Hotel based Cycling and mountain biking Tours in South of France
Grands Causses, Gorges de Tarn, Provence & Dordogne.

La Ligne Verte is a local, family operated company dedicated to a personalized and customized approach of activity tourism since 199Cycling and hiking tours in Southern France2 in Southern France.
We're on the spot all year and work exclusively in the South of France, which by now we have come to know very well.
As locals, we know every site, every back-road, every detail that will make a big difference between the standard tours proposed by some international touroperators and our local, personalized and customized tours. We will help you to discover wonderful remote places and savour the essence of the hidden treasures and the highly preserved local cultures. Tours are really splendid and guarantee an unique experience.
We are a small organization not working on an allotment base and so we can receive you in small, characteristic hotels in remote places which only locals come to know.

Years of cooperation with local suppliers, hotel keepers, taxi drivers, local Offices de Tourisme (Comité Départemental de Tourisme (CDT) de l'Aveyron) and designers and with the maintenance workers of walking trails resulted in our Southern France network.
As direct seller and E-touroperator, working with the same hotels as British and American tour operators operating in the same area as we do, we can quote competitive rates and still have an outstanding personalized service. Especially for parties of 3 and more persons we have rather attractive small group discounts.

We don't have brochures to send to you and no extensive back-offices, but we are on the spot, all year to give assistance when needed. We communicate mainly by this website and by email, but we can also skype, phone or fax you, if you prefer. If you need more info than this website provides or if you want tailored information we will send it to you by email.
Our service and flexibility are the very best you can get.

We love travel and adventure but we also love perfect organization : every detail is checked, every thing is done so that all works out for the best.

This part of France is big enough for a great holiday. We are small enough to stay in touch with you.
