Arles by bike

On the banks of the Rhône, between Provence and the Camargue, Arles reveals its history and everything that has influenced it. It is impressive with its fabulous Roman Arènes and inspires us just as much as it inspired Van Gogh in his day, when he spent several months here, and it enchants us on summer evenings with dinners on terraces, bodegas and street concerts. To discover all its facets, visit Arles and its region by bike.

Ride to the arena

Straight on as far as the sea!

Escapade on the ViaRhôna

There’s nothing better than the ViaRhôna to discover Provence on a large scale. This 815-km itinerary links Lake Léman to the Mediterranean, from Alpine landscapes to Provencal panoramas. Among them there is a very pleasant green lane alongside a canal, between landscapes of rice fields and vineyards. We recommend taking a break in the Marais du Vigueirat. This natural area which is part of the Camargue Regional Park is well worth a visit. More than 286 species of birds, 641 species of plants as well as bulls and horses all flourish here. Set off on the discovery trails on piles and enjoy the country snack bar, a must for a family outing!

 

A selection of circuits

The Camargue at your own pace

Just outside Arles, the Camargue spreads out: climb on your bike and be tempted by one of the many circuits which crisscross the region. There’s something for all tastes: easy escapades for beginner cyclists, medium circuits for the more seasoned riders. For families, we recommend the Le Cheval Camargue et le Riz circuit. Pedal along at your own pace, and you’ll come across a manade, an ornithological observatory and even the Salin de Badon (don’t forget to book beforehand!). For the fitter, try the Chemin des taureaux et de la vigne. A 30-km itinerary with a few more athletic portions in store. You can satisfy your curiosity around the two manades and the wine-growing estate along the route. The third option, the circuit from Arles to the Etang de Vaccarès covers a third of the stretches occupied by the ponds of the Camargue, around 6,600 hectares!
