Cycling holiday in Sud-Aveyron

Packages Stages Prices

Around Causse du Larzac Vallée du Tarn, Pays de Roquefort and Gorges de la Dourbie.

Cycling along at your own pace, you're able to absorb the sights, scents, and atmosphere in a way you never could on an ordinary holiday.This region of France is a wonderful location for a light French cycling holiday with major river valleys clad in green woods and forests. Often as though hanging from cliff edges you see many sandstone fortified villages. Romantic ancient villages are just some of the delights to see on your French cycle tour in the extraordinary variety of landscapes of Aveyron and the Parc Naturel des Grands Causses.
A light journey along three rivers: Tarn, Sorgue and Dourbie.
