    Cycle through a revolving landscape from the wilderness of the Camargue where wild horses roam, to scenes of picturesque Provençal villages and vineyards that inspired Van Gogh and the sandy beaches of the Mediterranean. The Camargue is rich in wildlife including flamingos and endemic plants, while its flat plains provide easy cycling, before giving way to the spectacular limestone foothills of the Alpilles. Explore the villages of Provence brimming with tasty treats, art studios and cultural relics. Enjoy a wine tasting in Chateauneuf-du-Pape and marvel at the well preserved Pont du Gard. Relax on board the barge after each day’s cycle and enjoy the views on the bank of the Rhone as you soak up the hospitality of the crew.
