General info

If you are in the mood for an unforgettable MTB trip, you should pay close attention now: We send you to the Trans Provence to the French Maritime Alps. As an absolute highlight among mountain bike tours, the Trans Provence has long since made a name for itself in the bike scene. In six days, more than 250 bike kilometers lead to the best single trails of Provence and the French Maritime Alps. The bike days are breathtaking and shine with great views of the mountains of the Maritime Alps. Without racing hustle and bustle, but with a sensibly designed ascent, we enjoy great 15,000 downhill meters of altitude with about 8500 uphill. Still an absolute insider tip, because on the trails you often meet no like-minded people or other recreational athletes for days.

As Guides accompany you two bike professionals. One of them will make sure that you are properly fed and strengthened during your MTB tour through the Trans-Provence. Every day a speciality picnic is served for lunch. This has the advantage that you only need a small daypack.

Accommodation
& Catering

The nights on your Trans Provence bike trip we spend every day in a different, beautiful accommodation. Pure variety, because we have everything from a mountain hut in the Maritime Alps to a city hotel. At all accommodations, the bikes can be parked in a locked room.

Catering

We also emphasize variety in our meals: breakfast is included in the accommodation. Dinner is either at the accommodation itself or we spread out and eat in great restaurants in the villages. During a short digestive walk we get to know the charming regions even better.

At noon, our guides will provide you with a picnic lunch from the region.

Destination
& Arrival

Provence is a landscape in the southeast of France, which shines with beautiful nature and numerous, well-known cities (e.g. Nice).

Interesting spots/trails

Every day, new impressions push themselves into the consciousness: It alternates gray, red and brown earth. Sometimes with a lot of grip, sometimes with less, sometimes a very ordinary single trail. Constantly the landscape changes, every day we notice the differences in the excellent cuisine. Sometimes the rustic flair prevails, sometimes we dive into the Mediterranean feeling of sun, beach and sea.

Travel options

We travel together from the Innsbuck area. We will inform you about the exact meeting point when booking. This way you will get to know your bike group for the next few days and save yourself long hours in the car. It is also possible to get on in Milan or Turin - so you can also arrive by plane to Innsbruck, Milan or Turin.

If you're coming from Switzerland, it's best to take the train to Milan.
