By bike & boat to Provence und Camargue - Avignon-Aigues Mortes - CAPRICE & L'ESTELLO

Experiencing French charm vividly

Untouched nature awaits you on this cycle and boat trip: Along the banks of the Rhône you cycle through vineyards and orchards, visit ancient masterpieces such as the Gallo-Roman aqueduct, the Pont du Gard, which supplied the town of Nîmes with around 20,000 litres of fresh water every day, or the medieval centre of Avignon. Discover the romantic castle of Barbentane, the magnificent abbey of Saint Michel or follow the paths of Vincent van Gogh. On your round trip in the Camargue, probably the most idiosyncratic part of southern France, you may also encounter a herd of wild horses.

Reiseverlauf

Day
Route

Arrival. Embarkation from 18 o'clock. The ship is waiting for you at Quai de la Ligne, at the famous bridge Pont St. Bénezet.

Today, crossing Île de la Barthelasse, you reach the other side of the Rhône and cycle in the typical Garrigue landscape between vineyards and orchards. Before your return, visit Villeneuve Les Avignon, in the past known as the city of the cardinals. In the afternoon you will discover the historic centre of Avignon.

In the morning the boat takes you to Aramon, where you start cycling. Today's stage will take you to the best-preserved Roman aqueduct in Europe: the Pont du Gard, an architectural masterpiece. In the evening you will moor in Aramon with a beautiful view of Mont Ventoux.

A morning boat trip takes you to Vallabrègues, a beautiful village on the banks of the Rhône. You then cycle on country roads to Barbentane with its castle between the Rhône and Durance rivers. Then you cycle on to the magnificent abbey of Saint Michel de Frigolet and then to the medieval castle of Boulbon. Overnight stay in Vallabrègues.

This stage takes you to Saint Rémy de Provence, the birthplace of Nostradamus. This village is also famous because Van Gogh lived here when he was mentally ill. Then you drive to Alpilles with the village of Les-Baux-de-Provence. A landscape with limestone cliffs and olive trees accompanies your journey.

In the morning you will visit Arles, the ancient capital of Gaul with its beautiful Roman ruins. After lunch you will reach the lock of Saint Gilles. From here a short boat trip will take you to Aigues-Mortes, where you will spend the night.

Today's stage is a round trip, during which you explore the Camargue, where nature is still untouched in many places. You will also visit the beautiful fishing village of Le Grau-du-Roi. There is the possibility to relax on the beach.

Disembarkation after breakfast and individual journey home.
