This guidebook, which has been co-built with the Camargue Natural Regional Park, the Grand Site de France Camargue Gardoise and the tourist offices of the destination, invites a local family clientele to discover culture and an exceptional heritage. Six day-stages enable cyclists to cover the territory over around 1050 km of signposted itineraries, great European itineraries (ViaRhôna and Méditerranée à vélo) and local loops developed by the Departments.
