The Camargue tour will take us through a wonderful region in the South of France, on the Mediterranean coast, a Unesco world-wide heritage site. The Camargue is made of wetlands, pastures, dunes and salt flats, in which a unique collection of plant life flourishes, including tamarisk and narcissi, and birds such as egrets, pink flamingos and ibises. The pastures provide gazing for sheep, and small white horses, ridden by the «gardians» (cow-boys), who take care of the black bulls. That tour will give you the opportunity to see horses, bulls, and flamingos in their natural habitat. A nature side-tour will also take you through wonderful sceneries on the coast as well as inland, visiting the beautiful villages of Les Saintes Maries de la Mer, Les Baux de Provence, and Avignon, as well as the Verdon canyon and Grasse. Overnight towns: Les Saintes Maries de la mer, Avignon, Digne- Les-Bains

Tour Itinerary

Day 1: Starting from the French Riviera you will ride along the Côte
d’Azur through little villages along winding roads, crossing the Rhone estuary towards the Saintes Maries de la Mer, especially famous for its oldest tradition of being the meeting place for the gypsy people. There are many ranches (called manades) where both bulls and horses are bred, and for the more adventurous, there is a windsurf speed canal waiting for you right next to the port!

Day 2: The tour will leave the Mediterranean coast to enjoy old Roman towns like Nîmes and Avignon with a stop in a jewel called Les Baux de Provence. The village is officially classified as «one of the most beautiful villages in France». Its cultural heritage is exceptionally rich, with 22 architectural treasures classified as «Historic Monuments» (including the church, chateau, town-hall, hospital, chapels, houses, doorways... without counting items of furniture and a collection of paintings). Les Baux covers 7 hectares and visitors can discover the main ruins of its dramatic past: the keep, Saracen towers, chapel, old war weapons... the history of Provence unfolds before your eyes amongst the rocks and stones. The night will be spent in Avignon, great city of the popes, and for centuries one of the major artistic centres of France. The city is filled with spectacular monuments and museums, countless impressively decorated buildings, ancient churches, chapels and convents, and more places to eat and drink than you could cover in a month.

Day 3: A nice day for a ride on little twisty roads to enjoy the motorcycles and the area, climbing the pre-Alpes towards Digne-Les-Bains, the préfecture of Alpes-de-Haute-Provence. This is a town with a medieval heart and an even older history. In the early 19th century Digne was a luncheon stop for Napoléon (you may want to check our Napoleon Road). Tour Digne has a compact center and a beautiful setting, sitting beside the fast-flowing Bléone river and surrounded by forested mountains.

Day 4: The last day of the tour is dedicated to a bit of challenging riding down the Alps towards the Côte d’Azur, with a leg around the Verdon river canyon. This immense and magnificent canyon straddles the departments of Var and the Alpes de Hautes Provence. In the midst of a nature reserve, rich in flora and fauna, the scenery here is astonishing. The custodial villages nestled at the foot of the fault have maintained their original Provençal appeal. Before ending our tour we will of course enjoy a stop in Grasse, the perfume capital of the world.
