A Short Escape from Avignon to Arles — 2 nights/3 days
|Day 1 (any day except Sunday): Avignon — Saint-Rémy-de-Provence (20 km/12 miles, 75 meters/250 ft of climbing)
Meet with our local representative bright and early to begin your cycling tour! Your short ride will lead you to Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, a sunny town made famous by Vincent van Gogh’s painting of a café.
|Day 2: Saint-Rémy-de-Provence — Arles (Short Option: 43 km/27 miles, 370 meters/1,215 ft of climbing; Long Option via Les Baux: 51 km/32 miles, 530 meters/1,735 ft of climbing)
On both easy trails and small roads, you'll be biking through gorgeous scenery! Ride along the foot of the mountain range, pass vast fields of olive trees, and cycle through vineyards. You can stop for a wine tasting, if you choose! You may also opt to take a detour on a longer route option up to the hilltop town of Les-Baux-de-Provence. It’s a bit of a climb, as you’ll note in the route profile below! Your destination is Arles, a city whose amalgam of historic sites dating from the Roman era earns it its UNESCO World Heritage Site status.
|Day 3: Arles — Avignon and Departure (53 km/33 miles, 165 meters/545 ft of climbing)
Leaving Arles behind, you'll bike through Fontvieille, where Alphonse Daudet's windmill is located. Continue on to Tarascon and its castle, one of France's best-kept medieval fortresses. Tarascon is home to Souleiado, a Provencal fabric maker whose patterns bring joy to any home. After that, begin your return trip to Avignon. Riders who wish to visit the Frigolet Abbey and Barbentane may do so by opting for the longer route that will take them through "La Montagnette" (the small mountain).
