area. In Méjanes you have the opportunity to take a small train to admire the untouched nature and, with a bit of luck, flamingos and wild bulls. Now the road leads back to Arles, where a guided tour of the city awaits you in the afternoon.

In the morning we go to the two towns of Tarascon and Beaucaire, separated by the Rhône. The sights of these towns are the 12th century castles.  In Beaucaire, numerous cafés along the canal invite you to take a break.  In Nîmes, numerous buildings bear witness to the Roman era. Marvel at the Arena, the Maison Carrée or the Tour Magne. But modernity also makes its mark, for example with the Carré d'art (cultural centre) by Norman Foster.

The castle of Tarascon, high above the Rhône, accompanies you for a while through the vineyards of Costiérs-de-Nimes. Around noon, you will see the Pont-du-Gard, the famous aqueduct from Roman times and also a World Heritage Site. Aromatic plants such as lavender, thyme and rosemary are your companions on the way to the pretty town of Uzés, which captivates you with its enchanting medieval charm. The unique market square surrounded by arcades is worth a visit.

Today the landscape changes again. Your guide will lead you through the hilly landscape of the garrigue, overgrown with Kermes oaks and Mediterranean herbs. But soon the vineyards and the lovely orchards of Provence dominate again. In good spirits, you cross the wide stream of the Rhône, whiz through Caderousse and are back in Orange in the afternoon.

After the breakfast individual departure or extension in orange. Rail passengers reach by TGV train every station in Germany until the evening.
